Workflows 1 – Introduction & How to Create New Workflow

Workflows move the transactions from one status to another. Learn how to create them in Flowis.

Workflows determine the flow of the transaction. In other words, what is needed to move the Transaction to the next step, who can do it, and how. For example, in Workflows, we can set up that after the Invoice is received, it automatically goes to validation Status, or that approver can approve the invoice and send it to the next step, and so on.

Accessing Workflows

After accessing Workflows from the left menu, you can see various options. On the top of the screen, you will see filter which will help you to always find the Workflow you need to work with. The filter contains all of the available fields, you can show them all by clicking on “Advanced search” button. Below the filter you can see the list of created Workflows with various buttons and functions:
