How can I copy workflow settings to another Organisation? (QuickBooks Online)
ApprovalMax supports a tool that allows to copy a workflow setup between different workflow types in the same Organisation and between different Organisations under the same account. The Copy Workflow tool helps to reduce the time needed for the workflow setup and allows to roll out additional Organisations/workflows faster.
Which workflows can be copied?
- Different workflow types in the same Organisation
Please note: the target Organisation should not be disconnected from the accounting system, or retired. These Organisations will not be displayed as available options.
How to copy a workflow to multiple other workflows
This feature is available in beta. If you want to give it a try, please contact support. In the main menu, select the Organisation of the workflow you want to copy and open Approval Workflows in the Workflows and Settings section:
- Open the original workflow:
- Click on the three-dot icon and select “Copy workflow”:
- Under the "Copy to multiple workflow" tab, select the target Organisation and the target workflow(s), and click on DONE:
It is also possible to copy the workflow’s settings by ticking the checkbox “Copy workflow settings”, however only settings available in both workflows will be copied.
- With the copying completed, a pop-up is displayed:
Who can copy a workflow to another workflow?
Only Administrators/Account Owners can copy workflows.
If workflow values differ from one Organisation
to another, they will be ignored during the copying.
Please note: the whole workflow setup gets copied from the original workflow to the target workflow and overwrites it. These changes cannot be revoked. Please note: the Auto-approval step does not get copied due to security reasons (because if some parameters are omitted during the copying, it could lead to all/some requests getting approved automatically).
