Friday Feature - Proxy Approvers on the Approval List

Great features never go out of style and neither do Friday Features. Almost 5 years ago, we had a quick Friday Feature about how to set up proxy approvers. Now, I want to show you how to see those approvals in the requisition.

First, a quick recap from the approver's point of view. Proxy approvers are set up from the Home page of Escape Online. You define the user and the end date. Once defined, that user will see all of your approval notifications until the end date. It is perfect for ensuring approvals are not held up while you are away from the office.

From the requisitioner's point of view, there is no difference in the approval process, except that they can see that someone else approved their requisition.

The highlight shows you that Linde approved the Fiscal level approval for Roy. (You can see that all of the other approvals have the same User ID in the Approver and Approved By fields.)

This is great information! If you have a question about an approval, now you know who was supposed to approve the requisition and who actually did.
