Enforced final check for invoices not fully allocated

Enhanced feature for those who does everyday processing of purchase invoices in Next®.

Many companies (at least for some of their invoices) opt for a two-step approval flow, where the second approver, is only required if the invoice amount is above the initial approvers maximum limit. (Delegation of Authority) 

Two-step approval makes sense in many cases.

Previously, if the initial approver failed to allocate the entire invoice, Next®automatically involved the second approver, even if the invoice amount did not warrant that. 

With this enhancement, this does no longer happen. Insted Next® automatically set Enforced final check, and thereby make sure that the team responsible for bookkeeping is notified of the missing allocation, before the invoice is released. 

The team responsible bookkeeping are typically better equipped to handle a missing account allocation, than a Head of Department or whom ever have the higher approval limit.    

For the techies

To use Enforced final check for invoices not fully allocated, you need to setup the team handling the Final check - or Post-check if you wish. 

Define who does the final check, and if anyone does need to be checked
