how to pick approvers before start of workflow

Hello experts ,

i have a requirement to enhance workflow WS20000040 (Approve Trip)  so that end users can pick the approver at the beginning of the workflow (similar to the SRM workflow for approving shopping carts). How can this be done?

1. can i turn this workflow into an ad-hoc workflow? as per http://help.sap.com/erp_hcm_ias_2012_03/helpdata/en/f4/9f9138d380f50fe10000009b38f8cf/content.htm

and would end users be able to select approvers in the standard Travel Management MSS Web Dynpro  application (which uses WS20000040 - Approve Trip)

2. should I enhance the workflow container to store the ID of  the approver? and end users will pass the approver in the approver ID container element?

3. other options ideas?

regards,

Tom.

    I would be looking ways to enhance the MSS web dynpro application. Should be possible quite easily if the application is an ABAP web dynpro application. The idea would be to add a new custom field (Approver) to some of the views. Perhaps the MSS application already offers some kind of enhancement options?

    Once the approver is stored somewhere, you can most likely easily use it as an agent in workflow. Just take a copy of the standard WF (e.g. WS20000040) and do the necessary modifications to it.
