When an approver goes on vacation, how do they delegate their approvals?

The approver needs to contact their AFE administrator and ask them to assign a delegate to their approving position (Configure > Approval Positions). In the newest release of AFE Nav (version 7.5), administrators can assign an expiry date to the approval delegation.

Can I search for an AFE by its well location?

Prior to version 7.5, users can configure their columns in the Open AFE dialog to display the well location entered on the General tab of the AFE. To configure your columns, right click in the Open AFE dialog and select Configure Columns. A user could also create a Custom Filter in the Open AFE dialog to filter for AFEs by their well location.

In version 7.5, there is now a “Quick Search” window in the main toolbar that will search on AFE number, description, well location and Outside AFE #.

Can AFE navigator send email reminders to reviewers or approvers if they have an outstanding review or approval?

As of version 7.3, an administrator can configure email reminders to be sent to reviewers and approvers after their review or approval has been outstanding for a certain period of time. Administrators can configure the length of the grace period that the review or approval can be pending as well as the frequency of the email reminders.

Who can make edits to an un-released AFE?

Can I get a printout of Approval Rules?
