About Project Reviewers
Reviewers set up for a project are used to approve unapproved invoices (in AP) or purchase requisitions (in PO) associated with the project.
The Reviewers tab in PM Projects is used to set up reviewers for the project. Each reviewer is assigned a 'reviewer type' to identify whether they are authorized to review unapproved invoices and/or purchase requisitions related to the specified project. Reviewer types are:
Invoice – Reviewers assigned this type are authorized to review and approve (or reject) unapproved invoice lines only, and are automatically assigned to any job-related invoice lines referencing the specified project (in AP Unapproved Invoice Entry).
Purchase – Reviewers assigned this type are authorized to review and approve (or reject) purchase requisition lines only, and are automatically assigned to any 'requisition' material line (in PM Material Detail) referencing the specified project.
Both – Reviewers assigned this type are authorized to review and approve both unapproved invoice lines and purchase requisition lines. They will be assigned automatically to unapproved invoice lines or 'requisition' material lines referencing the specified project.
When setting up reviewers, you must specify a sequence number. (If left blank, the sequence defaults as '1'). For unapproved invoices (only), the sequence number determines in what order each reviewer should review and approve invoice lines. For example, if you set up three reviewers, and each reviewer must review and approve lines in a specific order, you would assign sequence numbers to identify in which order they must review and approve each line.
Reviewer 100 = Seq 1
Reviewer 200 = Seq 2
Reviewer 300 = Seq 3
Reviewer 100 must review and approve each invoice line before Reviewer 200, and Reviewer 200 must review and approve each invoice line before Reviewer 300. If you do not use a hierarchical approval system, just assign Seq 1 to all reviewers.
