    Title:
    Supplier Management - Approvers - Approval Notification and UI Access
    Summary:
    Clarifications about Supplier Management Approvers access through Worklist versus UI (application pages)
    Content:
    • As Supplier Management Approver users can be approvers in the supplier management approval flows without requiring SQM user subscription (included), will these “approvers” be expected to use only the Worklist to open the approval notification or will they have access to the overview page for Suppliers work area supplier profile change requests that are pending approval (like the Supplier Administrator or Supplier Manager)? My current assumption is the approvers that are not Supplier Administrator or Supplier Manager will only be able to access the approval notification through the worklist.
    • Also, as approvers can edit the changes initiated from supplier portal - In the approval notification of the change request, there is a link to navigate approvers to a page to make minor edits to the change request. Will this ability to edit the change request be available to “Approvers” (who don’t have the Supplier Administrator or Supplier Manager role assigned to them)?

      Supplier change management approvers do not have to be supplier administrator or manager users.  Users on the approval chain will be able to approve from worklist notification. 

      The Edit change request link in the approval notification is secured by privilege Edit Supplier Profile Change Request.  Supplier Manager and Supplier Administrator users get this privilege out of the box.  This privilege can be assigned to other users/roles through security console.

        Hi Hong,

        Thanks for the response.

        As Supplier Management Approvers are included and do not require a separate user subscription, does assigning Supplier Manager Approvers the Edit Supplier Profile Change Request privilege have any subscription implications.

      This should not have any subscription implications.  Please also assign privilege Access Suppliers Work Area Overview to the approver as the Edit profile change request link in the approval notification opens up the page in the work area.
