Budgets can also be called spend limits. Admin can allocate a budget for a client, or a department or a group of users within a client.
Here’s an example: “Save the Gorillas Uganda Appeal”. Budget is set at $40,000, with a user limit of $5,000, and is applied to all users in the account “Save The Gorillas” for the period between Jan 2014 and April 2014. Each user can make orders against this budget up to a limit of $5,000, If they exceed their budget they must either continue with their order under another budget or place their order on hold.
It can work in lots of different ways.
For version 2 we will extend the functionality to show what budgets are applied to each user on the user table. And also, we’ll add some options to control what happens when a users budget is met etc.
