When does a pending purchase order become activated?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I created a new purchase order in the Billing tab for one of my clients (scheduled to go live April 1), but for a week now it still shows as "Pending."  My question is whether or not the status will changed to "Active" at midnight April 1, or if it should already say that and the current "Pending" status means something is wrong and preventing it from saying "Active" or "Approved."


Thanks for your help!

I think the purchase order should be active on April 1 based on your account time zone. If it is not active then I think there is a problem with setup of purchase order. There can be a problem from Google's end as well.
