How does the approval of Xero Sales Invoices work?

ApprovalMax allows to set up multi-step approval workflows for Xero Sales Invoices.

This is how it works:
  • Sales Invoices are created and submitted for approval in Xero or created directly in Approvalmax.
  • ApprovalMax pulls these Sales Invoices including all relevant details and starts the multi-step approval workflow as pre-defined 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 Sales Invoice status is changed to “Authorised” in Xero and the Sales Invoice is moved to the “Approved” list.
