Maconomy 2.5 released in November 2019, brought even more enhancements to the powerful approval workflow engine. Maconomy’s extensive approval hierarchy framework provides a set of rules to determine who can approve expense sheets, purchase orders, vendor invoices and other entries. Maconomy’s approval hierarchy and access control are tightly interconnected to provide you the confidence and control you need to securely manage business operations. Super users or system administrators manage approvals in one central place - the Approval Setup Workspace.
As we reviewed in part one of this blog post series, Maconomy’s background tasks can perform repetitive or scheduled actions, which a user would typically perform manually. In this blog post, we will look at a background task that automatically submits all created, but not submitted time sheets on Friday night, ready for approval by our supervisors on Monday morning.
With Deltek Maconomy’s Business Process Automation, background tasks allow you to automate certain actions on a schedule, defined by the user. This is the first blog post in a series and, overviews the creation of a Background Task Generator with a basic example to introduce the key concepts. Stay tuned for the second post in which we review an automation example and the third post which examines a more detailed configuration involving the execution of multiple actions (Sub Tasks) in sequence.
Powered by the background task functionality, Maconomy’s Business Process Automation, or BPA, enables clients to automate many manual tasks across their companies; saving employees precious time and the company money.
