Approving and declining items

If there are items such as requisitions that require your approval, they will not progress in the system until you take action on them. You should review each item, then approve or decline it.

Note that you can use JICS to take action both on items that were created both in JICS and on those created in the ERP system.

To approve or decline items:

  1. If you have not already done so, display the Item Approval portlet. The portlet contains a dialog stating whether there are items that require your approval. If there are items waiting, the dialog is a hyperlink.

  2. Click the hyperlink. The system displays a screen that contains a row of data about each item.

  3. To review additional details about an item, click the Show Details button that corresponds with it. Alternatively, if you want to display details about all the items on the screen, scroll to the bottom and click Show All Detail.

  4. To take action on an item, use the drop-down list in the Action column. Set it to either Approved or Declined, as appropriate.

  5. Click Save. The system removes the item from your list.

  6. If you have additional items to take action on, repeat steps 3 through 5 as appropriate.
