Who has access to approval requests?

The security logics in ApprovalMax restrict the access to approval requests.

Any particular request can only be seen by:
  • The Requester (the person who created the request)
  • The Approvers who make an approval decision for the request
  • The Organisation's Administrators
  • The Account Owner
  • The Auditor
No one else can see the request.

  4. for organisations not connected to Xero or QuickBooks Online (use stand-alone requests) Roles in ApprovalMax
