Approvals

The Approvals module is used by supervisors, PIs and other authorized individuals to officially approve Requests and expense Reports for UA business travel.

The Concur mobile app enables approvers to quickly approve trips even when they are away from the office. Unfortunately, delegates cannot manage approvals for other users through the mobile app.
