Secondary Authorisation for an authoriser

The practice will require a secondary authorisation on specific bills and timesheets. An example of these circumstances may be bills where the value is over a certain amount or a timesheet where excess hours are involved.

The authority for an employee to give secondary authorisation on a bill or timesheet is usually setup when you complete Step 8 of the Add New Employee Wizard. However, you can set up and modify secondary authorities outside the wizard by using the Employee Details page: Authorisation tab.

  • Find the employee's record.

  • On the Employees Details page, click the Authorisation tab

  • In Authorisation Type, select Secondary.

  • In View Type select Can Authorise.

  • The panel heading changes to Can Authorise.

  • In the 'Can Authorise' panel, find the employee who this employee will give secondary authorisation to on bills and timesheets.

  • Repeat the previous step for each employee as required.

  • Click OK.
