Administrators have the ability to allow users with the User role to approve journals. This option is only displayed for administrators, and it applies to all journals.
If you disable this option, when a User tries to approve a journal, the system displays an error message that they are not authorized to perform the task.
To enable or disable journal options:
On the Home page, click Journals, then select Manage Journals.
From the Actions menu, select Journal Options.
By default, Allow users with User role to approve journals is enabled.
To disable the option, and not allow users with User role to approve journals, uncheck the checkbox, and then click Save.
