Once an employee submits the expense report the approver associated with the expense reports gets a notification for the same. The approver can approve, reject or request more information. Only approved expense requests are transferred in to oracle payable as invoices.
Approval in iExpesen is controlled by the below profile options :
OIE: Enable Approver
The OIE: Enable Approver profile option enables the Approver field in Internet Expenses. When this profile option is set to Yes, the Approver field is available for users to specify a different employee to approve their expense report. When this profile option is set to No, the Approver field is hidden.
OIE: Approver Required
The OIE: Approver Required profile option indicates whether users must designate an approver for their expense reports. If you set the OIE: Approver Required profile option to Yes, Internet Expenses requires that users always enter an approver. If you set this profile option to Yes with Default, the employee's supervisor, as defined in
Oracle HRMS, defaults in the Approver field.
Note: If you set the OIE: Approver Required profile option to Yes or Yes with Default, do not set the OIE: Enable Approver profile option to No. If you do, the Approver field does not appear on the General Information page but users will receive an error message that the field is required.
