CUNYBuy: Expedite Approval – (One Approver Completing Multiple Levels of Approval)

In some instances, a single approver may have an assigned role for multiple department approver levels (e.g., Department 1, 2, & 3 ).  When the approver can make a decision on multiple levels of the requisition, the Approve decision must be made on the last level of the user’s assigned role. Use the Approve/Complete & Show Next drop-down menu to enter a decision action other than approve (e.g., reject, or return).

To approve the requisition, use the previous steps to access and assign the approval to yourself. 

  1. On the Requisition Status panel, locate and click the ellipsis () beside the highest assigned approver (e.g., Department 3 Approval).
  2. Select the Expedite option to bypass the previous workflow step(s).
    Depending on the user permissions, the Expedite option may appear only on those steps the user is assigned to or may appear on all steps including the end of all workflow steps.
  3. Enter a comment on the Add Note window and click Expedite to submit the approval.  

Note: When an approver attempts to approve more than one approval level, the following error displays: “You have already approved this requisition. Your organization does not allow multiple approvals for the same requisition by the same approver.
