What is the Process field used for?

The Process is the same as the name of the form.

Where can I see summer forms submitted into workflow prior to 2014?

Contact Solutions Center for assistance in retrieving this information.

What is the Process Reference Number?

This is the number generated on the actual form after it is submitted into workflow.

What if I don’t know my reference number?

You can use the other search fields such as “Process Initiator” and “Process” to locate the work item.

What is the “Processor” field used for?

The Processor is anyone who took action upon the form throughout the workflow routing process.  Use the lookup to search by name.

What is the Personnel Number field used for?

The Personnel Number is the assignment number for the employee.  You can use the lookup to search for the particular assignment.  The results will retrieve any work item that was processed on that particular Personnel Number (assignment number).   Note:  This will not retrieve all forms/processes for the individual.

Why is the report taking so long to run?

This may be due to the search criteria used.  Try adjusting the date fields to smaller time frame instead of 01/01/1800 to 12/31/9999. Also, fill out the Process Initiator and/or Process fields.  This will help narrow the search results and increase processing time.

Messages and Errors

  • If a form encounters an error during workflow, it appears in red.  Contact Solutions Center.
