The tenth Feature of the Day covered is Workflow Calendar.
In the new Workflow system for Microsoft Dynamics GP2013 R2, each step in a workflow can be given a time limit which calculates a due date/time by which the task must be completed. The Workflow Calendar allows users to define standard working hours for the company and holidays; this calendar can then be used in calculating the due date/time of a task so non-working days or time does not count against the time limit to complete the task.
For example, if a task with a time limit of 8 hours is assigned at 4:00 on Friday afternoon, and the company’s working hours are Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm, then the due date/time for the task is set to 3:00pm the following Monday.
I’m liking the look of the new Workflow, although I do want to have a dig into the technical side of it. That said it does seem to have some good functionality with this calendarbeing useful (I’m assuming a little here) for reminders and reporting.
