You can define the people or roles that can approve, return, or reject and delete the purchase requests submitted by the employees.

Your approval chains for purchase requests can be flexible and based on the hierarchy levels at your company (for example, second-level manager), specific people (for example, budget owners of cost centers and defined managers of expense categories), or Payhawk roles (Payhawk accountants and Payhawk administrators). For more information, see the article about defining custom approval workflows.

To set the approvers of the purchase orders at your company.

  1. Log in to the Payhawk web portal.

  2. Go to the Settings > Workflows > Purchase orders tab.

  3. Click on Edit workflow.

  4. From the Approve drop-down menu, define the approval chain for the purchase orders. For more information, see the article about defining custom workflows.

  5. Click on Save changes to confirm your settings.

The Receive setting for the purchase order cannot be changed and is set to Requester by default. The requester of the purchase order is the employee who submitted the purchase order for approval.
