After you have submitted a PO for approval, you can track the status of approvals for that PO. To do so, follow these steps:
Step 1: navigate to the Purchase Order grid to access all of your purchase orders.
Step 2: select the PENDING purchase order you want to track the status of by clicking on the PO number or the eye icon. This will bring you to the detail page for that PO.
Step 3: scroll down to the Approval Workflow section of the detail page. This section shows you all of the approvers in the workflow, the status of the approval and, if you click on the eye icon for each approver, will give you full approval details.
