How To Automate The Creating Active Directory Group Using SPARK Forms Builder and Workflow

In this video you will see how you can use SPARK Forms Builder and SPARK Workflow to create self-services IT support requests to create a new Active Directory Group. The form will save the request and initiate the workflow, the workflow will send an approval task to the IT Manager to review and approve/reject the request. If the request is rejected, the workflow status will set to Rejected and will do nothing. If approved, the workflow will create a new AD group based on the information provided in the form. All this will be fully automated without the need to waste the IT department valuable time.


How To Automate The Adding of an Active Directory User to Group Using SPARK Forms Builder and Workflow
