Overview

Documents to Process is a feature in Restaurant365 that allows Users to upload a PDF or scanned image of an AP Invoice (or AP Credit Memo) to the system and then enter the details of the transaction at a later time.  This is different from the EDI process where invoice details can be imported from a CSV file.  Documents to Process exists for the instances when an importable CSV format of an Invoice does not exist, and transaction details must be entered by a User in to the system

Benefits of the Documents to Process feature:

  • Multiple AP / CM Transaction files can be uploaded to the system (even in the same PDF file) and then entered at a later time
  • Vendors can send AP / CM Transaction files directly to a specified email address or hosted FTP folder location without any required action from the Restaurant Group.  These files will be imported automatically and reside, awaiting processing, in the ‘Documents to Process’ list view
  • AP / CM Transaction files can be uploaded at the Restaurant level and made immediately available at the Corporate level
  • AP / CM Transaction files are automatically attached to the transaction record in Restaurant365 for audit purposes

Security

Users with the Primary Security Roles of ‘Accounting Manager’, ‘Accounting Clerk’ and ‘Restaurant Manager’ will have the ability to Upload Documents to Process via the ‘Manual Upload’ process within Restaurant365.

All other Users (including non-users such as Vendors) will have the ability to Upload Documents to Process via AP Automation or FTP when granted access to those Upload Methods (specified Email address and FTP site credentials respectively).  By Default, Users with the Security Role of ‘Accounting Manager’ will have the ability to ‘Approve’ AP Transactions that occur via Documents to Process.  The other two User types will not have the ‘Approve’ ability.  To enable these Users to Approve AP Transactions, provide the User with the necessary Secondary Security Role(s):

  • Approve AP Invoice – this role gives an ‘Accounting Clerk’ or ‘Restaurant Manager’ the ability to ‘Approve’ AP Invoices
  • Approve AP Credit – this role gives an ‘Accounting Clerk’ or ‘Restaurant Manager’ the ability to ‘Approve’ AP Credit Memos
