The item name “route (From)” is set to <routeFrom> input in the “route” item 6 of the transportation expense adjustment input screen of FIG.
In the item name “route (To)”, <routeTo> input in “route” of item 6 on the transportation expense adjustment input screen of FIG. 10 is set.
As the item name “amount”, the value input in the “amount” item 7 of the transportation expense settlement input screen of FIG. 10 is set.
In the item name “remarks”, the value input in the “remarks” item 8 of the transportation expense adjustment input screen of FIG. 10 is set.

  In the item name “approver”, the value input in “approver” of item 9 on the transportation expense adjustment input screen of FIG. 10 is set. As described above, when the value of the approver 9 is not specified by the user and the organization data is managed by the workflow server of the management server 100, it corresponds to the user's boss when the user makes an application. A person who performs the process may be automatically assigned to the approver.

The item name “issuer section” is set to the value input in the “issuer” item 10 of the transportation expense adjustment input screen of FIG. As described above, when the value of the issuer section is not specified by the user and the section code is managed by the workflow server of the management server 100, when the user makes an application, A section code may be automatically assigned.
The item name “burden section” is set to the value input in “burden section” of item 11 on the transportation expense adjustment input screen of FIG.

  The item name “user ID” is registered as a user ID (user identification information) as a login ID when logging into the transportation expense settlement workflow. As described above, this user ID is assumed to manage logged-in user identification information when session management is performed on the workflow server. In addition, the present invention is not limited to this, and a new user ID input item may be prepared on the transportation expense adjustment input screen (FIG. 10), and management may be performed using the user ID input via this screen.

The item name “user name” is a user name corresponding to the user ID. A correspondence table (not shown) between user IDs and user names is stored in the external memory 211 in advance. As another method, the user name is inquired to the authentication server having the correspondence table between the user ID and the user name by using the user ID as a key. It may be set.
The item name “update date and time” sets a time stamp when the registration button is pressed on the transportation expense adjustment input screen.

  The item name “scan reservation job ID” sets the job ID numbered in the scan reservation information (scan ticket) creation process when the registration button is pressed on the transportation expense adjustment input screen.

  The item name “scan reservation job name” sets the job name created in the scan reservation information (scan ticket) creation process when the registration button is pressed on the transportation expense adjustment input screen. The setting content may be, for example, a job name “transportation receipt (yyymmdd-date serial number)”. The job names set here are displayed in a list as a job list on the operation unit of the multifunction peripheral 300 as will be described later.

  The item name “scan flag” is a flag for setting a scan state. When the scan is executed and the PDF file as the scan result is FTP-transmitted and stored in the management server 100, the flag is set to “1”. In the scan wait state, the flag is “0”.

  In the item name “scan file name”, the file name of the scan result is set. When a scan is executed and a PDF file exists by FTP but is transmitted and stored in the management server 100, the file name is set. This file name is given by the MFP 300, but in this embodiment, the file name is “scan reservation job ID + time stamp.pdf”.

  Returning to the flowchart of FIG. In step S406, input of application information is accepted via the transportation expense adjustment input screen of FIG. In step S407, it is determined whether the registration button 12 has been pressed and an application instruction has been accepted. If it is determined that the application instruction has been received, the application is made by transmitting to the management server 100 application content information indicating the content of the application information input via the transportation expense adjustment input screen in step S408. On the other hand, if an application instruction has not been received, the application information input step in step S406 is repeated. Also, when the clear button is pressed in step S407, the input setting value is cleared and the process returns to step S406 in the same manner.

  In step S409, the management server 100 receives application content information from the client terminal 400, and performs application processing and scan ticket generation processing in step S410. Details of the application process and the scan ticket generation process will be described later with reference to the flowchart of FIG. When the scan ticket generation process is performed, the scan process is executed in the multifunction peripheral 300 in step S411. This scanning process will be described later with reference to the flowchart of FIG.

  FIG. 5 is a flowchart for explaining an example of application processing and scan ticket generation processing based on the application contents in the management server 100 (ticket server / workflow server). Note that steps S501 to S507 are executed by the CPU 201 of the management server 100.

  In step S <b> 501, the management server 100 (workflow server) acquires application content information received from the client terminal 400 and stored in the external memory 211. In step S502, it is determined whether or not an application for a receipt attached to the receipt is necessary, that is, whether or not the selected value of the item “transportation” in the application content information is “1: train / bus”. to decide. If the selected value of the item “transportation” is “1: train / bus”, it is determined that the application for the receipt attached is not necessary, and the selected value of the item “transportation” is “1: train”.・ If it is other than “Bus”, it will be judged that an application for an attached document of the receipt is required. For this determination, the management server 100 is provided with a correspondence table that indicates which selection value of the item of “transportation” should be applied for a receipt attached to the receipt. Or it can be realized by describing it in this program. That is, in this step, it is determined whether or not an image reading process is necessary in the multi-function apparatus 300 according to the application content information applied from the client terminal 400 (determination means).

