Once you have chosen Task-Based Security in the Security Setup window, and assigned Security Roles and Tasks to the desired Approvers, Threshold IDs can be created to enable a secure workflow process.

Watch the video below for an example of two Threshold IDs that enable secure approval workflow with signatures:

A Threshold ID allows you to save a series of threshold ranges, associated with User Task IDs and default signatures in the way that works best for your company. Threshold IDs are stored at the system-level, and can be assigned to checkbooks for cross-company use. Threshold IDs hold the logic that enables secure approval workflow to be applied to payment processes, and must be assigned to a checkbook in order to take effect.

Example of a Threshold ID that enables secure approval workflow:

  1. Enter a name that identifies your configuration in the Threshold ID field (ex. AP_APPROVAL). Adding a description is *optional.
  1. Tab off the Threshold ID name. The From and To amount fields automatically populate from 0.01 to the maximum dollar amount.

  1. Create the first threshold by typing the upper limit in the To field. In the example below, the first threshold range is $0.01 – $500.00.

  1. It is possible to choose none, one, or two Approvers for each threshold range. Use the look-up to select the correct Approver Task ID.
  1. Continue to tab to the Default User Signature 1 field and use the look-up to choose the desired signature file for checks printed within that threshold range. If you want a signature line to be printed in addition to or instead of a signature file, check the Signature Line box.

  1. When tabbing to the next line, the threshold will automatically readjust to the next possible monetary increment, so that there is never a dollar amount left out of your security configuration. In our example, for the second threshold, one Approver is needed along with her signature and a signature line. Karen is assigned as a Mekorma Approver Level 1 and her appropriate Task ID was chosen using the look-up:

  1. By tabbing to the next line in the window, the final threshold range is configured. This threshold goes up to the maximum amount. Mekorma Approver Level 2 is assigned by using the look-up; Ryan’s signature has been selected to print on checks within this final range; and, an additional signature line will printed for a handwritten signature by checking the Signature Line box only for Default User Signature 2.
