After creating or changing a sales price, the release status is set to 'Blocked' for the sales price so that it is blocked for use and awaits sending for approval.

The approver can choose the 'Open Task' button in the 'My Inbox' app to navigate to the 'Manage Prices - Sales' app to view the prices that are pending approval.
