Employees with access to purchase requests can enter requests to purchase items, material or services from vendors. After requests are approved, they turn into purchase orders.
To give an employee access to purchase requests, first, someone with permission to access the Enable Features page must enable the Purchase Requests feature. Next, the employee record must be set up to give the employee access to the Employee Center.
To enable the Purchase Requests feature:
Go to Setup > Company > Enable Features.
Click the Employees subtab.
Check the Purchase Requests box.
If you want purchase requests to be approved by a supervisor, also check the Approval Routing box.
Then, you must give your employees access to the Employee Center in your account.
After employees log in to NetSuite, they can enter purchase requests and view and edit their purchase requests and purchase orders.
If you designate a particular employee as a supervisor or purchase approver for other employees, this person can approve or reject these employees' purchase requests.
