Step 4: Sign in the window that appears by holding the left mouse button if you are signing on a desktop computer or by using your finger if on a mobile device.  

NOTE: Your signature will be saved for future approvals after you have completed this step once.


NOTE: The accountant can make any changes necessary prior to committing the purchase order after it's been completely approved by clicking on the PO #, making edits, then clicking SAVE.
