In ShopBlue, the initial Approver of an eReq will have the ability to enter an additional Approver known as an Ad-Hoc Approver. Doing so will add a step in the requisition workflow.
When approving a requisition, in the "Summary" tab, navigate to the "Additional Approver" section (Figure 1).
In the Additional Approver section, next to Ad-Hoc Approver, click "Select." (Figure 1).
In the Ad-Hoc Approver screen, begin entering the name of the desired approver in the Ad-Hoc Approver field. Select the desired approver’s name. You may select the magnifying glass icon for additional search options. Any campus user with the ability to approve is available to be an Ad-Hoc Approver (Figure 2).
If desired, add a note in the “Comments” field to send a message to the Ad-Hoc Approver (Figure 3).
After the Ad-Hoc Approver screen is complete, select “Update” (Figure 3).
The additional approver has now been added. Notice that the Ad-Hoc Approver has been added in the Additional Approver section and an Ad-Hoc Approver step has been added to the workflow (Figure 4).
If no other changes need to be made, Approve the requisition. The requisition will then be routed to the Ad-Hoc Approver for their review and approval (Figure 4).
