Great Plains Announces Workflow

Great News: In version 10 of Microsoft Dynamics GP (formerly Great Plains), the electronic approval of transactions has been significantly expanded. To quote from the What’s New documentation:

The workflow approval process expands existing workflow functionality provided in both Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. This feature provides a consistent, comprehensive solution to the approval of purchases, credit limit overrides, sales quotes, and batch posting for payables, receivables and general ledger transactions. Integration with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server helps to ensure an efficient, centralized administration point, and allows the use of user roles to help you efficiently manage security of the approval process. The Workflow feature allows users to approve business processes, even if they’re not Microsoft Dynamics GP users.

So you can now set up a Purchase Order (for example) and have the system send it to a supervisor for approval or, if it exceeds the supervisor’s approval level, have it go to both the supervisor and the vice-president.
