Posting refers to the process of moving or exporting the approved data out of ApprovalSoft® in a format that can be imported to the target system, usually an accounting system. ApprovalSoft® currently supports both the CSV and XML file formats. ApprovalSoft® can be set up to place these files in specific folders based on the specific transaction type involved making it easier for import to the target system. Because most accounting systems can import CSV and XML files, ApprovalSoft® can be used out of the box without the need for custom programming.
Transactions can be exported automatically by ApprovalSoft® when the final approval is entered or scheduled such that all transactions of a particular type are exported at a certain time of day or at certain intervals throughout the day.
Different transaction types can be exported at different times of the day.
As a final control, the ApprovalSoft® data can be updated with data from the target system to confirm the successful posting to the target system.
