How do I make use of approval override?

Did one of your approvers go on leave before a pending purchase order got approved? Luckily finance users can override the approval to stop the absence from blocking the purchase order.

Note: As mentioned to be able to do this you will need the "Finance" user role

Caution: By using approval override, please note that this will approve the entire purchase order. 

Using approval override to approve a purchase order

  1. On the Purchase Order listing page go to a pending purchase order
  2. Scroll down to the purchase order "Other Actions"
  3. Click on "Approval Override" 

    1. The page will reload and the purchase order will be approved.

The ability to use approval override can be switched off in the company settings. To do that, go to your initials, top-right -> Company Sesttings -> Purchase Orders. Here you'll find the option "Allow Approval Override"
