Hi All,

One of client requirement is that Approver shall be able to delegate their approval authority, by role and cost center, to other users.


lets say for a cost center A - X is the manager

and for cost center B - y is the manger

again X is the director for cost center B. lets say X is leaving on vacation and he wants to assign his manager approvals to X1 and director approvals to Y1.

I know this is not standard in SRM. Is there a way that we can ahieve this and if so what is the amount of customization we need to deal with.

Thanks in Advance

    Hi Harshika

    It's an interesting and good requirement.

    Have never tried this. But substitute profiles may be an idea that can be used here.

    SRM uses generic workflow concept of WAS and so, I feel you shd be able to use the concept here also.

    Pl see the link:

    Best regards

    Hello Harshika,

    SAP standard substitution is by user.

    I know customer who creates a report which maintains substitute table HRUS_D2.

    The report reads CC owner and set it in the substitute table.
