Processing Invoices and Payments is comprised of multiple processes, from Invoice entry through Payment approval. The AP Center is a one-stop shop for all things AP and brings all of these processes together in one central place.

Security


The AP Center contains the functionality of multiple AP processing pages. Each tab of the AP Center has different Security Permissions. Users with the required Security Roles for two or more tabs will have access to the AP Center. 

  • Note: If the User does not have the required Security Role for a tab, the tab will be greyed out and they will receive a message regarding their access when hovering over the tab.


For tab-specific Security Role information, please see the following articles:
