What's it all about?
The Approver Watchlist is a highly useful feature that provides your fellow Approvers with access to view other Approver's Order, Expense, and Travel Requests. Enabling this option will provide visibility into Requests pending their approval, as well as into anything that has already been approved or denied by them.
It's important to keep in mind...
This option will allow you to view Requests that have been submitted to other Approvers, however, it will not allow you to take action on these Requests in replace of the designated Approver.
Only users that have access to the "Approver Watchlist Access" section within the Settings will be able to make changes to this feature. If you believe that you would benefit from this additional visibility, but do not have access to these settings, we suggest reaching out to your account administrator for further assistance.
1. The first thing you will need to do is navigate to the Settings, and select the Approver Watchlist Access option under the Manage Access section.
2. Once you're there, select yourself from the left-hand menu, or the name of the Approver that you are giving additional visibility to. After that, select the blue +Add Subscribers button.
4. Now, check the boxes on the right-hand side, next to the Approvers you would like to follow. After that select the blue Save button.
After the quick setup is complete, you will see an additional dropdown available at the top of each of your approval pages. Use this field to add or remove visibility into other Requests within the system. For optimal visibility, select "All" at the bottom of the drop-down menu, but keep in mind you'll still be limited to who had been selected within the settings.
