Please add in the ability for a manager to authorise purchase orders electronically.  This would have to be added into the settings of the particular user.   The Authorisation would have to be able to be printed onto the purchase order.

 

"Purchase order - authorisation"

Thank you for your suggestion. Anyone who would like to be able to set it so that purchases have to be authorised, by users with a specific access level before being paid, please cast your vote here.

Thanks for the excellent suggestion @Suzi-L. I've moved this post to our idea exchange so that it is more visible to our developers, and so that other users can add show their support for this suggestion, if they'd like to see it as well.

Sometimes in a business a purchase order must have multiple approvers or an "authoriser" on a PO.  Could this be developed for ARL and possibly integrated with InTray?

This would be a fantastic idea. The option to attach the invoice in this approval process would be great too. This process is only for internal approvals by relevant managers. A reminder email or notification system would be great to notify if the invoice has been approved, pending or otherwise.

I would like to see this at an invoice level. We don't use purchase orders much and when we do, the cost is usually unknown. Therefore we can't approve for payment until the invoice is received. At the moment this is a manual process and it is easy for an invoice to be paid prior to authorisation. It would be useful if a list of invoices requiring approval could be added as a separate tab in the To Do List section, similar to A/P and A/R. From the point of view of the person who makes the payments, all invoices whether approved or not would still need to show in the A/P list but perhaps flagged approved/not approved so the authoriser can be given a friendly reminder.

Can this also be add in with the ability for a manager to authorise purchase invoices electronically.  This would have to be added into the settings of the particular user.   The Authorisation would have to be able to be printed onto the purchase invoice and with the ablity to be sent in batches

Please add a function to electronically approve Invoices, this would be so helpful!

This is an awesome idea. How many votes are required to get this happening, since this was suggested 9 yrs ago
