If I enter an expense report for someone else I cant approve it but it wont allow me to "Approve and Forward" to my one up leader, what can I do so that my leader can approve the expense report?
Did you create the expense report via proxy? Then you cannot submit and approve an expense report that you submitted.
Are you able to log in as the employee you created the expense report? If so, then recall the report and resubmit.
Yes as I said it was a report created for someone else, I am aware I cant approve a report I submitted and no i cant log in as the doctor I did the report for, and I have never had this issue before...but thank you for trying to help.
@JC0852 you have two options:
1. Recall the report and have the user you created if for delete it and create the report themselves. That way your name will not be stamped as the creator of the report. Then it can go to you to approve and forward.
2. Recall the report and have your name removed as the default approver and have someone else be this person's default approver. Then resubmit the report.
When I recall the report and attempt to change the approver, my name is in gray and the system will not allow me to change the approver flow, can this be changed anywhere else? Typically the expense reports I have submitted as a delegate just go to my one up and this has not been a problem, even when i add the one up its not working....I am really confused on this...thanks JC
