Multi User - Send for Approval
Send For Approval
When the 'Order Approval needed' permission is chosen for a Sub-User, they require approval from the Master Account to create an order.
Seeking Approval (Sub-User)
To gain approval the Sub User may use the ' Send for Approval' button in the cart view or in the checkout review. Below an example is shown.

Providing Approval (Master Account)
There are two ways of allowing the master to approve the sub-users' accounts. After 'Ask for Approval' has been clicked, the Master Account receives an email notification with all the products in the Sub-User's cart and a link to the cart view with the approving button, 'Approve this cart', to be used. Or the master can open the list with all the sub-users and click the Approve link next to the necessary sub-user. Then the master will be redirected to a separate page to approve the order. Please see the picture below.

Placing the order
After the cart has been approved by the Master Account, an email notification is sent to the Sub-User that requested it and the order may be placed.
If the Sub-User decides to edit the cart before placing the order, an error message will appear stating that a new approval must be requested.
Providing Approval (Email Notification)
Once the sub-user has asked for an approval, the master will get a notification with a direct link to the order approval page. This is how the e-mail looks like:
Multi Cart Approval
If there are different carts to approve, it's possible to choose which action to perform on each.
