How are Approvers notified?

There are two notification types for new approval requests:
  • email notifications, providing the Approve/Reject buttons (you'll need to log into ApprovalMax only once; afterwards, the approval/rejection of Bills will be possible without having to log in)
  • push notifications, if you have the ApprovalMax Mobile apps for Approvers and Requesters installed

If a deadline has been set, reminder notifications will be sent both 24 hours prior to the deadline and on the actual deadline.
Every morning, a list of requests waiting for approval/rejection is sent to the respective Approvers.
