Function documentationRoles in Travel Management

 

You use roles (single or composite roles) to enable employees to work in Travel Management purely on the basis of tasks and functions.

The roles in Travel Management support decentralized and central organization of travel and expenses process, as well as a mixture of the two, with the focus on decentralization.

In decentralized organization, travelers are responsible for entering their own travel requests, travel plans, and expense reports in the system. In mixed, central organization, a travel assistant can assume these tasks on behalf of several travelers. In central organization, a travel administrator can enter and review the expense reports on behalf of several travelers.