  If it is determined in step S502 that the attached document is unnecessary, the process proceeds to step S503, the application content information (application file) is registered as a new workflow slip, and the workflow control process proceeds to the next activity. Do. The details of this workflow control processing are known techniques, and thus detailed description thereof is omitted.

  On the other hand, if it is determined in step S502 that an attached document is necessary, a scan ticket generation instruction is output in order to cause the MFP 300 to perform image reading processing. In step S505, a scan ticket is generated. Details of the scan ticket generation processing will be described later with reference to FIG. If the management server 100 is configured to be divided into a workflow server and a ticket server (scan ticket server), the workflow server transmits a scan ticket generation command to the ticket server in step S504. , Request the generation of a scan ticket (generation request means). Here, when the management server 100 is not configured as a workflow server and a ticket server (scan ticket server) and is realized as an integrated service, the output of the scan ticket generation command is unnecessary, and the process proceeds to step S505. It is also possible to skip the processing.

  In step S506, the application content information applied from the client terminal 400 and the scan ticket ID (ticket identification information) generated in step S505 are associated (associated) and stored in the external memory 211. In step S507, the application content information (application file) is registered as a new workflow slip. At this time, since necessary information (attached documents) is not prepared, the workflow control cannot proceed to the next activity.

  FIG. 6 is a flowchart showing a specific example of scan ticket generation processing in the management server 100 (ticket server / workflow server). Note that steps S601 to S606 are executed by the CPU 201 of the management server 100.

  In step S601, the ticket server of the management server 100 receives a scan ticket generation command from the workflow server. As described above, when the functions of the ticket server and the workflow server are realized by the same management server 100, transmission / reception of the scan ticket generation command can be omitted.

  In step S602, a user name is acquired. This “user name” is a user name corresponding to the user ID of the user who has logged into the workflow. Since the correspondence table (not shown) between the user ID and the user name is stored in advance in the external memory 211 of the management server 100, the user name can be acquired by receiving the user ID from the workflow server. Further, when the correspondence table is held on the workflow server side, the user name itself may be transmitted for acquisition. As another method, a user name may be inquired to an authentication server having a user ID / user name correspondence table using the user ID as a key, and the user name may be acquired as a response.

  In step S603, scan setting information is acquired from the external memory 211. The scan setting information is stored in advance in the external memory 211. In the scan setting information, instruction contents for executing image reading by the multi-function apparatus 300 as an image processing apparatus are defined. The contents of this instruction include, for example, the reading resolution of the image reading mechanism (scanner unit 314) of the multi-function apparatus 300, color / monochrome designation, and read original size. The scan setting information further includes an FTP transmission path, which is a transmission destination when the scanned image file is transmitted by FTP. This FTP transmission path is a file path for storing as an attached document in the travel expense settlement slip job applied in the workflow server, and the FTP transmission path is a file management area prepared in the external memory 211 in the workflow server. It is.

  In step S604, the management server 100 (ticket server) issues a scan ticket ID (scan reservation job ID). This scan ticket ID is assigned when an application for payment of transportation expenses is made from the client terminal to the management server 100 (workflow server). The scan ticket ID (scan reservation job ID) is numbered as “200092100001” (the 0001th ID numbered on December 10, 2009) using, for example, the serial number of yyyymmdd-date. Therefore, the process in the ticket server of the management server 100 in step S604 corresponds to a process of acquiring a scan ticket ID (ticket identification information) numbered from the workflow server.

In step S605, a scan ticket is generated using the information acquired in the above process. An example of the data structure of the scan ticket will be described with reference to FIG.
FIG. 13 is a diagram illustrating an example of a data configuration of a scan ticket generated by the ticket server.
The item “user ID” corresponds to the user ID of the application file managed in FIG. 12, and is acquired and set in step S601.

  The item “scan reservation job ID” corresponds to the “scan reservation job ID” managed in FIG. 12, and this ID is assigned by the workflow server. The ticket server acquires the ID in step S604, It is set when a scan ticket is generated in step S605.

  The item “scan reservation job name” corresponds to the “scan reservation job name” managed in FIG. 12, and this job name is generated by the workflow server. In step S605, the ticket server obtains the scan ticket. It is set in the scan ticket when it is generated.

  The item “confidential flag” is a workflow server that determines the importance of a document to be read in accordance with the application details applied from the client terminal 400, and “1: general” “2: secret” according to the determination result. "3: Top Secret" is assigned one of the confidential flags. The confidential flag set here is displayed following the job name when the job list is displayed in a list on the display unit of the multifunction machine 300 described later. Regarding the determination of the importance of the document, for example, if the application content in the workflow is “transportation expense adjustment”, it becomes “1: general”, and if the image read in the workflow handling confidential information is “2: It will be set as “secret” or “3: top secret”. In the workflow server, a confidential correspondence table (not shown) for associating the application contents with the confidential flag is held in the external memory 211, and the value of the confidential flag can be set by searching the table. Then, the ticket server sets the value of the confidential flag acquired from the workflow server in the scan ticket.

  The item “job execution time” is an item in which the date and time when the scan reservation is made is set. Specifically, the time requested from the workflow server to the ticket server is set. Further, when the service is realized by one service of the management server 110, a time when an application for transportation expense adjustment is made from the client terminal 400 may be set.

  The item “FTP transmission path” is a file path of a transmission destination when the scanned image file is FTP-transmitted. This FTP transmission path is a file path for storing as an attached document in the travel expense settlement slip job applied in the workflow server, and the FTP transmission path is a file management area prepared in the external memory 211 in the workflow server. It is.

  The item name “scan flag” corresponds to the “scan flag” managed in FIG. 12, and is a flag for setting the scan state. When the scan is executed and the PDF file as the scan result is FTP-transmitted and stored in the management server 100, the flag is set to “1”. In the scan wait state, the flag is “0”.

The item name “scan file name” corresponds to the “scan file name” managed in FIG. 12, and the file name of the scan result is set. When a scan is executed and a PDF file exists by FTP but is transmitted and stored in the management server 100, the file name is set. This file name is given by the MFP 300, but in this embodiment, the file name is “scan reservation job ID + time stamp.pdf”.
With the data configuration described above, a scan ticket is generated by the ticket server in step S605.

  In step S606, the ticket server of the management server 100 registers the scan ticket generated in step S605 in the external memory 211 and ends the process. At this time, the scan setting information acquired in step S603 is registered in the scan ticket having the data structure generated in step S605. In this data structure, the scan setting information is continuously provided after the scan file name item.

  As described above, when it is determined that the multifunction device 300 needs to perform image reading processing based on the application contents requested from the client terminal 100, the management server 100 executes image reading by the multifunction device 300. A scan ticket in which the content of instructions for doing so is defined is generated (scan ticket generating means).

  FIG. 7 is a flowchart illustrating an example of a processing procedure for executing scan processing from login processing in the management server 100 and the multifunction peripheral 300. Note that steps S701, S702, S705 to S709, and S713 to S716 are executed by the CPU 301 or the image processing unit 317 of the MFP 300, and steps S703, S704, S710 to S712, and S717 to S720 are executed by the CPU 201 of the management server 100. Execute.

  In step S <b> 710, the MFP 300 is a process of accepting a login request from a user who is an operator, making an authentication request to the authentication server 200, and allowing the use of the MFP 300 as a successful login when authenticated. In a specific example, when the user holds the IC card over the card reader 319, the card ID is read from the IC card, and an authentication request is issued to the authentication server 200 using the card ID. The authentication server 200 stores a correspondence table between user IDs and card IDs, and determines whether a user ID corresponding to the card ID requested to be authenticated from the multi-function peripheral 300 is registered. If the user ID is not registered, an authentication failure response is made.

  In step S702, the user ID that has been successfully authenticated is stored in the HDD 304, and a scan ticket list request is made to the management server 100 using the user ID. This list request includes a user ID. Further, in the MFP 300, the logged-in user ID is stored in the HDD 304 until the user logs out, and the logged-in user is grasped.

  In step S <b> 703, the management server 100 receives the scan ticket list request transmitted from the MFP 300 and identifies the scan ticket corresponding to the user ID included in the list request. Then, list information including the scan ticket ID (scan reservation job ID) and the scan reservation job name of the specified scan ticket is generated and acquired.

  In step S704, the generated scan ticket list information is transmitted to the requesting multifunction peripheral 300. That is, in response to a list request from the multifunction device 300, the scan device list information including the ticket identification information (scan ticket ID) for specifying the scan ticket generated by the scan ticket generation unit is stored in the multifunction device 300. Send (list sending means).

  In step S705, the MFP 300 receives the scan ticket list information from the management server 100, and displays the received scan ticket list information on the display unit (the operation unit 308 because it is a touch panel) in step S706. An example of the operation screen displayed here is shown in FIG.

  FIG. 14 is a diagram illustrating an example of a display screen after user login displayed on the multifunction machine 300. A display screen 1401 is a display screen that is first displayed when the user logs in the multifunction peripheral 300.

  In addition to the scan reservation display area and the print reservation display area, simple operation buttons are provided on this display screen as a My Menu. When the transition button 1402 to the scan screen is pressed, the list of scan reservation jobs displayed in the scan reservation display area is enlarged and displayed (FIG. 15).

  A scan button 1403 in the display area of the My Menu is an image reading start button in the normal multifunction device 300. When this button 1403 is pressed, the image reading mechanism (scanner unit 314) is driven and the document is scanned. Image reading processing of the document placed on the table is performed. Since this normal image reading process is not a process closely related to the main part of the present invention, a detailed description thereof will be omitted.

  FIG. 15 is a view showing an example of a scan confirmation screen that is displayed on the multifunction peripheral 300 and displays a list of scan reservation jobs, and when a scan instruction based on a scan ticket is issued.

  In 1501, the scan reservation job name included in the list information transmitted from the management server 100 is displayed in the "document name" column. Further, the value of the confidential flag is displayed in the “confidential” column, and the job execution time value of the scan ticket is displayed in the “reserved date / time” column. It should be noted that the value displayed in this list is that at least this “document name” is displayed because the user can recognize that the image reading process is necessary if the scan reservation job name is displayed in the “document name” column. It will be.

  The list acquisition button 1502 is an instruction unit for requesting acquisition of scan reservation job list information from the management server 100 again. After logging in, if a new workflow slip is registered in the management server 100 and a scan ticket is issued for a job that requires document attachment, it will not be displayed unless this list acquisition button is pressed. Has been.

  As described above, in the scan ticket list display process in step S706, the scan job list information transmitted from the management server 100 in response to a request to the management server 100 is used to display the display unit (the operation unit 308 having a touch panel function). A list of scan jobs is displayed (display control means).

  In step S707, the selection of a document name to be subjected to image reading processing is accepted by the user from the scan ticket list display operation screen (touch panel) displayed in FIG. Specifically, when an individual document name portion is touched on an operation screen (FIG. 15) having a touch panel function, selection of a document name for image reading processing is accepted.

  That is, selection of a scan job to be executed and an execution instruction can be received from the list of scan jobs displayed on the display unit (user operation reception means).

  In step S708, when the document name is selected, the operation screen shown in FIG. 16 is displayed, and it is determined whether a scan instruction is accepted. The operation screen of FIG. 16 is displayed when an arbitrary document name is selected on the operation screen of FIG. The display example of FIG. 16 shows an example in which a dialog asking whether execution is possible is displayed when the first document 1601 is selected. Here, when an OK button 1602 is pressed, it is determined that a scan instruction has been accepted.

  When the scan instruction is accepted, a scan request including the scan ticket ID (ticket identification information) selected by the scan instruction is transmitted to the management server 100 in step S709. Specifically, this scan request can also be referred to as an acquisition request for having the scan ticket itself transmitted from the management server 100 to the MFP 300. That is, in this process, a scan ticket acquisition request including ticket identification information for identifying a scan ticket corresponding to a scan job received by the operation unit (user operation receiving means) of the touch panel is transmitted to the management server 110 (scan ticket acquisition). Request means).

  In step S710, the management server 110 receives a scan request from the multifunction device 300, reads a scan ticket ID included in the received scan request, and identifies a corresponding scan ticket. Then, scan setting information corresponding to the specified scan ticket is acquired. The scan setting information here is information in which the instruction content for executing image reading in the multi-function apparatus 300 is defined. The scan setting information is generated / obtained in step S603 and the scan ticket generated in step S605. Is registered in step S606. The scan setting information is stored in the scan ticket data structure, but is stored in association with (linked to) the scan ticket, and the scan setting information portion is collectively referred to as a scan ticket. To.

  In step S <b> 712, a scan command including scan setting information is transmitted to the multifunction device 300. This scan command may be transmitted as a scan ticket file, or may be in a command format other than a file format, such as a remote scan command. In any case, the MFP includes scan setting information, an FTP transmission destination path, and a scan instruction. Regardless of the format, the content to be transmitted is referred to as a scan ticket for convenience. Call. That is, the scan ticket that is actually transmitted from the management server 100 to the MFP 300 includes at least the scan setting information, the FTP transmission destination path, and the scan instruction. All of the scan tickets shown in FIG. It is not necessary to have the data structure.

  As described above, in response to the scan ticket acquisition request including the ticket identification information from the multifunction peripheral 300, the instruction content identified by the ticket identification information included in the scan ticket acquisition request is defined from a plurality of generated scan tickets. The specified scan ticket can be identified and transmitted to the multifunction device 300 (step S712: ticket transmission means).

  In step S713, the MFP 300 receives the scan ticket (scan command) from the management server 100, and in step S714, registers the scan setting information included in the scan ticket (scan command) in the RAM 302. In step S715, the scan setting information registered in the RAM 302 is reflected as image reading settings by the image processing unit 317, and the scanner unit 314 is driven to execute image reading processing.

  In step S716, the read image is converted into a transmission file format (in this embodiment, a PDF file format) by the image processing unit 317, and the scan ticket ID is stored as attribute information. It transmits to the management server 100. The scan ticket ID may be written in the storage area of the attribute information of the image file. Alternatively, an XML file may be prepared separately and the image file and the XML file (attribute information) may be transmitted as separate files. Further, as described above, the scan file name is generated as “job ID + time stamp.pdf” in the transmitted image file.

As described above, the MFP 300 uses the scan ticket (or a part thereof) transmitted from the management server 100 to perform the image reading process using the image reading mechanism, and designates the obtained image with the scan ticket. Can be transmitted to the management server that is the FTP transmission destination (image processing means).
In step S717, the management server 100 receives the scanned image file and attribute information from the multi-function device 300 (image receiving means).

  In step S718, application content information corresponding to the received image file is specified. Specifically, the application content information stored in the external memory 211 of the workflow server of the management server 100 is searched using the scan ticket ID (scan reservation job ID) described in the attribute information of the image file as a search condition. . As described above, in step S506, the application content information applied from the client terminal 400 and the ID (ticket identification information) of the scan ticket generated in step S505 are associated (associated) in the external memory 211. Since it is stored, it can be searched.

  In step S719, the management server 100 registers the specified application content information and the received image file in association with each other. In the workflow system, a process for associating a slip (job) that is sequentially processed in the workflow and an attached file that is registered (uploaded) in association with the slip is a known technique, and thus detailed description thereof is omitted. .

  That is, the management server 100 can store the received image in association with the application content information applied from the client terminal 400 using the ticket identification information of the scan ticket used in the image reading process (memory). means).

  If the image file scanned in step S719 can be stored in association with the application content information, the workflow server of the management server 100 can prepare an attached document necessary for the application content information. Processing of the workflow system slip (job) can proceed to the next approval activity. When the process proceeds to the approval activity, the process is transferred to the supervisor who is the approver, and the approval / disapproval is specified.

In step S720, when the image file can be registered in association with the application content information, the management server 100 deletes the scan ticket corresponding to the scan ticket ID of the registered image file and ends the process.

  FIG. 8 is a flowchart illustrating an example of a processing procedure for confirming and displaying the applied slip on the workflow server of the management server 100 and the client terminal 400. Note that steps S801 and S805 to S807 are executed by the CPU 201 of the client terminal 400, and steps S802 to S804 and S808 are executed by the CPU 201 of the management server 100.

  In step S <b> 801, the client terminal 400 requests unapproved application information from the workflow server of the management server 100. Specifically, it corresponds to a request for displaying the transportation expense adjustment list screen of FIG. 17 by pressing the transportation expense adjustment list button 901 in the main menu of FIG.

  In step S802, the workflow server of the management server 100 receives an unapproved application information request, and acquires unapproved application information from the external memory 211 in step S803. Here, the unapproved application information is a slip that has not been approved by the supervisor who is the approver, among the slips (jobs) applied from the client terminal 400. As described in step S502 in FIG. 5, it is determined whether the application requires an attached document such as a receipt. If the application does not require an attached document, the approver's approval activity is processed. proceeding. Even if the application requires an attached document such as a receipt, when the attachment of the attached document is completed in step S719, the process proceeds to the approver's approval activity. In this way, even if the process proceeds to the next approval activity, a slip that is not approved by the approver is acquired. Here, the screen information of the display screen of the applied information can be generated in response to a request for acquiring the applied information including the user identification information from the client terminal 400 (applied screen information generating means).

  In step S804, the acquired unapproved application information list information is transmitted to the client terminal 400. Here, the screen information (HTML format file) of the transportation expense adjustment list screen of FIG. 17 is sent.

  Then, the application content information (1702 and 1703 in FIG. 17) that requires an image reading process in the MFP 300 can be identified whether the image obtained by the image reading process has been registered. Screen information can be generated. In the example of FIG. 17, the PDF button is clearly displayed as 1703 if the image obtained by the image reading process has been registered, and 1702 if the image obtained by the image reading process has not been registered. In addition, the PDF button is displayed in gray.
