Approval Group

Approval Groups are groups of authorized approvers who are notified when particular work items are submitted.

For example, when Mavis creates a Work Order to procure a worker, the Work Order must be approved before it can be sent to Suppliers.

The Approval Group consists of all users or systems in WorkingNet who are required to review and approve that Work Order.

A Work Order Approval group is associated to a transaction and can be tracked through the Approvals/Audit Trail tab.

Navigating the Approval Group Admin Object

Select the Approval Group admin object from the Workflow section of the admin menu to view the list of approval groups available in WorkingNet’s tenant.

Configure a New Approval Group

WorkingNet needs an Approval Group specifically for Job Postings for positions within NetAlysis, the new line of business it recently formed to develop network diagnostic software.

This Work Group will contain approvers from within the NetAlysis team as well as managers within WorkingNet.

Here is how you would set up that approval group.
