Workflow Updated; ‘New’ Changed to ‘Draft’
We just released an update to our mobile devices and Web Portal that will make understanding ProOnGo much more intuitive. We changed the expense state ‘New’ to ‘Draft.’ This way, our business users can have an implicit understanding that they must Submit their expenses to their manager in order to for their employer to Approve them.
Before, we would have users leave most of their expenses in the ‘New’ state, which pretty much rendered the ‘Submit’ state useless. While we couldn’t get rid of the ‘Submit’ state because there would be know understanding between an employer and employee of exactly when the employee is finished adding information to particular expense, we decided to change the ‘New’ state to ‘Draft’ so there is more of an instinctual understanding that the expense is not yet complete.
On the mobile application, we made sure to highlight this by making the ‘Save as Draft’ small text, while making the ‘Submit’ a button. Here’s a screenshot from our Android expense tracker:
Here is a graphic that illustrates this change:
