Follow the instructions below to learn how to set up and modify a purchase workflow in a matter of minutes using the Assisted Setup wizard.
To begin, use the search feature to open the Assisted Setup Page:
Scroll down to the Setup Approval Workflows header, where you will see a few available wizards to help you set up different workflow types. In our example, we will select Set up Approval Workflows.
The Approval Workflow Setup wizard will open. Then you can select Next to begin the setup.
Select the type of Approval Workflow you want to set up. In our example, we will enable Purchase Invoice Approval and then select Next.
On the next screen, select the approver. The “Who is the Approver” drop-down menu will look up your User Setup page.
Enter the minimum amount of a purchase invoice that requires approval and select Next.
Select Finish to enable the selected Approval Workflows with specified settings.
Now that you have your basic Approval Workflow setup, you may search and navigate to the Workflows page. You may modify your workflow by selecting Manage -> Edit.
Next, ensure your workflow is disabled before editing.
You may drill down on the first event condition to modify the entrance criteria.
The Event Conditions screen will open, allowing you to add additional filters for entrance criteria.
In this example, we also want our workflow to apply to Purchase Orders, so we will add Purchase Orders from the Document Type drop-down.
When we are done making changes, we can re-enable our workflow.
