8 How does it Work? Notification is an important tool for e-Reimbursement users. e-Reimbursement uses notification to indicate to travelers, approvers, and auditors where the expense report and/or travel authorization is in the workflow queue. For example, when the traveler clicks on the "Submit" button, s are sent to notify the approver that the expense report is ready for approval and so on. Junkmail Unfamiliar is sometimes sent to a user's junk mailbox because the user and, under some circumstances the system administrator, has set up filters. Because is used as a communication device in e-Reimbursement, be sure to adjust your settings to allow the messages from e-Reimbursement to reach your inbox. that is stuck in a junk mailbox and is not noticed, will delay payment of the expense reimbursement. 8
