Overview


AP Automation is a feature within Restaurant365 that allows an Organization to setup a specified Email address on the System Preference screen.  Restaurant365 will monitor this Email address via POP3.  Organization team members and Vendors can then send emails to that address with PDF invoices attached and those PDFs will be imported into the Documents to Process list.  Each separate Attachment will be imported as a separate Document to Process.  Additionally, supported CSV file formats will import automatically and create AP Transactions via EDI
