Data from the eGC1 plus each UW organization’s defined approval routing process determines which reviewer roles appear on the approval flow.  SAGE uses the information in ASTRA (Access to Systems, Tools, Resources and Applications) to determine the individual reviewers for each role in the approval flow.

This is based on the combination of the persons authorized for the role plus the matching organization code. The match to the organization code must be exact.

  • For a Dean’s Reviewer, the org code must be ###-00-00-000
  • For a Dept Reviewer, the org code must be ###-##-##-000
  • For a Division Reviewer, the org code must be ###-##-##-##-0

When there is no matching ASTRA data for a role on the approval graph, system forwards the reviewer email notification to the Help Desk (sagehelp@uw.edu) so that we can help to resolve the issue.


As a watcher of an eGC1, you have access to review the application and the ability to add a comment to the History & Comments page. SAGE Approvals does not require you to “mark” the application as watched. Since the default My Approvals page only lists items that you need to act on, once you do mark the application, it will no longer appear on the list. You can change the list filter to include marked applications.

Check with your business unit to see what their process is regarding marking items.

To mark the eGC1, click the Mark as Watched link on the Approval Flow page.
