New Workflow Advanced Step Conditions For Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016

May 27, 2016 9:39 am Published by

New Workflow Advanced Step Conditions For Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 was released earlier this month, and one of the new features it brings is new options for advanced step conditions for Workflow 2.0. These are additional options for what action should be taken when a workflow step’s condition has not been met. There is a new menu item, and there are three options underneath it, two of which are new. In previous releases of Microsoft Dynamics GP, the workflow path would simply end.

These are the three options:

End the Workflow Path: When the instance of the step is reached in an instance of the workflow, the sequential steps following the step that do not also follow other parallel steps that do run are also not run. If there are no other parallel steps that do meet conditions for running, then the workflow is completed at that point. When the step is reached in an instance of the workflow, the step status for the instance is set to No Action Needed, and a workflow history record is created for the step.

Continue to the next step: When the step is reached in an instance of the workflow, the workflow continues to any sequential steps following the step for which the condition was not met. The step status for the instance of the step is set to No Action Needed.

Reject the Workflow: When the step is reached in an instance of the workflow, the step status for the instance of the step is set to Rejected, the workflow status for the document is set to Rejected, and all pending workflow user activity for all workflow steps (tasks and approvals) for the document are cancelled.
