Approval information

  • MyEvents automatically e-mails the host for approval, as needed, on completion. See routing pathways in MyMeetings and Hosted Events Overview.
  • Approval routing is based on your EN/ENT approval template, so if you have more than one template, choose the appropriate one for routing the request.
  • If needed, MyEvents automatically provides you with an option(s) for special entertainment approval. Choose the appropriate primary and alternate approver.
Note: If you're the preparer and primary approver at level 3 of your approval hierarchy template, MyEvents uses your alternate approver at level 3 to provide for separation of duties. If no alternate is designated, MyEvents routes to the approver at level 2.

Reviewing and submitting the claim

  • Check the details of the MyEvents claim displayed on the Submit page, and click I Agree if the information is accurate.
    • If you're preparing your own claim, you certified the expense claim by selecting I Agree in the review and submit portion of MyMeetings.
    • If you're preparing on behalf of a host/ meeting coordinator, the host will receive an e-mail to certify their claim using MyApprovals.
  • Final processing depends on claim details, timely submission of receipts, and the time required for the approver to review it.
  • Reimbursements are issued on the business day following approval.
