Contract entry has become a very long and daunting process as our customer contracts are getting more complicated. To address this challenge, we implemented a csv file upload process to create contracts utilizing Component Interface. The new process has saved our company many hours of manual work every month. This presentation will discuss why we needed to implement the new process and show how we got it done.
- The manual entry of a contract was taking more than 30 hours of user’s time.
- We implemented a csv upload process which uses 10 different component interfaces to create contracts, add amounts and discounts, rev plans, bill plans, projects, milestones, and renewals.
- Address Challenges
- Lack of real time contracts to test in lower environments as the associated projects did not exist there.
- We had to add a lot of validations to the process to avoid process failures.
While HR Notifications can target specific employees, it can’t send a detailed message, like “Your time on July 21 is in error because X” or “You need to approve time for EE 12345.” But we can use another tool, Alert Framework, for the more detailed, targeted messages we need to send.
Join us to learn how easy it is to send these messages via email and notification!
- Attendees will learn the requirements for configuring a query to be used in Alert Framework.
- Attendees will be able to configure a notification in 5-10 minutes.
- Attendees will be able to determine the process frequency and recurrences that work best for their needs, while not overwhelming employees!
