Batch Approval and Post Security (P00241) restricts the approval and posting of batches to certain users. You may also want to restrict unauthorized users from viewing batches other than their own in the General Journal Review program (P0011). The Batch Approval/Post Security Constants establishes User Group Authority to be implemented for the Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable and General Ledger modules. Each system can be set independently of the other systems. Additionally, batch approval and post security is not strictly limited to financial batches. The system security also applies to batches that feed into the financial systems, such as inventory and manufacturing.
More details on how this feature works can be found in:

The post program (R09801) evaluates records within voucher type (V) batches, ensuring each document within the batch is in balance, validating the tax rate area setup, if applicable, creates the AE offsetting entries, and updates the Account Balance (F0902) entries. If multiple errors exist in the batch, each error will need to be resolved. This new document highlights 'intercompany out of balance' errors and how to resolve them.

Today's business climate is changing very quickly. Many managers and employees may not always be at their desk to perform daily tasks, such as approving purchase orders or requisitions. What if a Purchasing Manager was at home after hours, but a high priority purchase order was entered to request a new server, as a server had crashed? This new purchase order may require immediate approval, in order to get the order sent out to the vendor. Before mobile applications, the approvers would either need to drive back into the office or approve the order the next day, which could cause a delay in the order process. With mobile approvals, this allows end users to immediately take action on the approval request from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection (home, airport, coffee shop, etc.). EnterpriseOne offers mobile approvals for both a tablet and a smart phone. This feature is available for standard approvals (system 43) and Requisition Self Service (system 43E). There are two types of mobile approvals available. The first, which is the first generation, released back in release 9.0 (commonly referred to as ADF), is really just a link (URL) to a mobile application. The latest (commonly referred to as AIS), was released in 9.1 and above. These are actual applications that are downloaded to a device from either the Apple Applications Store or Google Play. This is the future of our mobile solution and many different applications are continually being released. I would encourage you to take a look at the mobile approvals, along with many different mobile product offerings in the links below on MOS:
