Update to purchase order approval

This notice appeared in the Weekly Phoenix between December 8, 2020 and December 14, 2020.

December 8, 2020

When receiving an inbox item in Workday for Purchase Orders, you may notice that the “Deny” button has been removed from the approval screen. Use of the deny button has resulted in additional manual processes that make its use less efficient for the Procurement and Finance departments.

The “Send Back” button is available as an alternative process to send the change order back to the originator for edits, error corrections, or cancelation. To further support this effort, the “Deny” button has been removed from budget failure/override tasks as well.

Please email questions to John Irvine or call 863-874-8727.
