Business Case

As a budget manager, you want to enable users to create and submit purchase orders for approval even when there are not enough funds available in the control budget. You want these requests to be routed for approval to a specific user based on the requested funds amount.


On the control budgets definition, follow the below steps to enable insufficient funds override.

  1. Create a Control Budget using 'Manage Control Budgets' setup task from Functional Setup Manager (if the Control Budget already exists, you can close it and redefine it.)
  2. Review that the Control Level is set to 'Absolute'

Howdy, Stranger!
