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 seventh Feature of the Day covered is Workflow User Delegation. The new workflow creates task assignments for users with a due date/time by which the task must be completed.
Users have the option to delegate task assignments to another user on a task-by-task basis, but also if a user will be out of the office for an extended period of time, the system also offers the option to set up automatic delegations to reassign the task.
In the Workflow User Delegation window delegation can be configured for all workflow types, or delegation can be configured on a per type basis:
Once delegation configuration is complete, if a task is assigned to the user while he or she has turned on the automatic delegations, the task is then automatically delegated to the assigned delegate.
