firstly i would like to indicate i am not familiar with sap workflow, however i've been assigned to look into the following scenario, appreciate if any guidance can be provided to point me in the right direction .

we are currently running ECC6

Currently my user is experiencing the following scenario with our PO approval workflow with backup approval functions .

1.Standard PO release strategy triggered, work item routed to primary approver (User A) for approval

2.PO timeout (after 3 days) and workitem forwarded to backup approver (User B)

3.User A manually release PO using ME29N (after workitem has been forwarded to User B sap inbox)

4. Email notification from workflow sent to requestor and approver indicating User B has approved the PO instead of User A. i am guessing the name is based on who the current workitem has been routed to .

is there anyway we can set when user release manually from ME29N the correct user id is indicated in the notification email?

thanks in advance

Hi David,

since you said you not aware of WF much, its tough to explain :) however try to bind actual_agent in your WF.

The approval workitem step has a terminating event, you have to bind back the event creator to a container element.

Kind regards, Rob Dielemans
