The ZoneApprovals SuiteApp comes with specific settings that can be defined at the vendor level. For each vendor, it is possible to set individually the following options:
- Default Vendor Approver
These settings can be found under the subtab labeled “Zone Approvals”.
Default Vendor Approver
The default vendor approver on the vendor record allows the user to select a specific employee that always should approve this specific vendor. The dropdown allows selecting an employee from all active employee records that are present within the NetSuite environment. When on the matrix the option “Sourced Vendor Approver” is selected, the ZoneApprovals SuiteApp will check if it can find a vendor on the transaction that is submitted to the approval flow and will set the employee that is listed on the vendor as the next approver.
When a matrix is created and the “sourced vender approver” is selected the application expects there is an employee set on a vendor record. If this is not the case, the application will use the “default approver” that is defined on the Main Approval Configuration.
