Leave Request - Multiple approvals



I am part of a project, trying to implement ESS/MSS at a large international NPO Customer, and have encountered a problem.

I plan to use the WS12300111 Workflow for the approval process of Leave Requests, but since the customer in some situations require more than one approval, I have to enhance the workflow. At first glance it seems simple just to repeat the approval process, but since the request will be marked as approved at the first approval step, that will not work.

We are required to keep the implementation as close to SAP Standard as possible, so the portal guys tell me, that it is not really an option to make changes to the approval functions.

I have considered making the first approval a simple workflow task, that doesn't update the request itself, but since a rejection should update the request and trigger the Process Leave Request by Employee task, I really don't see that working either.

Any thoughts on the subject, or maybe even a solution, will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards
