Managing Certify AP User Permissions


As a Certify AP Administrator, you have the ability to manage permissions for yourself and for other employees in your company. Permission categories include PurchasesInvoicesMiscellaneous, and Reports. All permissions can be inherited with the exception of approval permission. Permission assigned in a department applies to that department and all its child or sub-departments.

This article will show you, an Accounts Payable Administrator, how to manage company permissions.

Step 2: Click Go to AP.


Step 3: This is your Certify AP dashboard. Click the Configuration tab.


Step 4: This is the Department Configuration page. Click the plus icon next to users to expand the menu.


Step 5: Click the user you'd like to edit from the list below.


Step 6: Click the Permissions tab.
