A Resource Manager is responsible for monitoring resources available for a group of people. They are required to evaluate and approve funding for work orders submitted by their subscribers.
When a subscriber submits a work order through the Subscriber Portal, the work order stops within cairs.net and waits for the Resource Manager to approve funding. Once approved, the work order resumes within the workflow. Not all work orders require approval and your cairs.net administrator decides which work orders require approval.
In this section of the software, you are creating a Resource Manager Group. Each group contains the Subscribers that are also Resource Managers. You create each resource manager in your database as a subscriber, and then assign him or her to a resource manager group.
Once you create your resource manager groups, you assign them to a site. When a subscriber submits a work order for the site, Subscriber Portal notifies the Resource Manager that a work order requires their approval.
