SWIFT Update November 14, 2019

Sneak Peek: Approvals, WorkCenters, and My Favorites

When you login to SWIFT in December, you'll see new navigation and look for SWIFT. New changes include an Approvals tile for approvers, new WorkCenters in several modules, and a new way to save and use your favorites.

Approvals tile

The Approvals tile will replace the Worklist in SWIFT. It will not affect how most approval processes are completed. When approvers login to SWIFT, they will see an Approvals tile on their My Homepage. Approvers can see how many transactions that they need to review and approve. They can also see that if they have transactions in the their Actions tab.

  • Billing WorkCenter
  • Buyer WorkCenter (Purchasing modules)
  • Contract/Sourcing WorkCenter (Supplier Contract and Strategic Sourcing modules)
