Purchase Order Double Approval


Not all humans are professional. It does not matter how clever, trusted or trained we are, sooner or later everybody will make a mistake. That's why we make this module. As the name implies, Double Approval is a control that requires two separate people to authorize a transaction. The first person is responsible for creating the request (known as the user), while the second person checks and approves the activity (known as the manager). Double Approval clearly helps protect your business, but it also helps protect your employees from making a mistake from the process. This module will help to set a limit of the purchase order amount for the user, If a user makes a purchase order beyond the limit, So that purchase order automatically sets in the 'To Approve' stage. And then the manager can approve or refuse this purchase order from 'Purchase Order Approval'. This module can help to track approved or refused orders with approved by, refused by, approved date, refusal date, refusal reason. You can alert for approving via email to the specific user, or that person who has to approve limit more than a purchase order amount.
