A/P Invoice Workflow Releasing Prior to Approval ????? Weird....

Posted on by Microsoft Employee


Upon choosing to release an A/P invoice, I receive a message saying that approval must be rendered based on the workflow that is in place.

That's great. 

What's not great is that Business Central is releasing the invoice immediately, when I click the button to send the approval request.  Why is it releasing prior to approval?  That makes no sense.

    Disregard....I fixed this by clicking on "Add Record Restriction" for the workflow's "Add Record Restriction" response and changing the "Create an approval request" record from using "Salespers./Purchaser Code" to "Approver".
