    3. Reporting for Workflow

    This functionality supports a new workflow history report that can be filtered by workflow type, workflow approvers, workflow status, and by the approval date. It also allows the user to add a comment on the report.

    4. Payable Transaction Workflow – additional fields

    There are additional fields introduced in the payable transaction workflow. The new fields include:

    3. Comment 2
    4. Vendor class ID

    In order to utilize the additional fields, you have to mark the Extended fields list option in the Work Maintenance window, and then select the fields you want to use in the Workflow Condition Editor.

    5. GP PO Workflow Messages – additional fields

    This feature lets you add account descriptions to workflow messages that are shared via email for Purchase Order workflows and Purchase Requisition workflows.

    6. EFT/Bank Details to Vendor Approval Workflow

    This enhancement supports additional data in the Vendor Approval Workflow that populates the specific bank that the vendor uses for Electronic Fund Transfers (EFT). The additional fields are:  country, bank name, bank account, and SWIFT code.

     

     7. New workflows – new accounts, receiving transactions, and purchasing invoices

    In order to control the addition of general ledger accounts, purchase receiving transactions, and purchasing invoices, new workflows have been added. For General Ledger (GL) accounts, the workflow can be initiated from any area of the system for new accounts or for any accounts that are already in the workflow state.
