We have a standard travel management in R3 and operating through portal .
First we do create the Travel request and then after approval of the same we create the expenses statement and send it for approval .
Whenever , user creates the both travel request and travel expenses at the same time even if travel request is approved earlier then that creates the error and we need to resend the travel and expenses again for the approval to eliminate the error .
We require the functionality/configuration where manager approves the travel expenses without approving the travel request that should intimate the user that please approve the travel request first and then approve the travel expenses. in this process that should create any error .
Please advise .
