After the payment batch files are generated via the Automatic Payment Run app – the payment must be approved by the respective manager through the Approve Bank Payments App. Batches can be approved on whole only.

When the Approve Bank Payment app is opened, you can filter all the approvals sent to you by: 

  • Status 
  • Company Code 
  • House Bank

  • Urgent 
  • Creation Data and many more 


The batch payment can be selected and approved or rejected. If further details are required, then that payment batch can be opened to view further details. The image below shows the various payments batches waiting for approval. 

Payment batch shows the detailed payments made for every invoice that are due for payment. The due date is calculated based on the payment terms given in the customer and the invoice date. When the invoices are due for payment, they are included in the automatic payment run.
