How do I approve service requests?
How do I approve from view requests link?
When service requests are submitted to core facilities by members of your lab, there may be times when the request requires financial approval. In most cases, the approval step is triggered when the projected cost of the service request exceeds the amount the lab member is allowed to auto-approve per the lab's auto-approval settings.
You can see all requests that require your approval by clicking on view requests under the core facilities section on the left hand menu on any iLab page. (Figure 1)
All service requests awaiting your approval will be listed. To expand information that displays, click the blue arrow beside the service request. (Figure 2)
If all information is correct, you may approve the service request by clicking approve. To send it back to the requester without approval, click Deny. (Figure 3)
Once you approve the request, a pop-up window will display. Enter the correct payment number and click Submit. (Figure 4)
Once you have approved the request, the status will update to Waiting for Core to Begin and a notification will be sent to the core facility contacts that the request has been approved. (Figure 5)
How do I approve through email?
If you are set up to be a financial contact for your lab you will receive an email when a request requires your approval. You can approve service requests by clicking the link within the notification email that is sent to you when the service request is submitted for approval. (Figure 6) Once logged in, you will see the service request where you can view the details and click on approve to provide payment information and submit the approved request to the core facility.
