Advanced Workflow Webinar – May 27 10am EST

Another webinar is coming up!  See my company’s web site to learn more or regster at


When a user in your organization requests a new phone, there are a few approvals that are needed:  if the request is for a regular phone, you just need the manager’s signature; if the request is for a Blackberry, then you need both your manager’s signature as well as a manager in the Blackberry group.

Once the request has been approved, a technician should be assigned to order the phone.  Once the phone comes in, the technician needs to record that the phone came in, and the Inventory needs to be adjusted based on the type of phone.

Every step in the process, the employee should be notified of the status.  When the phone has been received by the employee, they need to Accept an inventory agreement by completing a task in the workflow.
