Notifications - Email/notification when items are Awaiting Approval in Xero
Ability to notify an approver within the Xero org when items are in the Awaiting Approval status.
Purpose: Approver can approve or decline the transactions faster.

I am surprised a PO Approval notification email is not a standard feature, it seems like it would be a similar automation to an approved invoice notification? It is not very efficient or effective for staff to have to manually email PO numbers for approval. Please add this feature ASAP.
Jessica von Hollen commented
Yes - I agree with others - please add this feature!
Coral Minifie commented
This is really important to us with the majority of our workers working remotely. It would be a huge improvement if an automatic notification could be sent when approvals are required.
Zak Labanca commented
Although I generally hate the software (probably because I don't use it enough rather than it not being that good) it does have a proper approval process. Assign an approver and when an invoice is ready they get a notification automatically.
Chris Connolly commented
This seems like table stakes TBH. Hard to believe it doesn't already exist.
Melissa Saunders commented
Has anyone come up with an alternate solution while we wait for them to add this?
Jo-Ann Worrell commented
This would make the approval process much simpler. We are in the early stages of moving over to xero after looking at Sage intaact and Xledger and compared to those Xero approvals seems very basic.
Elda Pirozzi commented
Can you please add this feature to Xero? This would be very beneficial for us and it would make the whole AP process less admin based.
Melissa Gladman commented
this is a critical feature for our business to have an approval process/notification for when purchase orders are awaiting approval.
Nicky McGregor commented
I would like this feature across Xero and Xero Payroll, including when Timesheets are submitted for approval by an employee.
Philippa Smithson commented
This would be such a great tool to improve efficiency in the invoice approval process! Please include this in Xero's future product updates.
Michelle Webb commented
Please add, can't believe it's not a default setting
Michael Nicholls commented
This is a compulsory, every day item for small-medium businesses
Sam Donaldson commented
This would be such an important feature for us. We are looking to go paperless but finding it difficult to without this kind of authorisation feature.
Cory Halvorsen commented
This should have been standard
Ben Hart commented
Just crazy this is not a thing yet.
Robert Darrow commented
what a no brainer and a simple workflow.
Why is this taking so so long. You are charging a lot of fees now so there cannot be any excuse about not having enough funding for back end improvements.
The market has caught up and will soon overtake Xero due to speed of improvement. This is such a simple workflow we are having to resort to trying to API it ourselves from Xero into Zoho books (which does do this)
Graham Lever commented
This would be very usefuul to our company. It is noted that nothing seems to have happened on this Idea since 28/03/2022
Ayzsa Gibbs commented
You need to be alerted otherwise you are relying on humans to check and that doesnt always happen
Susan Dean commented
My team agree; we need an option to recieve an alert message each time a sales invoice has been submitted for approval by a staff member
