Submitting and Approving Purchase Orders

For larger companies where Purchase Orders must be submitted for approval before being accepted, a simple approval mechanism is provided.

Only once a Purchase Order has been approved, will you be able to generate the  associated documents.

Also, only once approved, will it affect the total number of Purchase Orders.

For a worker to approve Purchase Orders, the Purchase Orders ‘Approval Permissions’ Tab needs to be accessed. Select the checkbox next to Purchase Orders. See below and Working with roles.

When saving the Purchase Order, the associated Approval Status is set at the same time.

  • A – If you are authorized to approve Purchase Orders, your Purchase Orders are automatically approved when saved.
  • B – If you are not authorized to approve Purchase Orders, your Sales Orders are saved as ‘For Approval’. An authorized person will then approve it at a later date or time.
  • Other options in the drop-down menu includes ‘Not Approved’ and ‘Rejected’.

Once a Purchase Order has been approved its status cannot be changed.
