When using the Approval Workflows for Vendors, Customers and Items (Vendor Approval Workflow, Customer Approval Workflow and Item Approval Workflow) - typically this is used for newly created records.

The new record can still be used on a range of Purchase and Sales documents, BEFORE it is approved.

For example, you can create a Purchase Order for a vendor that is NOT yet approved and then send/email the Purchase Order to the vendor, before the vendor is approved.

Ideally, there needs to be a complete block (restriction) so that you cannot insert a new customer, vendor or item record until suck time is the required approval is done.

Having control of maker checker over customer, vendor and item master is highly important to avoid the errors as all your transaction runs around these 3 components majorly.
