Welcome! How can we help?

Delegate my duties to another Authoriser

You're counting down the days. You have the date circled. 6 months in the making, 2 weeks holiday here you come! Now to tidy up the loose ends... setting up who will take your over your duties in your absence. 

In the Locomote Corporate Travel Platform there is the ability to pass your assigned role duties to another user with the same authority for a set date range, if you are going to be away for a period of time.

This enables you to defer those responsibilities until your return, where the delegated role will revert back automatically.

 

In the event the delegation was not able to be set up in-time, a traveller can forward trip their trip request authorisation to a different Authoriser. Review this article on how to do this.
