In System Setup | Sys Configuration | Site | Approvals, there is an option to select the "Threshold Limit Check" value. This value determines how the approval threshold is calculated on a document based on the user's Threshold Amount specified in System Setup | User | Approvals.




The 5 values that can be selected as the Threshold Limit Check value are explained below:


  • None: The approval threshold will not be calculated, even if a Threshold Amount value is specified in the User's profile.
  • Full Route Accounting Dollars: The approval threshold is calculated based on the total amount that has been obligated on the current version. The application will check that every approver on the route has the appropriate threshold amount.
  • Full Route Total DollarsThe approval threshold is calculated based on the total amount that exists on the current version, not just the obligated amount. The application will check that every approver on the route has the appropriate threshold amount.
  • Single Approval Accounting Dollars: The approval threshold is calculated based on the total amount that has been obligated on the current version. 
  • Single Approval Total Dollars: The approval threshold is calculated based on the total amount that exists on the current version, not just the obligated amount.
