How to create Stop Channels

Modified on Thu, 05 Oct 2023 at 04:22 PM

Approval Channels are used in all modules of Quadient AP. They allow you to create flexible approval workflows tailored to your specific needs. If you have any questions about your Approval Channels or want to discuss your approval workflows, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager.

How do Stop Channels work?

Stop Channels allow transactions to go through specific Approval Channels. When a transaction hits a Stop Channel, it will not go through any other channels below in the sequence. In the example below, transactions that hit the 'Invoices for Sage 100 only' will not go through any other Approval Channels below this one. 

How to create Stop Channels

In Settings, select the Module from the bar on the top. Select Approval Channels on the left. Select either all Legal Entities (Global Rules) or one specific Legal Entity from the dropdown menu. Select Edit Sequence on the right to open the sequence menu

In the sequence menu, highlight the Approval Channel you want to make a Stop Channel. If the Approval Channel is not on the right side menu, use the arrow keys to bring it over from the left side. Under the Actions dropdown menu select Enable Stop Channel. Click Save to save the changes. 

Stop Channels are easily denoted in your Approval Channels view by the red dot beside the pencil icon. Stop Channels can be placed at any point in the Approval Channel sequence. Use our guide here to set up or edit your Approval Channel sequence, or reach out to your Customer Success Manager for further assistance.
