SAP invoice approval workflow

Hi Experts,

Am coming up with an invoice approval workflow using a template and i have two questions,. Please help.

  1. There are templates that i have come across during my research, which are WS00400032 and WS20001004. Kindly,what is the difference between the two and which one is the best to use?
  2. I also need to do configurations in SPRO>Financial accounting>Gloobal settings>Documents>Document packing. Ihave noticed that in our system(DEV), we only have Financial Accountiing(new) in the path and in this there are no configuration file in the document packing as shown in attachement below. what could be the matter and how can i go about it?

Best regards.

    Standard workflow template are usually a good example but you do not usually use them directly. you can, of course, if you wish, but most organizations have very different requirements. so to know which is the best to use defends on your organization needs.

    Also, most invoice approval process I know start from a "save as complete" status and not "parked",

    there are times when you want to start a workflow from a parked document, but that is usually to add missing data, not approval.

    You should look for the "create workflow variant for release for payment" or something like that customizing to start your workflow (this also works for prepost). see Payment Release Process - ERP Financials - SCN Wiki
