Use Case: Approval by Department

In this use case, each department manager in the company approves all the invoices that flows through their department.

I. How to set up?

  1. Go to Settings > “Approval & Expenses” tab
  2. In the “List of Users/Approvers” table you can set up approvers for each department (screenshot below)
    • Click “+Add approver” below the table. Enter a short name of the department in the 1st column and enter the department manager’s email in the 2nd column.
    • Click “save changes” just under the table. Once saved, EzzyBills will generate a unique “Upload Email” for each department.
    • Repeat the steps above for each department.

Please note that in the table above, only one approver per department is listed. If more than one person is required to approve, such as the CEO needs to approve if the amount is over $5000, you can “Enable Approval Workflow” in the Settings to add additional level of approval. Find out more
