HOW TO SET UP EMAIL NOTIFICATION FOR PURCHASE REQUISITION APPROVAL


Purchase Requisition Approval enables the management to approve or reject created purchase requisitions. It can also send an email to notify the Approver(s) of the purchase requisitions that require his/her approval. Likewise, it can send an email to notify the Requestor once approved or rejected.

 

The Purchase Requisition Approver must be set up first. If you have not done this yet, please visit our Knowledge Base via the link below (copy and paste the link to your browser) and search for the Article ‘How to Set Up Purchase Requisition Approval.’
