Work Status in BPC 10.1

Hi All,

I have a work status state as below:

  • unlocked
  • submitted
  • approved

the owner dimension is entity as shown below:

Entity AA (owner properties is : Manager2)

---> Entity AA1 (owner properties is : Manager1)

---> Entity AA1-1 (owner properties is : staff1)

---> Entity AA1-2 (owner properties is : staff2)

---> Entity AA1-3 (owner properties is : staff3)

My question is:

After I set the work status Entity AA1-1 to "submitted" using ID=Staff1, the ID=Manager1 can change the work status set to "Approved" for all entity AA1-1, AA1-2, AA1-3 even before Entity AA1-2 and AA1-3 change their work status set to "submitted".

Is this the way it works???? because my understanding, if entity Entity AA1-2 and AA1-3 have not have work status state="submitted", manager1 should not be able to change their status to "approve"

thanks.

    Dear U-one,

    Since Entity AA1 is the manager they will be able to approve prior to submission of other entities.

    Entity AA1 (owner properties is : Manager1)

    ---> Entity AA1-1 (owner properties is : staff1)

    ---> Entity AA1-2 (owner properties is : staff2)

    ---> Entity AA1-3 (owner properties is : staff3)

    below steps to be followed.

    1) Badi logic to be implemented where it has to fetch all the base members of Entity AA1 and check the individual status code for (SUBMITTED) in the table UJ*_STEP_RGEN for all the base level entities and it should display error message if any base entities are not submitted prior to submission of parent(AA1)

    2) Please check if the below workaround helps.

    create step1 by passing all the base members of the entities.

    create step2 passing all the parent members of the entities(step2 will be in pending state till step1 is completed)

    Thanks,

    • Hi U-One,

      Yes, multiple steps to be created

      1) all AA1-1... BB1-1...

      2) AA1,BB1

      3)AA, BB

      Please explain the worklfow of the each users.

      As per my understanding AA1-1.. BB1-1 are the performers once they complete the step . then should avaliable AA1, BB1 once they complete the step then it should to final level approval to AA, BB.

      Thanks,

    In work status setting for Submitted step do you have it controlled by Owner and Manager?

    Set it to be controlled only by "Owner".

    Disregard that. Was thinking about something else.

    Manager will have the right of Approval. Fiddle with "Order" of tasks in Works status settings.

    Maybe you can create another placeholder task between Approved and Submit and maybe that helps, because Order in Works Status makes sense.
