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 requests from his/her team according to his/her related thresholds.
If needed, one member can have both authorizations and be Team Manager and Team Approver for the same or for 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 requests 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 of the platform.
