Monitoring the Status of an Expense Report

After an expense report has been submitted, the Siebel application uses email to notify both the end user and the end user's manager of its progress.

For example, when end users submit their expense report to their manager, the manager receives an email notification that there is an expense report waiting for approval.

Likewise, when the manager has approved or rejected the expense report, the end user receives email notification. End users can also see their submitted and approved expense reports in the My Expense Reports view, where the current stage of the approval process is shown by the Status field. The following procedure explains how to view the approval history of a particular expense report.

To view the approval history of an expense report

  1. Navigate to the Expense Reports screen.
  2. Drill down on the Name field hyperlink for a selected report record for which you want to view the approval history.
  3. Click the Approvals view tab.
