One way to get additional approval for a purchase requisition is to assign the cart to an additional approver. This will allow the purchase requisition to leave the original user’s queue and enter the additional approver’s queue.
This option should be used when no additional actions are required by the original user and they are finished with their portion of the requisition. All that is needed is the additional approval.
As a requestor, when you have completed shopping, proceed to checkout from your shopping cart (Figure 1).
After you have completed the required fields, select Assign Cart (Figure 2).
On the Assign Cart pop-up, select Search for an Assignee (Figure 3).
When searching for an assignee, you can narrow your search by entering the appropriate criteria, then select Search (Figure 4).
After searching for an assignee, select the appropriate approver (Figure 5).
After you select the appropriate assignee, you will be brought back to the Assign Cart screen. Notice the selected approver populates in the “Selected Assignee” field. Here, you can add a note to send to the assignee. You can also save the assignee to your profile for future use. When finished, select “Assign” (Figure 6.)
After you assign the cart, the purchase requisition will be forwarded to the additional approver’s queue. The additional approver can then approve or reject the requisition. If they approve, the requisition will then be forwarded to the original approver (Figure 7).
