why am I being asked to approve an expense from someone I don't know?

MY VP along with myself have received requests to approve building supply expenses. Shouldn't this go to the purchaser's Manager?

@hildebor in theory, yes. In reality...not necessarily. Why? Because if the person who submitted the expense was assigned you or your VP as their expense approver, it will come into your queue. There are other causes of this as well if you or your VP have been set up as Authorized Approvers or if the system was configured in such a way that you and/or your VP are part of that workflow. 


If you provide me the name of the employee, I can at least take a look at who this person's assigned expense approver is. I need their name because when I go into your site, I cannot see the approver queues of you or your VP. 

Thank you,
