Authorizing blanket sales orders is used to check the blanket sales orders created before they are processed. However, authorization is an optional process as it depends on the settings at System ➔ General ➔ Settings, in Order Settings. If you have selected the Blanket order check box under the Authorize section, authorization becomes mandatory. Otherwise, the blanket sales orders created will be authorized automatically.
Only employees with the necessary rights defined at HR ➔ Human Resources ➔ Maintain or System ➔ HR & Securities ➔ Resources, in the Rights tab are allowed to authorize blanket sales orders.
Blanket sales orders must be authorized if you want to print the confirmations unless authorization is set as optional.
