Workflow Delegates

Pretend you are going to take a real vacation, two weeks in Spain with no work laptop. You have planned and prepared for your trip but, what about all the work that is going to keep going while you are away? Work orders still need to be reviewed, assigned, and approved by someone. Purchase Orders and Invoices need to be approved so vendors can get paid. You know that giving your username and password to your co-workers so they can log in and do your work is against company policy (and no one wants to get on IT’s bad side). Lucky for you Maximo has a way to help you out so you can eat tapas in peace knowing work is being handled, it is called Workflow Delegates.

Workflow delegates allow you to select a single person to receive all records that are sent to you via workflow in Maximo. Maximo allows you to set a start and end date for your delegate to receive the records or you can just enter a start date and never select an end date.

There are some things to think about when selecting a workflow delegate.

  • Any records that were sent to them while they are acting as a delegate will stay with them even after the delegation ends.
  • For financial records if the delegate does not have sufficient limits and tolerances they will not be able to approve the record. Depending on how Maximo is configured this may result in an error message or the record may be routed to an approver with higher limits and tolerances.
  • If the delegate does not have security access to the application the record was created in then the delegate will not be able to view the record. Selecting a delegate with the equal or greater security privileges is advised.

Once you return from your trip to Spain you can log into Maximo knowing that work has continued without you.

How to set a workflow delegate:

  1. Navigate People application from Administration > Resources > People and open a Person record.maximo_workflow
  2. Populate the Workflow Delegate field and at least the Delegate From field.maximo_workflow

A3J – A Blog Life

One of our goals at A3J is to share, specifically information.  We’ve never found it very useful to keep the cards close to our chests, and we’ve always had a great admiration for those who aren’t afraid to put it all out there without regard to profit or fame.  The simple good will of getting information out that could help someone else is very uplifting.  With each blog article, we are paying it forward as a result of benefiting from other’s good will in the past.

We wrote our first blog piece in December of 2016, more than two years ago.  Hard to believe.  Like any new company with all of the players wearing too many hats, blog pieces were a scarcity, only happening sporadically and without planning.

Then one day we wrote the article that would go down in A3J lore as the lightbulb moment.  It was a little article on SSL and how to create a secure connection thereby protecting your Maximo environment.  It was an issue we had struggled with.  We knew many others who had as well.  So we wrote something on how we went about this task.  Needless to say it took off.

From then on we got serious about writing and recently we’ve created an internal initiative to make the writing more consistent.  As with any company filled with techies, the elation was vast, and their pens began to scrawl poetic words to rival Fitzgerald.  We jest.  Some came more willingly than others to the writing table, but everyone could appreciate putting out helpful content that made someone’s job somewhere a little easier.

So look for these blogs to post on the first Thursday of the month with the first one starting in April.  Many will be technically oriented but it’s all hands on deck and everyone will be writing an article.  Along with the technical articles, some will have a marketing focus or a professional services/management focus or brand new to EAM/Maximo deer in headlight focus.  Either way we hope they are helpful, insightful and maybe even occasionally entertaining.  In the meantime, check out all of our blog articles at
