Approvers are responsible for ensuring that all of the information for a transaction is
correct and complete before clicking the approval button and sending it to the next
person in the workflow.
Many daily tasks are part of a larger process involving multiple people approving
various transactions. For example, account funding changes and job changes all require
approvals from a number of people. In the new system, designated people have the approver
role, which gives them approval functionality.
The term "workflow" refers to processes that involve multiple users (including initiators
and approvers) and the routing of information between the users. When an approver
in the workflow approves a transaction in the system, it triggers a workflow notification via
email to inform the next approver in the process of pending transactions.
Alert If this is your first time using eLearning resources at this website, read this important eLearning tip sheet
eLearning – Workflow ApprovalsThis self-paced eLearning shows how approvers access and take action on transactions via
theAffiliate Actions home page, theePAF home page (Personnel Action Form), theManage Benefitshome page, and an emailed link(from an email they receive as part of the workflow for a given transaction).
Approvers have four selections after reviewing all the information for a given transaction:approve,hold(for when an approver needs additional time to learn more before approving the transaction),deny(which stops the transaction and sends an email to the initiator), andrecycle(which sends an email to the initiator, with comments written by the approver that
explain in specific terms what needs to be submitted for approval to proceed).
Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
