9.2 Modify Approved Transactions

Purpose:  Use this document as a reference on how to modify or edit an Expense Document that has been fully approved, but not Posted.

Audience:   Travel Administrators (this cannot be done by someone who entered the transactions that is being edited, it would have to be done by a T&E admin user with Approval privileges and the role ZZ Expenses Processing).

You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:

  • ZZ Expenses Manager
  • ZZ Expenses Processing

If you need assistance with the above security roles, please contact your local college supervisor or IT Admin to request role access.

Do not use this functionality to edit documents in a status of ‘Paid’. As an example, if you have an Expense Report with all items inadvertently marked as non-reimbursable, it will automatically change to a status of ‘Paid’ after the final Approval. Editing the Expense Lines here and removing the ‘non reimbursable’ flag, will not generate a payment. In this case, a new Expense Report would need to be created if the Expense Lines were indeed supposed to be reimbursable.
