Product Update Deep Dive: Oracle Fusion ERP Workflow Configuration – June, 2020

Let’s get one thing straight. The more we put in to configuring our Fusion ERP system the more we get out.  Remember all those benefits described in the business case? Let’s start realising a few more by investing a little time to get some good return.

Fusion Release 20c sees a much easier way to configure workflow.  Changes in this release allow better configuration in two important areas; namely Payables Invoice Approval and General Ledger Journal Approval.

It’s all about data sets, with better granularity of rules to allow approvals be routed based on attribute values.  Don’t worry – this feature is auto-enabled so nothing to switch on.

Using Data Sets, you can define a mapping between the approver and relevant transaction attributes. You can download any of the available templates for the Invoice Approval workflow to use this feature.

In order to configure these data sets for example during Invoice Approval Rules set up, select “Use Dataset” as the “Start Approver” attribute.  You can then enter the approvals and upload the spreadsheet in to Fusion.
