Spending Limits

CampControl provides a number of controls to keep your spending in check and your project on budget. Limits can be set per user or per camp and for orders that exceed these limits, authorisation must be requested. See Authorising for more details.

Some of the options that you can configure are:

  • Authorisation is required for all orders.
  • Setting of spending limit for a camp.
  • Setting of spending limit for a user.
  • Selecting a default authoriser for each camp.
  • All orders must be reviewed by another user before submission.
  • Selecting a default reviewer for each camp.

Note: User Spending Limit are used if specified. If not, the Location Limit is used.
