The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog started a series of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Feature of the day posts the other day. As they did with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day posts they are doing them as short posts containing a PowerPoint slide show. I am translating these from the PowerPoints into posts; you can find my series index here.
The sixth Feature of the Day covered is Workflow Types. The new Workflow system in Dynamics GP2013 R2 includes only four workflows, although Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 coming later in this calendar year will include more.
The Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Workflows:
- Purchase Order Approval
- Purchase Requisition Approval
- Payroll Timecard Approval
- Project Timesheet Approval
Others that are on the list for inclusion in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 are Project Expenses, Sales Order, and Batches although this list is subject to change.
