Hi,  how do we prevent a AP bill from being paid?  The AP bill is entered and released.  It shows up on Aged AP which is good.  But how can we flag this bill to be put on Hold ?

Dear @pmarotta50,


Please take a look at this page from the Acumatica documentation: Approve Bills for Payment -- I think it will meet your requirements.

thanks, we are using the Approve bills to pay functionality; however we want to communicate to the Approver that a specific bill should not be approved.

Two ideas:


  1. Use a note at the document level - simple and doesn’t require any customization:
  1. Add a Custom Column indicating that the document should not be approved. With customization you could even block the approval completely, or highlight this line with a different style.

A few of our customers have the same request and would like to be able to put the AP Bill on Hold so even the Approver cannot approve it.  So I don’t agree that this is “Solved” when it’s a note or customization.
