Workflow without e-mail

Posted on by 1,353

Is it possible to configure GP's workflow engine without e-mail?  I have a site that has had some challenges when it comes to connecting GP to e-mail which has gone through some extensive troubleshooting.  This is GP2016R2.

Please advise.  Look forward to a response.

    RE: Workflow without e-mail

    Hi JG, 

    Yes, it is possible to use workflow within GP without needing to enable the email functionality. Email is only required for workflow if you want users to be able to approve/reject/delegate workflows via the email. The process does require Web Services to be installed as well. Workflow doesn't rely on email functionality to work; however, emails do make the process a bit more streamlined.

    If you don't have email or Web Services setup, then you can still log into GP and approve/reject/delegate workflows from the desktop client. Some people use the Web Client version of GP specifically for this reason. 

    Hope that helps! 

    -Jake G.
