Before you can use document parking and release in Financial Accounting, you must make certain settings in the Workflow component. These are described inDocument Parking and Release with Workflow
If you want certain parked documents to be subject to a release process before being posted, you must specify this in Customizing for Financial Accounting. To do so, make the following specifications:

You can also assign company codes to workflow variants. If a company code is not assigned to a workflow variant, the document release process is not carried out. For more information, see the Financial Accounting
You must make the following additional specifications for the amount release function:
Define these in the customer and vendor master records.
