Re: Purchase Request / Approval

Hello John,

The module "Double Validation on Purchase Requisition" ( allows you to set an overall limit on purchase requisitions created by any user.

If the overall limit is exceeded, the requisition is set to a "waiting for approval" status, that can only be released by a user with proper authorisation.

This module does not let you manage multiple levels of approval, or to indicate a specific person/group that should be approving on each approval level.

You would need to develop an extension to introduce approval levels and validators by approval level.

I am looking for a way to manage purchase requests made my my users, which will need to be approved by their managers.

currently the purchase request function generates an email requesting a quote from the supplier, which is NOT what i need.

I would like the ability to set limits to users and based on their limit and value of request, an email should be triggered their the manager (or higher if needed) for approval.

Once the request is approved the purchase order can be confirmed/created, and the purchase can be made.

I am using V8.

All feedback is welcome.

Thank you.
