Sage Approvals: Learn how to review, accept or reject transactions!

Sage 50cloud is now powered by Office 365's new feature:

Sage Approvals

With Sage Approvals Sage 50 users can review and approve or reject transactions that flow from the Sage Capture mobile app into Sage 50.

If your Sage 50 company is connected to Office 365, then you may use the Sage Capture app to take a picture of a receipt or an invoice, categorize the transactions and upload it to Office 365. The next time you open your Sage 50 program, these transactions flow into Sage 50. 

Note*: You must have a minimum of 2 licenses of Office 365 Business Premium to enable Sage Approvals.

With Sage Approvals you may assign some users as reviewers who can review transactions created by Sage Capture and either approve to add them to Sage 50 or return the transaction to the Sage Capture user if more information is needed. This gives you better control of the transactions that flow from Sage Capture into Sage 50!
