2018 has been marked by revelations that Cambridge Analytica used millions of Facebook users’ data to manipulate elections.

Velocity IT, the boutique process automation specialist, has launched its brand new website, whose user-friendly interface optimises the user journey and welcomes business oriented visitors to browse a growing library of business tech resources.
K2 smartforms and the K2 community controls do not have a lightweight mini calendar control for the dynamic presentation of dates, in a colorful format. For example, you might have a requirement to highlight a particular date, using a colour, which varies on the event type. Conditional formatting in smartforms can be used to achieve something similar, but not within a calendar control.

It’s here! K2’s next generation no- and low-code business application development platform K2 Five and K2 Cloud has been released, and developing business apps using it is now even easier and faster than before.
The K2 platform provides technical and non-technical users a capability to fully automate manual business processes, turn paper-based forms to digital and integrate with virtually any 3rd party system. Workflow metrics and business information are made available in an advanced reporting and analytics module, and this helps organisations increase their performance.

In this blog, I will use multi-user impersonation in a BenchQA test case to test multi-user interaction with a K2 SmartForms application. We will start by submitting a new leave request process using one user, and automatically login as another user to approve the leave request.
