Recover vendor invoices

Note

These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What’s new and planned for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

You can recover vendor invoices that have been in use for more than four hours from the Recover vendor invoices page. While a vendor invoice is in use, it cannot be edited by another user. There are times when an invoice might be in a state that is in use, even when it is not being actively edited.

A vendor invoice might be in use for the following common reasons:

  • The application might have stopped responding while the invoice was being edited.
  • A user might have inadvertently left the invoice open in the application.

The Recover vendor invoices page can be used to recover or release the vendor invoice, allowing it to be edited. Use the Accounts payable parameters page to enable the Recover vendor invoices page.

For more information, see the Vendor invoices overview help topic.
