This feature is part of the Payment Runs page.

Payment Run Approvals is an optional feature that can be enabled on request. When Payment Run Approvals is enabled, the layout of the Payment Runs page is modified to group unapproved and approved Payment Runs in a separate section at the top of the page. This layout makes identifying Payment Runs that require attention easier and faster. 

Payment Runs can also be reviewed and approved from a mobile device using the R365 Red App. To learn more about managing Payment Runs from the R365 Red App, click here

To enable Payment Run Approvals, please contact Contact your CSM or R365 Support to learn how Payment Run Approvals can enhance your R365 experience!
