Attaching a Document to a Workflow


You can attach a document to a workflow so that others can review it or process it. This document can be one that you created or received such as a spreadsheet, word processor file, pdf file, mail message, or graphic image. Before you attach the document to your workflow, make sure it is available within E-Synergy. See Finding Your Requests, Workflows, or Documents for details.

To attach a document to a workflow, follow these steps:

  1. From your home page, click on the New Request icon on the left panel, which is to the right of the Requests link, as shown below.
