Approval levels are assigned to members of approval chains to determine the dollar value they can clear up to for approvals. These levels can also be assigned within a users profile for "self approval". If the user creates a requisition that is within their self approval level, the requisition will be approved and sent to the supplier immediately. You can view and create Approval Levels by going to Administration Module -> Approvals -> Levels.
To add an approval level enter the Name and Limit for the level and select Add.
After you have created the Approval level it can not be updated only deleted if the Approval level is not currently being used within an Approval Chain or as a self approval limit.
Once created, you will be able to use the Approval Level within an Approval Chain. This sets the limit delegated approvers are able to authorize before it is escalated along the chain.
Self Approval Level
An Approval Level can also be assigned to a user, to set a limit for purchases that do not need delegated approval by Editing a User.
