Bypassing Invoice approval levels in VIM (Vendor invoice management)

Hi experts,

I have requirement to bypass some invoices approval level table, currently after the one approval system determines the next approval based on the COA table in VIM and now due to some confidentiality of invoices, approval needs to be escalated from Level-1 approver to directly level 5 approver thus skipping level 2,3, and 4.

We have tried with Reassignment (/ORD/UNREASSINED – Reassignment utility) – Invoice was at L1 – Approver and instead of approving L1, the L1 approver reassigned (thru /ORD/UNREASSINED) invoice to L-5 Approver. When L5 approved it and then it routed down the ladder to L3, L4 and L5.

Could you please how I can resolve this?

    you can assign level 5 for temporary basis on all the level and after approving this you can remove

    As per requirement this is one off .

    get the required approval to change the table.

      Hi Preeti,

      Thanks for your input. This is going to be on going process for my client and they don't want to change the approval table as there are other invoices needs to be process with all level. This requirement is for some confidential invoices which they don't want to go thru the approval levels.
