Overview

Invoice approval automation allows you to set up an approval workflow process for your client invoices. The approvals are completed online in the system and prompts approvers when an invoice is ready for approval. 


The approver(s) can be configured based on staff roles on the matter, as follows;  

  • Responsible Only - The approver is the person allocated as Person Responsible on the matter. 
  • Responsible, then Superviso- The approval is firstly allocated to the person listed as Responsible person on the matter, then secondly to the person allocated as the Supervisor on the matter.
  • Assisting, Responsible then Supervisor - The approval is firstly allocated to the person allocated as the Assisting Person on the matter, then secondly the person allocated as Responsible Person on the matter, then lastly to the person allocated as the Supervisor on the matter.
  • None - No approval method.
