EngageBay workflow is a series of Actions or Conditions or a combination of both that can be triggered by execution.
The difference between automation and workflow is that the workflow doesn’t have a trigger event. It has to be started manually by execution.
- Go to the Sales dashboard.
- Click on the three dots (...) right next to Calendar.
- From the drop-down menu, select Workflows.
- In the upper right corner, click Create Workflows.
- Set a unique name for your workflow. Press Continue.
You can then start adding the Action or Condition from the list to your workflow.
Action and Conditions nodes that can be used in Automations / Workflows
Actions are a series of processes that a deal or a contact proceeds through once they enter your automation. As the predefined conditions are satisfied, the action is executed.
You can use actions to establish both internal and external communication. For instance, you can set actions to communicate with your leads via SMS or emails. You can even use actions to update a deal owner, change deal milestones, and much more.

A few automations that can you execute on the sales module
Doing all tasks manually can be repetitive and time-consuming. Besides, it can take away the focus from the primary goal of closing more deals. Using EngageBay, you can automate your sales process — right from lead generation to closing a deal.
In your EngageBay account, you can automate different stages in the customer lifecycle. Some of the sales activities that you can automate include:
Automate Lead Assignment
When a new lead is generated and added to the pipeline, we assign them a sales rep. You can automate lead assignments when a new deal is created or a milestone is changed. This enables equal distribution of leads amongst your sales reps, allowing them to interact with those leads without wasting time on any other activity.
Automate Follow-up Tasks
You can create a workflow for dealing with a huge number of leads with the same type of content. For instance, you can automate sending welcome emails when an event is created.
Automate Communication With Leads and Prospects
Let’s say, a user has signed up for a trial period. So instead of manually sending them a series of emails at regular intervals, you can automate this task and create an email sequence to be sent on a predefined schedule.
