Click Organization administration > Setup > Signing limits > Signing limit policies. Create or open a signing limit policy. In the Signing limit policy form, click the Policy rules FastTab. Select the Limit agreement policy rule type, and then click the Create policy rule button.

Use this form to create limit agreement rules by document type for a signing limit policy. For example, if you define agreements for the purchase requisition document type for a company, employees at that company are required to read and accept those agreements before they are granted an approval limit amount or spending limit amount for purchase requisitions.

You create signing limits to enforce spending and approval limits in your organization either by compensation grade or by job. As a part of that enforcement, before an employee is granted a signing limit they must read your organization’s signing limit agreements and agree to comply with them. These agreements outline the business rules for your organization when an employee exercises their spending limit authority.

For example, you create a default signing limit rule for employees who have a compensation grade of 22, 23, or 24. This signing limit assigns a spending limit of 500.00 for purchase requisitions. Based on the rules that you defined for the signing limit for purchase requisitions, employees must read and agree to three limit agreements before they are granted their signing limits privileges. The limit agreement rule that you create ties the limit agreements that are defined in the Signing limit parameters form to the document type that is assigned to the rule.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
