    Are you doing this in SRM? Because my belief is the standard recommendation is to use the SAP options, either 1 of the 0, 1 or 2 step approvals, Process Controlled Wf or the BADI approvals. SAP provide templates for all these.

    If you don't use one of these options, then you will find some functionality does not work, for instance the 'Approval preview'.

    So I would not (my opinion, just saying, it's up to you), I would not be doing an application controlled Wf with dynamic parallel processing. Your choice and others might well know better than me, but thats my view.

    So I would use the APPROVER_LIST with the BRANCH field and the BADI approval.

    Good luck

    I think so. in the APPROVAL_LIST table (AC Workflow) there are 2 keys, INDEX and BRANCH, if you use the BRANCH I believe it sends WI's in parallel

    Hi Sudhanshu

    You should use dynamic parallel processing to achieve this:
