Purchase Requisitions Pending Approval (posted 10-17-2014)

New functionality has been enabled whereby purchase requisition (PR) approvers will receive an email when they have not approved a document still in their queue after a certain period of time.
• 1st reminder = three calendar days after the initial e-mail was sent out
• Future reminders = one week (7 calendar days) from the 1st reminder e-mail
• The remainder will be sent to those that currently get e-mail notifications (workflow approvers).

Example of a PR message: The PR approval process is based at the line item level, therefore each line will be specified on the e-mail.
