    Title:
    Is there a notification workflow for unposted journals?
    Content:

    Client wants to know is there an auto feature within cloud that will allow us to notify the appropriate supervisorof unposted journals. I know there is journal approval but what that does is only manually approve journals, not necessarily posting them. Is there a way we can send notifications for unposted journals?

      You can do a BIP report and schedule it to be run on regular basis. Report can be sent by email in HTML format to a needed person using bursting functionality. Layout of the notification can be done easily using Interactive report designer or word template.

      Hello, would suggest to create a custom infolet in home page. It's very direct and useful to check.

      We have scheduled OTBI reports to run automatically each morning and send an email to a supervisor. We can also use the custom Tile. There are videos that describe how to create a Tile that displays this kind of information.

      Yes Journal Approval can be configured in many ways and can notify the 
      appropriate supervisor of unposted journals. It also allows them to post 
      them or you can setup auto post. Many options.
