Get an immediate insight into your order's submission status after approval
You can now get instant clarification on the submission status of orders thanks to a handy new icon in the Approved tray. Located in the right-hand column beside an order, this little black tick tells you exactly what you need to know about your order’s journey after approval, including the supplier email address it was sent to, the date and time it was sent, and if it was sent automatically by the system. To view this vital summary, simply hover over the icon in the tray.
When an order hasn’t reached a supplier – either because no email address was entered in the order, or the automatic supplier emails permission wasn’t switched on – a pink warning icon will appear in place of the black tick to remind you that the order still needs to be sent. Clicking this warning icon will take you to the order summary page, where you can now manually issue fully approved orders to your suppliers approval using the new ‘Issue to Supplier’ button.
The order Approval Timeline has also been enhanced to include a useful submission status summary. Just click an order and select ‘Documents and Timeline’ to see a detailed record of its journey, from creation to full approval, and finally, submission to the supplier.
This enhancement to Order:
- Acts as a helpful reminder to submit unsent orders
- Gives you instant clarity about your order's submission status
- Provides a detailed digital record of your company's ordering
