You don’t need to know programming languages to set up and run a bot in airSlate WorkFlow. As soon as you set up a workflow, you can start configuring bots. Simply select the needed bot from the library, add it to your workflow, and use the settings to tell the bot what it needs to do when certain conditions are met. You’re not limited to using the access rights bots and can include as many of them as your workflow requires.

Our platform's library offers various permission bots, including Access control and Signature bots. You can select the respective bot depending on the type of access you want to give or restrict. Generally, using Access control bots, you can expand or limit editing rights for a document and/or entire workflow. You can show or hide documents based on the pre-set “if-this-then-that” logic; reassign specific steps to other users if previous ones failed to do so; automatically redirect to the website; forbid users to save the document as draft or save changes made to the document. To view the complete list of bots, please follow this link.

Any permissions within airSlate WorkFlow can be managed from your workspace (if you want to assign specific roles, like Admin, Editor, etc. ) or through our no-code bots (if you want to give or restrict access rights to the users who are a part of your workflow). Please head to our library and get detailed instructions on how to give bots permissions to limit or expand access to a particular document or workflow.

Data safety must always be high on the list of priorities to avoid data breaches, losses, and possible aftermath litigations. Choosing a solution that offers versatility when it comes to access management is key to protecting your sensitive data. airSlate WorkFlow helps prevent data mismanagement and ensures that the information can be accessed quickly and by designated users only.

You’re to decide what permissions you give the bot to run. For instance, when restricting or enabling editing access rights, you can choose from a wide selection of feature options. You can order the bot to act open based on specific conditions. For example, specific editing features can be enabled once the user fills out the email field, etc. Enroll in our free course to learn more about how our automation bots work!
