You can run some workflows straight from the Activity Stream.
There are five workflows available:
- Leave Approval – request a leave quickly with no paper needed. Requests are first approved by the department head(s) and then sent for processing by an HR manager. All you need to do is fill in the fields with the relevant information for your leave and notification will be sent when the leave is approved or denied.

- Business Trip – get a business trip approved and processed completely with this workflow. The approval process goes up the company hierarchy and then accounting processes the documentation. You will receive notifications as the approval moves forward.
