Activate Email Approvals

Activate provides the ability for users to Approve or Decline Activate Requests using email so that Approvers can perform approvals on the go saving them time.

The approver is presented with an email detailing the request with some mailto links to Approve or Decline the request via email. These emails are automatically monitored by the Activate Server so that requests can be completed.

The Activate Email Approvals feature works with Exchange 2010 SP2 and above using Exchange Web Services and is supported from Activate V5.3.0 and above.

For more information on how the Email Approvals work or how to set this up in Activate, visit the Activate Support Portal or contact you Activate Representative.

Customer Story - The Warehouse Group Office 365 Migration

The Warehouse Group (TWG) implemented Activate in 2009 to reduce the load on their Service Desk and to automate a number of business processes. The Warehouse Group is made up of 6 companies and has approximately 13,000 team members at over 250 
locations across NZ with annual revenues of $2.92b.

TWG use most of the Activate modules and submit on average 7,500 Activate requests per month. A core part of the TWG automation is the integration of Activate with their payroll application PayGlobal for Activate to manage Identity and Access.

When The Warehouse decided to move to Office 365, they chose Activate to manage the migration and management of Office 365 Services available to end users.
