For some Requisitions, the approval process may require more time than is configured before it will Escalate automatically to the next user in the chain. If enabled, Approvers can use the Pause Requisition function to provide more time to review the line items and/or communicate with the Buyer. When ready, the Approver is able to Resume the Requisition. Pause Requisition requires the Edit Requisition function to be enabled. To have this function enabled for your Community you will need to reach out to your Account Manager to discuss further.
