Manually starting a workflow

This procedure shows how to start a workflow manually.

If you do not have rules that automatically start approval workflows, or if an invoice does not trigger any rules, you must start the workflow manually.

To start a workflow:
  1. Select a document with the status "Waiting for user assignment" or "Document pending approval," and click Start. The document view appears, so you can inspect the document, add comments or perform other actions.
  2. Click Assign User/Start Workflow and use the dialog that appears to assign a user to the workflow.
    Tip You can also send invoices to a workflow during verification from the context menu of the OK button (requires the Start workflow from Verification privilege).
