A Workflow that Automatically Starts Invoice Issuance Process

Sunday, December 19, 2010
Yesterday we introduced a workflow that lets accounting remind production to start the invoice issuance process, in order to eliminate delays and omissions. ("Cross-Sectional Collaborative Workflow for Invoice Issuance") This workflow is made of human-tasks.

Another step towards eliminating delays and omissions is to automate processes via system integration. In the below workflow let's look at a way to automate "Task 0. Remind Invoice Request."

How about this: manage all orders in a Google Spreadsheet, then just prepare a script that detects each "Invoice Issuance Date" and sends a reminder the day before.
