Spendesk's permissions are specific authorizations given by an Administrator or Account Owner to a member, irrespective of his/her role.
There are two kinds of authorizations at the team level:
- A Team Manager can see all his/her team's payments
- A Team Approver can approve all spending from his/her team according to his/her related thresholds.
If needed, one member can have both authorization and being at the same time Team Manager and Team Approver for the same of different teams.
Each member, part of a team, has a spending policy previously allocated by an Administrator or Account Owner. According to his/her spending policy (per transaction/per month), he'll get his/her request approved by the right approver set-up in his/her team.
☝️ These two permissions aren't to be confused with Spendesk roles that give access to specific features on the platform.
