Accounts Payable – 04 – Authorising an Invoice

If the person saving the invoice has authority to authorize an invoice they can do that from the View Invoice page immediately after saving the invoice by clicking on [Authorize] button. As they assign their authorization they can also add a comment and notify another user that the invoice has been cleared for payment – figure 1.

User can authorize directly from the email or login to the system to review the invoice there – figure 2.1.
