16. Approval Process

The approval process controls the flow of requisitions, orders and change orders through PECOS P2P prior to purchase order transmission. It determines when and to whom documents are routed for approval based on defined rules that are applied to all documents after they are submitted by a user. Invoices received can also be routed for approval as part of the settlement process, prior to being transferred to your finance system for payment. The approval plan is also referred to as the Workflow and may be considered synonymous within this section.

The Approval Process is one of the most powerful and versatile features of the PECOS P2P. As an administrator you are able to define the Approval Roles to be used in your plans, define workflow processes within Approval Plans and finally assign approval plans to users and determine which users are to fill the approval roles within Approval Rule Groups.

The following sections explain more fully the importance, options and steps involved in creating Roles, Approval Plans and Approval Rule Groups. The graphic below describes the relationship between each configuration step:
