I'm going on holiday. How can I set up Out of Office and delegate my approvals?

When you are going on holidays/sick leave you can set up Out of Office. The person set there is a delegate for yourself, who will take care of requests submitted for your approval while you're unavailable.
Note:
·         It is not possible to loop delegates
·         I
t is not possible for delegates to set a delegate for themself

This is how you set Out of Office:

  • In the top right-hand corner, click on your Avatar and select "Out of Office":


  • A pop-up will open and allow you to specify a Delegate for each of the Organisations you are involved in:



    Once a Delegate has been set, the original Approver won't be notified about pending approvals. If the Delegate is removed before he has authorised all bills waiting for approval, then the original Approver will receive a notification about all the requests pending approval.
