Reg:Workflow for leave application

Dear experts,

I have developed a custom workflow for leave application.Everytihng is working as required.
Have used the latest end for deadline monitoring(auto approval and request goes to next level for approval, if the user decision is not done with in 3 days of workitem creation).
Instead of this the business is now demanding to route the Work item to the approvers substitute,if the approver doesnt approve with in 3 days.

i tried to convince them for the standard functionality available in SAP workflow for maintaining substitutes,but they dont want to do this manually.

Note:They dont want auto approval,if the Work item is not approved within 3 days it should go to the corresponding substitute.

Regards

Akmal

    Hello,

    How is this substitute defined? It shouldn't be a problem to route the workflow to them instead.

    If that's what they want, then make it so.

    "i tried to convince them for the standard functionality available in SAP workflow for maintaining substitutes,but they dont want to do this manually."

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. How would you pick the substitute manually?

    regards

    • Hello,

      The substitute has to be defined somehow. If they don't allow people to specify their own substitute then I assume they have a process in mind in which the substitute can be deduced, e.g. someone else with the same line manager. Ask them how they would like the substitute defined.

      regards

    Hi,

    Are these substitutes defined in SAP?

    Or how do you know who is whose substitute?

    do you have a full functioning Organizational Structure? In that case you can just use someone from the same organizaional unit, or you could enhance OM-attributes to maintain substitutes.

    Also what is Business motivation to not use SAP standard functionality?

    Kind regards, Rob Dielemans
