How does the approval of NetSuite Bills work?

ApprovalMax enables multi-step approval workflows for NetSuite Bills.

This is how it works:
  • Bills are created in NetSuite in the Pending Approval status.
  • ApprovalMax pulls these Bills including all relevant details and starts the multi-step approval workflow as predefined for them in ApprovalMax.
  • The respective managers get notified that their approval is required, and make their decision.
  • When all approvals are in place, the Bill status is changed to Approved in NetSuite.
  • If one of the Approvers rejects a request, the respective Bill is pushed to NetSuite with the Rejected status.
