WSUS: Automatic Approvals not happening

I am using WSUS 3.0 on WS2003 Small Business and using Server Manager to control it. Although I have selected the default Automatic Approval options in the WSUS Settings, all new updates appear in the 'Update Services > Waiting for Review' list. I have to select each of them one-at-a-time and click a button to approve it. The documentation suggests that several can be selected at once. And what has happened to the automatic approval for Client updates? They don't seem to happen. Am I missing something? Is there a better interface to control WSUS?

Hello TaffTaff,
you should have a log explaining why this happens and anyay there’s no better tool than the web interface itself.
Anyway you may force the approval via VBScript.
