Viewing My Contract Approvals

If you have been asked to approve any requests for contracts to be added to the Novatus system, these requests will appear in your My Approvals browse screen. Contract requests awaiting your approval will have a status of Submitted. Requests that will probably require your approval in the near future will have a status of Draft.

A

Navigation Toolbar

Click on My Place to display the menu, and then click on Approvals to display your My Approvals browse screen.

Note: If the Approvals link is not present, you do not have permission to approve contract requests.

B

Contract Request records

View the contract requests pending your approval. You can filter the requests by making a selection in one or more of the following lists: Reassignable, Request Status, Request Type, and Created Within. You can also locate a specific request using the Search option.

Note: Contract requests that have been approved include the icon that allows you to view the contract.

C

Reassignable list

If you want to view only the contract requests that you can assign to another individual, select All Reassignable. The default view is all your contract requests (My Approvals Only).

D

Request Status list

If you want to change the default status (i.e., All) for the requests that are displayed, select one or more options in the list. The options are Submitted, Processing, Declined, Accepted, and Draft.

Note: The contract requests that are awaiting your approval have a status of Submitted.

E

Request Type list

If you want to change the types of contract requests that are displayed, select one or more options in the list. The types of contract requests listed are created by your Administrator(s).

F

Created Within list

If you want to change the default timeframe (i.e., All) for the requests that are displayed, make another selection in the list. The options are Past Year, Past 30 Days, Past 90 Days, and Past Week.

G

Search option

To quickly locate a specific contract request, type the first few letters of the request name or other identifier in the Search field, and click the icon. To clear the filter, click on the icon.

Note: If you do not know the entire name of the contract request, use a leading and/or trailing wild card (denoted by an asterisk "*"). For example, to locate a request for a company you know has the word "Data" in its name, enter *Data* in the Search field.

Important: Use the Search Filter to limit the fields that are searched by clicking on the button to display a list of searchable fields. Select only the check box(es) for the field(s) you want to search to guarantee accurate results.
