Documents sent to your action list may request various types of actions from you. The most commonly requested actions are:
• Approve: Verify that the transaction is acceptable. Approved financial documents continue routing to additional approvers, or if fully approved, are included in the next update to the General Ledger.
• Acknowledge: View and acknowledge a transaction, without the need for giving formal approval. You must open the document from your action list to clear it out. This type of action request is generated to prior approvers and the initiator when a document is disapproved.
• FYI: A courtesy request allowing you to view the transaction or to clear the request from your action list without viewing it. You do not need to view the transactions sent for FYI routing.
Note: For more information about the action list, see Action List.
