Logical problem in Purchase Order Release (urgent)

Hai Guys ,

I am defining a workflow for PO release and i did the release procedure for 3 levels of approve. My workflow running successfully. the workitem send to the appropriate users and they release the workitem as very well. I used the standard workflow. my logic was

Release Code = Approver

01 = user1

02 = user2

03 = user3

when i create the PO the workitem was send to the user1 for release. he execute the workitem it will go to the release screen and he is able to release. after releasing and before saving user1 is able to release the user2 and user3 releases also. that was the logical mistake happening. the user1 should not allow to release the user2 and user3 releases. how it can be done?

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,

R.Sathis Kumar.

    HI Satish,

    Double click on work item then goto task and go to ->Terminating events define the events as I said in the earlier reply.

    I think you can take help from Standar Workflow For Purchase Order WS20000075. The Release step uses this a method that has the following terminating event. I think you can restrict user 1 from releasing release code o User 2 by doing the release in background in other words not offering the user with ME29n screen.

    Thanks

    The problem lies with Release Procedure Configuration and not in workflow.

    What you need to do is to define Release Prerequisite for each release strategy. Or ask your functional guy to do that.

    And it will work even without workflow scenario.

    Check it pl.

    set the follwoing events as the outcome events for your workitem.

    when user change the PO and SAVE then only the following events are going to trigger.

    Purchase Order Rejected----REJECTION_START

    Purchase Order Released---RELEASED

    Purchase Order Changed Significantly---SIGNIFICANTLYCHANGED

    Reagards

    Also check the approver's authorisations. If he has all - 01,02,03 authorizations, system will allow him to approve in all these cases.

    What I am not sure here is whether system will force him to save after 01 release and then go to 02 OR

    do all 01,02,03 at once and then save.

    You need to test this and see.
