Reviewing, approving, and rejecting an expense report

An expense report can be:

  • Returned for additional information by the manager or reviewer
  • Approved by the manager or reviewer
  • Rejected by the manager or reviewer

To approve, reject or request additional information for an expense report document you can use these options on an Expense Report details page:

  • Approve
    Note: You can modify various fields of an expense report before approving the report. You can also itemize the expenses, if not done already, or edit the current itemizations. To itemize or modify the current itemizations, you must set the value of the lineitem.auditCanItemize application parameter to True.
  • Reject
  • Return for more information

    You must specify a reason for rejecting or returning the document. The email notification sent to users after a document is rejected or returned for more information includes the approvers rejection note.

    Documents that are rejected or returned for more information are displayed in bold on a user's Inbox tab, for easy identification.

Note: Additional options on the Expense Report details page can be configured.
