Help Registered MembersWorkflow Approvals
If you want to take advantage of our established workflow process, then you'll want to select an appropriate WorkFlow Type that best fits your needs. Otherwise, if workflow approval is not important, workflow type will be ignored as long as no Selected Approvers are entered.
We now have three established workflow models:
- All selected approvers must sign off in the selected order (Serial)
- All selected approvers must sign off in any order (Parallel)
- Only one of the selected approvers must sign off (Alternate)
Serial WorkflowChoose this option if you want all Selected Approvers to approve the user's requisitions IN THE ORDER in which names appear in the list.
Parallel WorkflowSelect this option if you want all the Selected Approvers to approve the user's requisitions IN ANY ORDER.
Alternate WorkflowSelect this option if ONLY ONE approval from the Selected Approvers is required. A potential use of this option would be so managers could back each other up in case of vacations, traveling, etc.
Administrator OverrideAn Administrator may approve a requisition and override the remaining approval requirements, regardless of the Workflow Type selected. In other words, if an Administrator approves a requisition, it will IMMEDIATELY be sent to Power & Tel as an order.
