Mandatory Approval Comments


You can ensure that your team is reasonably informed of why a purchase order or an invoice has been rejected. Using our “Mandatory approval rejection comment” feature you can make it mandatory that a user must provide a reason for why they are rejecting an order from our approval emails or our approval review screens. You can also provide some options available via a dropdown menu to quickly provide a reason:
