How to approve my own expense as an administrator

As an administrator on Concur I have access to view and approve expense of my colleagues once it goes through the approval workflow, however, when my supervisor approved an expense that I had created as a user, I don't see it in the administrator (me) approval cue.

 

Can someone please kindly advise. 

 

Thanks!

dear @aespiritu

actually the system is correctly set up avoiding a user approving their own expenses for compliance purpose. There is not way you will be able to approve your expenses using your Concur credentials. You will need someone else approving those for you. You might give access as Expense processor to someone within your team, for example a person that replace you while on holidays?

@aespiritu as @Munari_alEXPert stated, the system is designed to not allow users to approve their own expense reports. You will need to set someone else up with the Expense Processor role so they can approve your report.

@KevinD How do I set someone else up with the Expense Processor role?

@aespiritu from the Concur home page, mouse over Administration. Select Expense Settings. Go to User Accounts. When the user accounts screen opens, click the last name of the person. This will open up their profile. Scroll to the bottom and look for a checkbox that says, "Can Process Reports". Check the box, click Save and BAM! Processor access granted. 🙂
