Discount approval

Hi all,

could you please help me out with the following case:

An account manager agrees upon certain discount agreements with his customer. When the value of these conditions is over $ 20,000 a year he needs approval of his Sales manager. We would like to facilitate this in SAP by letting the system block the discount agreement automatically when the value of the agreement is over $ 20,000. When the Sales manager has approved the agreement the agreement is automatically unblocked. My client wants standard SAP, which means no enhancements/modifications and no SAP workflow.

Is it possible to this with standard SAP? And how? I hope anyone can help me out.

Thank you for your reply!

Kind regards,

Wander Jansen Venneboer

    Hi Wander!

    Nice approach: we want only pure standard, but you have to fulfill ALL our (whatever strange) requirements.

    Let's see, what might be done:

    There is a possibility to limit condition values to a customized range (e.g. 0-20,000 and 20,001-999,999). Then you can restrict authority for condition maintenance to specific condition types. So you could use small and big discount condition types, where the small ones have a different authority group then the other one.

    Of course this leads not to an approval process.

    There is also a way to have conditions with a release status 'A - proposed, B - checked, C - active', but I don't know, if here an authorization can be linked.

    Maybe a mixed approach (small without release status, big discounts only with release status + procedure) can help in your case.

    You will have (more or less) surely condition formulas or requirements - technically they are a modification. A BADI implementation does not need this - maybe here some learning process on customer side will come.

    Regards,
