Approving Requisitions

Once a requisition has been created, it needs to be approved in the Approve Requisitions entry point. Initial approvals are part of the Requisition Approval workflow.

Once approvals are complete, the next step is the Requisition Buyer Analysis workflow. Approvers in that workflow will use the Analyze Requisitions entry point.
