Sometimes, you might see the message "Submitted by: Auto Submitted" on an invoice's Approval Timeline or Documents and Timeline.
This means that the invoice was automatically submitted to the appropriate workflow because the supplier’s defaults have been mapped, or because a rule has been set up in Manage events.
What are supplier defaults?
Supplier defaults are the default codes, such as account code, tax code, and workflow, that iCompleat applies to invoices from certain suppliers. These have to be set up by an AP operator or administrator – either when processing an invoice from a supplier for the first time, or in Supplier Management.
As Workflow is one of the supplier defaults that can be mapped, this means that iCompleat can direct a new invoice straight to its default workflow instead of sending it to the Unprocessed tray for processing.
When you see the Auto Submitted message, this is just iCompleat letting you know it’s done its job!
