An assortment of snacks and refreshments never fail to liven up formal functions and seminars. Queuing up to the buffet table presents opportunities to mingle and exchange ideas or simply talk about the weather. Behind all these are the trusty caterers and event organizers. They attend to individual guest preferences and make sure the event proceeds smoothly.
If you’re a food concessionaire or managing a catering business, it’s important to fulfill client orders. Catering requests need to be properly tracked and scheduled. Consider Richard, who’s the manager of an in-house caterer for a tech firm. Teams regularly hold training and seminars so it was at first a challenge to track which team would require their services and when.
Fortunately, Richard came across Form Workflow Plus on the G Suite Marketplace. This allowed him to have an efficient system of collecting orders and scheduling. It’s easy to lose requests when done via email or on a separate form. Here are the important features that helped Richard:
Seamless integration with G Suite apps
Form Workflow Plus works with native G Suite apps. Richard simply set up a Google Form then collected these responses on a Google Sheet. With Form Workflow Plus, set up took only a few minutes.
The add-on also had the flexibility to specify several reviewers. This proved useful for when some of the reviewers are not around to approve requests and ensure continuity.
Form Workflow Plus is available for a 14-day free trial here.
Unlimited reviewers and conditional approvals
Automating their order taking workflow was a perfect decision for Richard. Working with the add-on allowed him to easily add approval steps, include or remove reviewers, and set up conditional approvals. These features allowed the add-on to meet their use cases.
Richard has even set up their staff leave requests and purchase order workflows via the add-on!
Web app for overseeing requests, managing billing, and adding users
Form Workflow Plus includes a web application accessible here. It provides account owners and admins a dashboard for managing workflows as well as requests. It’s also a one-stop solution for managing billing, updating credit card details for auto-renewal, and upgrading subscription.
Easily delegate roles and add/remove users via the included user management tool.
Accessible Support and extensive Help Center
For simple queries on setting up workflows to using advanced features, Richard found answers on the Form Workflow Plus Help Center. This was where he came across the idea of using conditional approvals for budget workflows.
For questions not covered by the Help Center, queries can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Better yet, a demo can be scheduled here:
