Method to approve PO and PR

I need to know the different methods if Head/ directors of departments have SAP ID only for ME54N and ME29N and they are not using it because release strategy is also aligned with email. They are approving through email. how can I save SAP ID license? Because they are only have approving Transaction code. are there any options for approval?

    Hi Syed,

    There is an option of parsing the inbound email & trigger relevant action i.e to approve or reject PO.

    The process is -> workflow will trigger email to the approver with 2 links in the mail body to approve or reject, once the approver clicks on this line it will send an email back to SAP with the subject as Approve or Reject & from ABAP we can parse this email & run the PO BAPI to complete the approval process.

    Hello Abbas,

    You can reduce the cost if you can develop the same screen through net-weaver and provide those user for approval as cost of those license are very low in comparison with professional licenses.

    Thanks,

    One should not think of reducing license or costs in such cases.

    Every email that execute some action in SAP..in this case approval/rejection should be associated with a SAP userid (licensed).

    without a userid (email) we can have problems in audits/licensing issues etc.
