Here we are ½ way through the year, and yet my ‘to-do’ list has kept growing. In today’s economy we have all been asked to do more with less help. This often requires us to take on more responsibility and daily tasks - which causes us more stress, longer hours and greater chances to ‘mess up’ - so to speak.
What to do? What to do? Through workflows, Deltek Vision offers us an opportunity to automate many of the repetitive tasks we have to do every day – that quite often fall through the cracks of our busy, busy days (and hopefully not too many nights).
What is a workflow?
You might ask, what is a workflow? Workflows are actions that your Deltek Vision system will carry out for you based on events that occur within specific Info Centers. An example of this is sending an email to an employee when their name is added as the Project Manager on a project.
Can I do this?
In many cases you can do a lot of the automation on your own. Deltek's intuitive design allows “non-programmers” to create workflows and actions for many repetitive task.
To do this, you will need to know a couple of things. First – where are workflows found? They are found in Configuration --> Workflows (guess that wasn’t too hard).
Next you need to understand the different options under workflows. Watch this highlight video to better understand the options under workflows, and the actions that can be performed:
So you see that using the standard workflows in Vision can help you with many repetitive tasks that are triggered from actions taken within Vision. Making these automated will free you and your staff up to pursue more productive workdays and more fun nights.
But wait you say, how do I actually set up these workflows? That's a great question! If you still are asking, what is a workflow, watch the full length video on Workflows and Stored Procedures. Learn how to set up workflows in your Deltek Vision system today!
