On the individual request page, click on the Estimates line to expand the view. Click into the estimate again to view all details including the vendor name, estimated duration and the price breakdown. The hourly labor rate will be based on the pre-negotiated rate.
To approve an estimate, click into the estimate to expand it and select the Actions drop down button.
You can approve all estimates across all locations. When accepting an estimate, you can either submit availability for when you want the vendor to come onsite, or assign the local user to schedule the job.
Regional and Local User
You may have the ability to approve estimates depending on your company’s approval settings. See how to view your approval settings. If you are a local or regional user with an approval threshold and an estimate falls at or under this threshold, select the Actions button and select Accept and Submit my Availability.
If the estimate amount is over your approval threshold, accept the estimate and instead of approving the price, Worksmith will notify your admin user to accept the pricing on your behalf. Once approved, you will be asked to schedule a time for the vendor to come onsite and do the job.
