Shopping Cart Workflow Approval
After your shopping cart has been submitted, an email notification is sent to the departmental approver. If additional levels of approval are required, the shopping cart will automatically be routed through the workflow to the appropriate approver.
Approval workflow depends on the following:
• Type of items that are in the shopping cart
• Dollar amount of items in the shopping cart
• Account Assignment (Cost Center vs. WBS Element)
The requisitioner will receive an email notification when a purchase order is created and is being sent to the vendor.
