Assigning and Managing Delegate Approvers

Follow

In Certify Purchasing, if you have the Approve Requisition or Approve Invoice permission, you can approve Purchase Requisitions and Invoices. This permission also enables you to assign Delegate Approvers, or other approvers in your company who can approve transactions on your behalf.

Having Delegate Approvers enables you to leave the office for any time period without delyaing time-sensitive transactions that need approval.

This article will show you, an Accounts Payable Employee, how to assign and manage Delegate Approvers.

Step 1: On your Certify homepage, click the Purchasing tab.
