How do you request a vulnerability to be exempted from a scan?

I am new to Qualys - last scanner I used was Nexpose.  I have some vulnerabilities that are showing up that we know about but they are in our policy for various reason.  How do I request that they be exempted from my reports.  In Nexpose there is a button next to the vulnerability called exempt - that I click and put my reasons I am requesting an exemption and it goes off the the security department to approve or deny the exemption.  Once it is approved it no longer gets scanned.

 

Is there an option similar in Qualys?  I can't find anything like that.
