Activate and set up Payment Management

  • 4 min.

Payment Management has now been installed but not yet activated. The next steps are to activate the solution and then run the first of the assisted setup guides.

Payment Management has 3 assisted setup guides.

  • Set up bank accounts
  • Set up vendor payments
  • Set up approval workflows

Only the "Set up bank accounts" assisted guide is mandatory, but we recommend you also run the "Set up vendor payments" guide before you start using Payment Management. It helps you set up the basics. The last guide "Set up approval workflows", you run when you want to set up a payment approval workflow for a payment journal.

For now, you'll activate the solution.
