PO release -Auto approve or skip level

Hello Experts:

We have a business requirement to skip a level in the PO release strategy if the previous approver and the current approver as the same person.Their is PO approval workflow in place

Example - We have a PO release strategy with 4 levels of approvals.

Level 1 - PO creator

Level 2- PO approver 1

Level 3 - PO approver 2

Level 4- Final approver

Now the requirement is for workflow to skip a level

Level 1 - Po creator and Level 2 are same person ( identified by userid/ employee id) , then Workflow should skip level 2 ( or get auto approved ) and should move to level 3 for approval and once level 3 and 4 approves, the Po should be released .

Can you suggest how this can be achieved. Is their an FM/BAPI which can be called in the background and it can automatically check if previous approver and current approver are same then it skips the approval and moves to next level.

Thanks

VC

    Level 1 - Po creator and Level 2 are same person ( identified by userid/ employee id)

    Then why you set Release Strategy like this?

    Hi,

    You have to copy standard workflow to copy one, and modify the copy workflow to check if previous level apporved and current level agent are same, then skip or auto release.

    Thanks
