ERC20 Approve
If you have replaced your web3 provider with Fortmatic provider, nothing needs to be changed for web3 ERC20 transaction to continue working. The following is an example on how to initiate an ERC20 token Approve.
Note that this ERC20 custom view will be displayed only on the mainnet, otherwise Generic Contract Call view will be displayed.
