let me share with you the present scenario and our future need in brief on Travel Management .
We use Windows-outlook express for our day to day official communications and invariably all employees of our company use to check their outlook mail box regularly.Today the travel request is going to the ESS mail box of immediate superior( line manager) for approval . The line manager today has to open his ESS universal list in EP for approving the TR. But the line manager now wants that he needs to make an effort to open it after getting a message on his Outlook mail inbox instead of opening the mail box with doubt whether any request is pending for approval.
We need the foll. to be enabled on EP for Travel Management-
1. The moment Travel request is sent by an employee, an intimation has to flow to the outlook mail box of his immediate superior( line manager) saying a request of Mr........ is pending for approval.
2. The approver gets a link( click button option ) over the same mail message to open EP portal page and using his ESS user Id and pass word , he should be able to approve the travel request and expenses statement
Please let me know hw to proceed with this .
