Expense Manager: a user with this role can view, edit and change the status of expenses assigned to him/her. Expenses that are ready to be approved are listed in this user's "To do" list. In the tab "All" this user will find the archive of expenses that are or have previously been assigned to the user but do not (yet) require immediate action.
Finance: a user with this role can view, edit, select the authorization flow, book or export expenses to the bookkeeping system. All fully approved expenses are ready in this user's "To do" list for further processing. In the tab "All" this user will find the complete archive of expenses.
