Select the Do Purchase orders need Approval? checkbox to activate the function.
This is used should you wish to approve all Purchase Orders which are made out for your suppliers. For example, you have a buyer within the company, they create the purchase order, but they cannot process this. The Manager will then go into the purchase order lookup, check them and then process them. This can be set by opening a purchase order form, select your security lock in the top left hand corner, select the group whom would require approval, give full access and on the left hand side de-select the approve box – this group will now be able to create the purchase order, but not be able to process it. See example below.
