How do I monitor budget requests?

See BudgetRequests.com for our latest and greatest!

The Budget Workflow App is only limited by the ability of your SharePoint 2013 installation to handle a volume of user requests. Therefore it is easy to envision hundreds, thousands, or hundreds of thousands of budget requests being active at any time.

  • The primary monitoring tools are the Summary or Drill-Down Reports. The Budget Workflow Manager will be available December 2015, and will provide enhanced monitoring capabilities.
  • The Budget Requests library contains the budget requests with their associated metadata, tasks, workflows, and workflow history.
  • The Exception Log list allows you to monitor any application errors.
  • Additional information is available using the standard SharePoint 2013 tools.
