Do people have examples they'd like to share of what is considered a
good UI for a workflow application? (Roles, tasks, steps,
dependencies, etc)

I've seen things like Gantt charts and other diagram-type interfaces
versus more grid/spreadsheet-type design patterns. Are there any data
on which patterns work better?

TIA,
--Alan

You may want to look into SharePoint. In my (albeit limited)
experience with it, they've really got every base covered.

Not saying the UI is all that great, because there's many, many
areas for improvement. But when you see all the features and
functionality they have packed in, you may be able to pick and choose
what you need from their best ideas and improve the implementation.

Here's an overview with several workflow-related articles and
screencasts in the sidebar as well: http://is.gd/FGGm

Take a look at the Nintex Workflow add on to
SharePoint(http://tinyurl.com/cpw9dw). They have a nice video that
might give you some ideas.

Kind regards,

Will
