Design of the Approval Workflow Engine (AWE)
•
•
•
•
Campuses provided feedback
The design was changed based on campus
feedback
New design will provide more flexibility for the
campuses
Each UC Business Unit (Campus/Medical Center)
will be able to select which route and final approver
they wish to use for each custom form/transaction
type (vary by Business Unit)
4
Entering HR/AP Transactions
• Campuses will not be entering data directly into PeopleSoft
• Custom front-end forms and AWE solution has been developed to
accommodate UC requirements and to update data in PeopleSoft, and
address routing and approval issues
• Approval Workflow Engine (AWE), will allow locations to route HR/AP
transactions for approval prior to submission to the UCPath Center
• AWE will allow routing by each Employee Class in PeopleSoft
Initiator

5
Set up Considerations
•
The route and final approver for each custom form cannot vary within a single
Business Unit (Campus/Medical Center)
•
Approvers do not need to be in the same department to be designated as a
department Approver
•
An Employee must have been given the security role (e.g. Approver 1) in PS
before they can be added to the routing table
•
Approvers are able to initiate transactions as well as approve
•
An approver is required within the routing table at the last step
– AWE functionality will skip blank non-final levels
– AWE will give an error if no approvers are found at the final approver level for the
transaction
•
Comments will be required for any transactions that are pushed back or denied
6
Campus Approval Level/Final Stop
Set Up for Custom Forms
• UCSB will need to determine the final stop/approver for each type of transaction
• Once the final stop/approver approves the transaction the transaction is routed to
the UCPath Center for input into PeopleSoft
Final Stop Example
Data Change Approver 1
Pay Rate Change Approver 3
Transfer Approver 2
7
Roles within AWE
• Levels of defined approval workflow roles include:
–
–
–
–
–
Initiator
Approver 1
Approver 2
Approver 3
SMG Approver
– Location Administrator (not an approval role)
• Each approval level can have multiple approvers designated to that level
for a specific department
• Allow for defined, as well as ad-hoc Reviewers and Approvers
• Each Campus (Business Unit) will work with their departments to
establish and maintain a table that defines the specific Approver(s) for
each Employee Class (e.g. Career, Limited, Academic-Faculty)
8
Capabilities of Approvers
•
Once roles have been designated, Initiators and Approvers will be able to:
– Execute all Workflow Approval actions
– Initiate and/or Approve actions for employees in the designated department/Employee
Class
•
Edit transactions per the agreed upon fields
– The forms will not reflect what specifically was edited or by whom, although those
items will be tracked in an audit table
– Not all fields will be editable
• As determined by the Practice Board, any key fields (i.e. employee id, record number and
action) and fields related to dollar amounts will not be editable
•
Approve/route to the next level approver, ad-hoc reviewer or ad-hoc approver
•
Push back to the Initiator
– Comments are required
•
Deny the transaction
– Comments are required
9
Set Up for Each Department and Approvers
10
Notification Setup
During the process of a transaction, a number of notifications will be sent to the
users involved in the transaction:
•
When the transaction is submitted, an email notification will be sent to all approvers selected in the table at the first
level for that employee class. An email will be sent to all approvers selected who have the "Email?" flag on the
Department Approver setup page turned on.
•
When the transaction is approved at a non-final level, an email notification will be sent to all approvers selected at the
next level. If the transaction has reached the UC Path level, no approvers will receive an email.
•
When the transaction receives final approval, an email notification will be sent to the initiator. (This is the point at
which the data is entered into the delivered PS tables via a CI)
•
When the transaction is denied, an email notification will be sent to the initiator and any approvers who approved the
transaction prior to its ultimate denial (a comment is required).
•
When the transaction is pushed back, an email notification will be sent to the approver selected at the level to which
the transaction has been pushed back.
•
When a transaction has been waiting at any level for more than 3 days, an email notification will be sent to the
initiator, the current approvers, and the Administrator list.

Termination
All Terminations transactions will be routed and
approved the same way regardless of the reason

Additional Pay
Additional compensation is any cash compensation
above a University employee’s regular, base
compensation.
•
Recurring payments that are paid over multiple,
consecutive, pay periods (i.e. Stipend for 6

Summer Salary).
