Support for the approval of Xero Purchase Orders

It is now possible to set up multi-step approval workflows for Purchase Orders created in Xero, pretty much as it is done for Xero Bills.

We are also planning to enable the creation of Purchase Orders directly in ApprovalMax.
Please let us know if you are interested in the solution and we'll take your requirements into account. Just contact us on

Force an approval/rejection

The Administrator of an Organisation can now force the approval/rejection for any request to cover exceptional cases, even if they are not an Approver. A corresponding event will be logged in the request history for the audit trail.

Other fixes and enhancements

  • Fixed the issue with the Approve/Reject buttons in the "Approval required" email notifications sent in step 2, step 3, etc.; they didn't work properly in some cases
  • Fixed the issue with names of removed steps in the request history
