To place a payment request on hold, you must attach a note to the document explaining the reason it has been put on hold. The payment request is then marked as Hold = 'Yes'. 'Hold' is an indicator; the document's status does not change.
The hold flag prevents a payment request from being extracted and paid. A payment request may be put on hold any time between submit and the time it is extracted to the Pre-Disbursement Processor. When a document is taken off hold, it retains the status it had when the hold flag was turned on.
1. Click the button.
2. In the field displayed, enter a reason for putting the payment on hold.
3. Click to put the payment request on hold.
The payment request is marked Hold='yes' and a large header appears at the document indicating who placed the order on hold.
