KUPPS Email Approval for Requisitions

KUPPS Approvers can approve Requisitions through email notification without logging directly into KUPPS.  These instructions are for approving KUPPS requisitions (PR’s) directly through the email notification.    

NOTE – Email notifications provide significant detail about each PR, but may not fully illustrate complex accounting code split details.  Approvers are responsible for the accurate assignment of chartfield detail.  Open the requisition in KUPPS if you are unsure about the information provided in the email notice.

  • Approve – Completes the approval of the PR.
  • Assign to myself – Prevents other Approvers authorized to approve the PR from having access to approve or reject.  This action does not approve the PR, but allows the Approver to edit the PR within the KUPPS application. 
  • Reject – Terminates the PR so that it may no longer be used.
  • Return to Requisitioner – Notifies the requisitioner to take corrective active on the PR and resubmit for approval.  It does not terminate the PR – it pushes it back within the workflow.

Comment – Type a comment if applicable to the transaction.

Click the  button to submit the action selected.

 4   Confirm Action.  Click the  button to confirm the action.

The outcome will be tracked in the History of the PR document.  The entry will record that it was approved via email.
