When reviewign an invoice or approving an invoice there is no quick way to view the history and comments of previous workflow history. Whilst multiple clicks can see each particular comment 1 by 1 it woudl be more user friendly if a 'Workflow Fact Box" was availabel on the Right Hand Side that could be enabled to see all the history and comments with a scroll bar
Create a new built-in workspace where all workflows in the system assigned to me are available at once in MOBILE app page.
User can do invoice, expense and purchase order approvals only and they are seperate pages in mobile.
I want an one page to manage pending worklows on mobile app like workflow item assigned to me listpage in client side.
When a WF step is approved by a user and a following WF step is generating the same user as approver, it would be great if the system automatically auto-approves the current step.
This is handy if you work with dynamic assignments such as Expenditure participants.
For the Workflows for Purchase orders or purchase requisitions we would like to have the project manager to approve the document as well as the business unit manager. In the current situation this is not possible. Well: you can set it up in the steps of an approval task using the expenditure reviewers options but the Workflow returns an error.
In Dynamics 365 for finance and operations, there is an ability to setup the workflow and escalate if needed.
In the current design, the users can only select to escalate the workflow to the following options:
Hierarchy, Workflow user and users.
If users are using the Work Item queue, they would like to be able to escalate the workflow to a specific queue instead.
This option is currently not available in the application and will be nice to see as part of the standard workflow feature.
More and more workflow approvals need to be gathered from people not using D365fO on a daily basis. Of course we can send out e-mails, but people still have to log in to approve or reject workflows tasks.
It would be great if we can integrate the workflows of AX with the Microsoft Flow approval system, including the ability to share data to Flow on the entity involved (like totals of a PO, quotations details, hour journal totals and so on). In this way we can use all the richness and functionality coming to Flow with Dynamics 365 for Operations as well.
When a user submits a Free Text Invoice (through AR) or a Pending Invoice Journal (through AP) it should validate the Account & Dimension Combinations prior to submitting.
If the combinations don't validate the user should not be able to submit.
This behaviour exists for Purchase Orders and Employee Expense Reports.
Having to withdraw the Invoice, change the dimensions and resubmit through the workflow can take a lot of time, especially if the workflow is quite complex, this process could be missed if the invoice is not able to be submitted without valid dimension/account combination.
In AX 2012, it was possible to test a workflow condition using existing records. This functionality does not exist in D365FO.
Missing this functionality forces users to save the workflow and test it afterwards by submitting records to WF. And it is costing much more time.
When an item is submitted to workflow, it should be automatically validated. If the validation fails, the submittal should be terminated. If the validation generates a warning, the user should be prompted whether to continue with the submittal.
We've had several instances where an unbalanced or flawed journal has been submitted and approved only to fail when it is posted. There is also a know bug that will double book a journal. We've had this happen twice and it seems to be related to workflow items. Validation prior to submittal would potential reduce this risk.
