When we consider the development of an application on the
SharePoint platform, such as issue tracking, automatically think of
the workflow that will control and manage the lifecycle of
information, in this case, the issues that can occur.

Let’s go to consider these requirements and their
• First of all we have the workflow that
controls the life cycle of an issue:
o Preliminary evaluation

To meet these technical requirements will need to have powerful
tools that allow us to go beyond the basic functionality of the
SharePoint platform without having high expertise.
