Dynamics GP Workflow offers a wide range of benefits to organizations of all sizes, including increased productivity, improved accuracy, better visibility into workflow status, and enhanced security. This blog post will explore the features and benefits of Microsoft Dynamics GP Workflow in more detail, and provide a step-by-step guide on how to install it.
What is Dynamics GP Workflow?
Workflow is a tool in Microsoft Dynamics GP that allows businesses to automate their business processes. It allows users to define a sequence of tasks that need to be completed to accomplish a specific business process. These tasks can be assigned to different users, departments, or groups, and the workflow engine will ensure that each task is completed in the correct sequence and on time. Workflow can be used to automate a range of business processes, including approvals, reviews, and notifications.
Workflow is a new feature included in Dynamics GP, so all the work is done inside your ERP. If you own GP 2013 or later, then you have access to Workflow. All you have to do is set it up and starting using it.
Features of Workflow
- Visual Workflow Designer
Microsoft Dynamics GP’s visual workflow designer makes it easy to create and modify workflows. Users can simply drag and drop workflow steps and link them together to create a workflow. The designer also provides a visual representation of the workflow, making it easy to see how each step is connected.
- Email Notifications
Email notifications can be configured to notify users when a task is assigned to them or when a task is completed. This allows users to stay informed about the status of their tasks and ensures that they are completed on time.
- Approval Workflow
The approval workflow in Microsoft Dynamics GP allows users to define an approval process for documents such as purchase orders, payables invoices, and employee expense reports. Users can specify who needs to approve each document, and the workflow engine will ensure that each document is approved in the correct sequence.
- Rejection Workflow
The rejection workflow in Microsoft Dynamics GP allows users to define a process for handling rejected documents. When a document is rejected, it can be automatically routed to the user who needs to make corrections, and the workflow engine will ensure that the corrected document is resubmitted for approval.
- Reminder Workflow
The reminder workflow in Microsoft Dynamics GP can be used to send reminders to users when a task is approaching its due date. This helps ensure that tasks are completed on time and that users are aware of upcoming deadlines.
Benefits of Using Workflow
- Increased Efficiency
Workflow in Microsoft Dynamics GP can help businesses automate time-consuming and manual processes, which can help increase efficiency and productivity. By automating processes, businesses can reduce errors and improve the overall quality of their work. This allows staff to focus on more strategic tasks that require their expertise, while also ensuring that all workflows are completed in a timely and efficient manner.
- Streamline Processes
With workflow, businesses can streamline their processes by defining a clear sequence of tasks needed to complete a business process. This can help reduce the time it takes to complete a process and ensure that each step is completed in the correct order.
- Improved Communication
Workflow in Microsoft Dynamics GP can help improve communication between users by providing email notifications and reminders. This ensures that users are informed about the status of their tasks and helps ensure that tasks are completed on time.
- Better Visibility
Dynamics GP Workflow is designed to ensure that all workflows are secure and comply with internal policies and regulations. It allows businesses to define security roles and permissions, ensuring that only authorized personnel have access to sensitive information. This enables visibility into business processes by providing a clear and visual representation of each process, allowing users to see the status of each task and understand the overall process.
