Should you have activated the approver setting, your pay-run would require approval before payroll admin can proceed to the next step.
Payroll approval is at the review and confirm step of the pay run. You need to request for approval before proceeding to complete the pay run.
You can only proceed your monthly payroll once the approver has approved your payroll.
Here is the meaning of your payroll request status:
Pending - Payroll awaiting approval from payroll approval
Declined - Payroll being rejected by payroll approval
Approve - Payroll has been accepted by payroll approval
Should the payroll has been approved, payroll admin can click Continue to proceed.
Once you confirm your payroll, you cannot go back to step 2.
