Start a Request by starting a Process.

Start a Request

Follow these steps to start a Request:

  1. Ensure that you are logged on to ProcessMaker.

  2. Click +Request from the top options bar. This button is always available.

    The New Request screen displays. This screen displays Processes for which you are authorized to start new Requests. Below is the New Request screen with Processes from which a Request can be started. Processes can be organized into Categories within your organization to make it easier for people in your organization to locate from which Process to start a Request. For example, Processes for Finance, Human Resources, and Purchasing departments can be organized into their own Categories.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • Click the Start button to start a Request for the selected Process. A Request is one occurrence of a Process.

    • From the Search field, enter text to filter the list of Processes, and then click the Start button to start a Request for the selected Process.

    A Request starts for the Process you selected.

If there are no active Processes or you are not authorized to start a Request for a Process, the following message displays: Please visit the Processes page and click on +Process to get started.

After the Request starts, that Request displays in the My Requests page.
