Can “Create Spend Authorization” be used to reconcile a Travel Card?
“Create Spend Authorization” is a business process that is used for documenting and submitting travel (cash) advances and pre-paid travel expenses. Spend Authorization Lines are not used to reconcile Travel Card transactions.


When would I need to assign a cart to another employee?
There are a number of reasons that one can assign a cart to complete a purchase, and these reasons will differ based on different departments' business needs. For example, if one employee is tasked with completing purchases for a department, all employees in that department can share their carts to that one employee to complete the entire order and assign the appropriate costing allocation(s). Another example is that an employee can pick out a few options and put them in a cart, assign the cart to another employee so that he/she can review and choose which items they’d like to purchase.
