The insight.com procurement platform approval routing capabilities help you control costs and ensure the right technology is purchased. Here’s an explanation of each status option as a requisition moves through the approval process to become an order.
Pending: When the status is showing as “pending” next to the approver’s name, the requisition is waiting on action to be taken. It cannot move forward until this approver either approves or denies it.
Open: When the status is showing as “open” next to the approver’s name, it means that the approver is within the approval path, and once the requisition goes through the previous approvers, it will come to them as “pending.”
Approved: When the status is showing as “approved” next to the approver’s name, this means the approver has accepted the requisition and it has moved on to the next approver in the list.
If all approvers have “Approved” next to their name, then the requisition has been turned into an order.
Under Review: When the status is showing as “under review” next to the approver’s name, this means the approver has seen the requisition and has indicated that they need more time to make a decision.
Denied: When the status is showing as “denied” next to all the approver names, this means one of the approvers has denied the requisition. The requestor will get an email and may have to resubmit the requisition, which will go through the approval path again from the beginning.
Note that the requisition details page will time stamp any changes along the lifespan of the requisition:
