To set up a workflow and associate it to employee advances, do the following:

  1. Create a workflow in Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures.
  2. Create a business rule from MDF rules scenario for purpose 'Workflow' and base object 'Non-Recurring Payments'. Use the workflow that was created in previous step in this rule.
  3.  Go to Configure Object Definitions > object definition of Non-Recurring Payments and change the field 'Pending Data' to 'Yes'.
  4. Add the previously created business rule as 'Save Rules' to this object.
  5. Make sure that the approvers of the workflow have permissions on the pay components used in the advances. If they don't have it, they'll get an error message when approving the workflows.
