Work with assignments from Workflow

Assignments that are assigned to you from the Workflow module, are displayed with orange thumbnails in the Assignments view. An assignment can contain multiple budgets to work on.

NOTE: If the assignment has a start date in the future, you will see the start date on the assignment card. When you open the assignment, the budgets will be grayed-out until the start date is reached.

To open the assignment and work on the budget:

  1. Click Assignments.
  2. Click  on the assignment (orange) you want to open.
  3. Click  on the budget template you want to open and edit.
  4. (if applicable) If the assignment status is Create assignments:
    1. Click  on the budget (yellow) you want to open and edit.
    2. Select the relevant parameters. If the parameter fields are gray, the person who created the assignment has already defined these parameters. They cannot be changed.
    3. Click Create assignments in the top right corner. The assignment status is now New.
    4. Click  on the budget (blue) you want to open and edit.
      NOTE: For assignments with Let the user decide parameters, you can generate as many budget assignments as you need.
  5. Click Run to update the spreadsheet with updated data.
  6. Edit the budget. See Edit budget data for more information about the available editing options.
  7. Click Save data to save your work to the database.
