Assign order approver from the Admin Console

Describes how to assign an Order Approver from the Admin Console in Optimizely Configured Commerce.



An existing user with the Administrator role is required.

  1. Go to Admin Console > Administration > Website Users.

  2. Click Edit for the User that will be submitting orders for approval.

    If there are multiple Users who will be set up to approve, it can be quicker to select all the Users using the check boxes, then click Multi-Edit in the Secondary Header. Using this method lets you make the update for each user, then click Save and Next in the Secondary Header and jump to the next User record.

    Make sure that the selected user has a role that would allow for the Order Approval workflow (e.g., Buyer 1 or Buyer 2)

  3. In the Details tab, click the drop-down for the Approver field and choose the desired Approver.

    Both the Buyer 3 and Administrator roles can act as approvers.

    Click Save or click Done if using the Multi-Edit option.



Order Approvers do not receive email notifications. However, they do receive a notification at the top of the website when logging in after an order has been sent for approval.
