Abstract

This disclosure achieves the following: as, or after, a user manually navigates through a series of steps in a process, formal or informal, instantiated as elements in the interface of a portal or Web application, he is able to save the series of steps taken to be generated as a custom or ad hoc 'wizard-like' workflow. Further, the user can very easily edit the workflow, wither in-context, or within an editor. The editing can consist of adding, removing, or re-ordering process steps.
