PIR Workflow

PIR workflow

Workflows allow administrators to control the way PIRs are processed. Using the PIR Status Customization, administrators can set:

  • The sequence of PIR Statuses for each PIR Type.
  • The User Groups or User Roles that have the permission to update each PIR Status.

For instance, a PIR Type might have a workflow based on the PIR Statuses: Draft > Active > Complete. All User Roles might have permission to change the PIR Status from Draft to Active (using the Status drop-down menu) but only a Manager User Role might have permission to change the PIR Status from Active to Complete. This workflow would allow managers to check each PIR before it is completed.

If the Enable Post Implementation Review Item Workflow checkbox is selected in PIR Status Customization, users can:

  1. Go to PIR > Manager.
  2. Open a PIR by clicking one in the left-hand panel.
  3. Click Show Workflow Show Workflow button PIR to view the PIR’s workflow path and see who initiated each status update.
