Job Aid for Business Administrators

Overview

This is a dynamic workflow-based system used for drafting, review, and approval of HR-RAMPS cases (previously known as Pink Folders). The system uses pre-defined case templates to identify the metadata, routing & approval options, and associated documents. Case routing can be modified at the time of initiation by the Initiator. Routing updates allow for addition and deletion of reviewers, re-ordering of review steps, and changing reviewers as well as approvers. Subsequent steps allow metadata and documents updates. Cases can be returned to the Initiator from any step in the workflow and be re-routed as needed.

Document signature template shave been setup for applicable case types. Additional signature documents can be uploaded to the case during the initiation or the review phase. Supporting documents can also be uploaded any time prior to signing.
