Flow folder

Flow folders are like ordinary folders in that they contain a number of other objects such as documents and notes. In addition, they have an associated list of tasks that need to be carried out with the material contained in the folder. A flow folder is forwarded to the users responsi­ble for the execution of the individual tasks in the order given in the flow folder.

The tasks of a flow folder consist of a name, an informal description and a responsible; they are not objects on their own, but part of their flow folder, and are not to be confused with the proper tasks described above.
