#### Workflows and processing data
The tab 'Workflows' allows defining a workflows which will provide a template for processing data. A workflow is simply a set of defined steps that will process data. Workflows each step in the workflow executes a command on the host computer. Commands can
* be as simple as a single command such as listing a directory
* can tranfer files between computers
* can transfer files between computers
* can launch & monitor jobs on a remote cluster
* can do just about anything that can be scripted on a computer.
Workflow steps allow defining inputs that are defined at runtime and can also create outputs that can be used in following steps.
