9.2 Approving Journals

Purpose:   Use this document as a reference for approving journals via the fluid Approvals Tile in ctcLink, which also 'marks' the journal for posting upon approval.

Audience: Financial Staff/Supervisors who have approval permissions.

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

  • ZZ GL Journal Approval

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

Security:  The role required to allow a user to approval a journal is ZZ GL Journal Approval. Assignment of this role also requires that the Business Unit be defined on the Route Control Profile of user's security on the Distributed User Profile page.

A user may not approve journal they themselves have created, therefore each institution needs a minimum of two users with the security role shown above.
