Release Notes: January 11, 2024

Note: We may roll out certain changes iteratively through our customer base. As a result, you may experience a few days’ delay (no more than one week) before you see new functionality in your Production environment. 

New Feature Available


Include Additional Expense Approver

Based on customer feedback via Solution Suggestions, it is now possible for an expense approver to add another approver to the routing process. Unlike the Reassign Line Items feature, which transfers approval ownership to another user, this enhancement allows approvers to get a second set of eyes on an expense after they have approved it. Users simply click Add Approver, search for, and select the other approver before clicking Approve on a report.

For complete details, see Include an Additional Expense Approver in the Chrome River Help Center.

To enable this feature for your organization, admins may navigate to Security > Access Permissions > Expense >  Expense Approvals and check “Allow adding additional approver for a report.”

This is just one of the enhancements we have made based on customer votes on Solution Suggestions. Admins are encouraged to review the existing Solution Suggestions, found in the Chrome River Help Desk Service Portal, and vote on the items that are most important to them.
