Primary and Backup approvers will receive an email notification indicating an approval is needed. The primary approver is always listed in the To: field with backup approvers listed in the CC: field. Emails will be sent daily to the primary approver.
In the system, pending approvals can be located in the Task List. Approvals can be sorted by Your Tasks or Group Tasks. Additionally, if you have more than one approval authority (for example invoices and purchase requests), you can click on the icon next to Your Tasks to sort by type of record.
