(1) Two new user roles and permissions changes for the Creator role

We’re excited to roll out two additional user roles for your Routable team members: Developer and Vendor and Customer Manager.

🛠 Developer

The Developer role has the ability to create and manage API tokens. The Developer also can:

  • Spin up a Sandbox and collaborate within it

  • Create API tokens

  • Create vendors and customers (through the API, but not the Routable interface)

  • Create payments and invoices (through the API, but not the Routable interface)

👥 Vendor and Customer Manager

The Vendor and Customer Manager role can:

  • Create new vendor and customer records in Routable

  • Add and modify vendor bank accounts

  • Create customers and edit customer contacts and funding methods 

  • Send public messages to vendors and customers

  • Send internal messages to team members

Updates to the Creator role

In addition, we've changed the permissions for the Creator role based on your feedback. Creators can no longer connect or disconnect accounting software, change bank accounts settings, or toggle companywide payment methods.

These new roles are available now. To learn how to change and assign roles, check out our article on managing team member roles.

(1) Bulk actions for your bills and invoices

We’re excited to announce that we’ve introduced the ability to perform actions in bulk on your bills and invoices! Bulk actions will help you save time approving payables and receivables, sending them to your vendors and customers, and updating the date you want them to be sent.

Here's a list of the bulk actions we currently support:

  • Approve

  • Send

  • Change send date

Learn more about Bulk Actions in our blog >

(2) Large exports are now sent via email

Large exports will now be sent to you via email, so you don't have to wait for the download.


October 6, 2021

(1) Approve by email

We now support approval by email. This feature allows you to approve via email by replying "Approved" or by clicking the button in the email.

This is currently an opt-in setting that we're experimenting with, so please reach out to support@routable.com to try out this feature on for your account!

(2) Disabled the cancel button when it's outside of the cancellation window

We now disable the "Cancel" button when you can no longer cancel a payable, and show a tooltip with more information about why.


September 16, 2021

(1) New and improved branded payment experience for your vendors and customers

We've updated the look and feel of your vendor and customer external pages when they receive a payment or request for payment!

Now, when you create a payment or Invoice request, your vendor or customer will see a new, modern look that's mobile-friendly and incorporates your logo and brand colors.

(2) CSV upload now supports ACH addenda

Now you can add an ACH addenda record when you import a CSV.

What's an ACH addenda record?

An ACH addenda record is an optional record attached to an ACH payment. Essentially, it’s a note or a memo attached to the payment that’s used to provide supplemental information needed to identify the account holder, or to provide additional payment information to the recipient.

August 18, 2021

(1) Create mass payments with a CSV upload

We’re thrilled to announce that now you can create and send thousands of payments to multiple vendors with a single CSV file upload.

With the ability to upload a CSV, you can:

  • Save countless hours spent processing large volumes of payments

  • Scale your payment process without a full API integration

  • Lower your operational costs

Learn more in our blog >

(2) New vendor onboarding flow

We've updated the workflow to make it easier for your vendors and partners to register to receive payments from Routable. The new workflow will collect their contact information, tax information, business information, and payment method –  all still in your company's branding.

Two more user roles are available

We’re excited to roll out two additional user roles for your Routable team members: Approver and Collaborator.

Here’s how your team can use these roles:

✅ Approver

Approvers can approve payables and receivables with limited access to view account settings. This role is useful for team members like department heads, who may need to view and approve payments without the need to code bills themselves. Approvers can: 

  • Approve payables and receivables (when added to an approval rule)

  • View payables and receivables

  • Send internal messages to team members

  • View company records

  • View limited account settings

🤝 Collaborator

Collaborators can view payables and receivables, but cannot take action on them. This role is useful for non-finance executive team members and auditors, who may need access to view payables and receivables without the need to approve or code bills. Collaborators can:

  • View payables and receivables

  • Send internal messages to team members

  • View company records

  • View limited settings

To learn about each user role and its permissions, check out our article on understanding user roles. To learn how to change and assign roles, check out our article on managing team member roles.
