Workflow Nodes

Workflow (WF) Nodes are used to control the workflow status of a transaction type life cycle e.g., service order, sale web order etc. The basic workflow nodes that you require to run the service order life cycle are:

  • Logged : recorded on the system but not yet assigned to a technician
  • Assigned : assigned to a technician, work can be scheduled
  • Complete : work complete
  • Ready : ready to ship and invoice

    It is recommended that you review the standard workflow nodes for a transaction type to assess whether or not you may want to add your own custom steps
