Many business processes require documents, or exist because of documents. For example:
- A process to claim travel expenses includes scanned copies of receipts, a company credit card statement, and a list of currency exchange rates.
- A process for considering candidates for a position includes CVs and a job description.
- A process for approving a document for publication includes the document itself and a quality checklist.
Documents can also be attached to processes to provide supplementary information. For example, a travel expense claim process could have an attached document detailing the expense policy of the company. Users have the option to download the document if required.
