Linking Self-Service Forms to the Inbox

To route an employee self-service form to the Inbox, the form and the inbox must be linked. Figure 15 shows the business process used when linking the form and the Inbox.

Figure 15.  Linking Employee Self-Service Form to Inbox

As an administrator, you can create an approval type to link a form to the inbox. After the approval type is configured, you can reference the approval type name within the employee self-service requestor form. For information about creating an approval type, see Applications Administration Guide.

NOTE:  The following procedure is required only for new Employee Self-Service forms, not for preconfigured forms. For more information on creating an Employee Self-Service form, see Designing Employee Self-Service Requestor Forms.

This task is a step in Process of Setting Up Employee Self-Service.
