What is a Default Approver? (NetSuite)
When a new Vendor, Item or Account gets added in NetSuite, chances are that this won't be reflected in the approval matrix.
To avoid an automatic approval of such not yet allocated requests, a Default Approver can be specified for each step. Then, if nobody is defined as an Approver based on the approval matrix, the request will be assigned to the Default Approver.
To set a Default Approver, open the approval workflow settings and click in the respective step underneath Default Approver on the Add an Approver button: Please note: the option Default Approver is only available if there are no Approvers with the rule “Always approves”.
