Users are able to quickly see important information right from their Home Page using the Saved, Ready for Purchase, Pending User Action, Rejected Workflow, and Approval tiles.

10. Direct Deposit with Workflow

  • The Employee Direct Deposit window allows an employee to view and edit their direct deposit information. They can start or stop direct deposit, add or remove accounts and edit the direct deposit distribution. With workflow for Employee Direct Deposit, the direct deposit changes can be routed to the appropriate people for verification before updating the employee’s data.

11. Existing Purchase Order Warning
