  1. Go to Company Settings.

  2. Click on the Approvals tab.

  3. Switch On the Require approval for all payments toggle.

Once enabled, all payments will have to be approved by the designated approvers of each contract or by the admin before they can be paid.

To approve payments in bulk:

  1. Go to the Activity page.

  2. Click on the Review button, under the Pending review bloc.

  3. Select the payments you wish to approve and click on the Approve button.

  2. Approve or Decline payments individually.

💡 The decline action is not reversible.
