If you are going to be out of office for a set period of time you can use our out of office feature to delegate another user to approve expenses on your behalf. If you are unable to see the Out of Office option on your screen, this will be because your company ExpenseIn administrators have disabled this feature.

Once a user is assigned to be a delegate they will receive a notification email letting them know they are now set up to have access to approval and approve expenses on behalf of the approver who delegated to them. 

Delegates will always retain access to the approval area once they have been nominated by an approver. This is because the system holds the history of any approved expenses there. 

Please note, approval for delegates does not give them access to the out of office feature unless they are a main approver themselves. 

Once you have successfully set up out of office, the awaiting approval notifications for any approval flows you are part of will be sent to the user you have delegated to. Once you have turned out of office off the awaiting approval notifications will go back to the original approver.
