The Workflows feature in R365 allows your organization to establish a chain of approvals for specific transaction types (AP Invoices or Journal Entries) and amounts.  Workflows can be established for each Location or Location Reporting Category, as well as for specific Vendors.  Each Workflow can have up to 10 approval levels as necessary.

Navigation


Workflows are accessible in two separate places in Restaurant365:


1) Administration Menu - hover over 'Administration' and select 'Workflows Setup'.  This is where Workflows are set up and maintained.  Only users with 'Full Access' or 'User Setup' can access the Workflows Setup page


 

2) User Menu - hover over your Name in the top right corner and select 'My Workflows' to open the 'My Workflows' page. Note: 'My Workflows' will only appear for Users that have been assigned to a Level within an existing Workflow
