The following links are available on the Action Menu for the Estimate window.
The Authorize link is used to approve a record and allow the action to be taken. Frequently, a record will display AUTHORIZATION REQUIRED on the interface. If so, select the Authorization link to open the Authorization flyout to enter the appropriate information.
Regardless of the approval system used, your WebTMA System Administrator sets up the requirements. The link is found on the Action Menu of many windows such as Work Order, Estimate, and Purchase Requisitions/Orders.
Change Orders are used when an authorized Estimate is changed or a Project Estimate exceeds the authorized amount. Click the Change Order link on the Estimate window Action Menu to open the Change Order window.
Manual routing is a fast way to get approval when your organization uses the Approval Routing System. Use of the link follows the same principles as regular approval routes, but Manual Routes apply only to one record and are used when you do not plan to apply the route repeatedly.
With Manual Routing, you create a route on-the-fly from a record. You can also select an existing route for the Manual Route. The difference between Manual Routing and the established routes is that the Manual Route is not re-used.
The Show Audit History link opens the Audit History flyout. When values in a field have been changed, the initial view on the flyout shows the modification Date, User, and Transaction Type. Expand a line to open a second tier for more details.
The second tier fields show:
- Field Name
- Old Value
- New Value
- Record Type
