Why do you need workflow for Google Apps?
So, you are on Google Apps. Great! You are not alone. 5 million businesses worldwide use Google Apps.
Google Apps is a great collaboration platform. You don’t use it just for mailing people. All your admin and financial processes such as leave, travel claim and capex approvals typically run on Google mail and docs. For example, if an employee in your company wants to claim for travel, he can fill a Google spreadsheet and send a mail to his manager for approval. If his manager approves it, he can then forward that mail to your finance team for further approval. This works fine, when you are a small company.
When you reach 50 employees, this can become a real pain. New employees would not know whom to send the travel claim for approval and finance team can’t track all the claims. If you want to get a report of the travel claims made by the sales team, it is almost impossible to do it in mails and spreadsheets. Worst of all, it is not accurate. In summary, your business process can become inaccurate and hard to track and report.
