Workflow allows set of pre-defined activities to be executed.  Workflows work using Windows Workflow Foundation 4.0 engine in SharePoint 2013.

Then click the Workflow Settings and in the appearing page choose Add a workflow.


In the appearing page you can choose the workflow & enter name, configuration settings.


Choose the start option to start on creation of new item.
