PR not going to approvers for approval in a correct manner

Hi ,

I am using Standard Work Flow WS00000038 for purchase Requistion approval and to use this i just activated it and nothing else i changed in it.

After that i have defined release startegy and in that i have defined three release codes that means PR should go through 3 levels of approval and its working fine.

But the problem is that when workflow starts then it is sending mail to all approvers at a same time which i dont want.

It should send mail in a sequence i.e. first it moves to A and if he approves then only it should be forwarded to B.

So please tell me why it is sending mail to all approvers at a same time. or

just clarify that SAP satndard Workflow WS00000038 is only for single level approval and to approve PR from 3 persons i have to add steps in standard WF . is it?

    Hi Rahul,

    The standard workflow is not for single step and no need to add more steps. You just check your configuration done in release strategy. What have u given in Workflow option. You must give release group, code and corresponding agent for release code.

    And one more, on what basis u r sending for approval. U must send based on the PR value. For that you need to first create characteristics and include this in class and use the class in your strategy.

    In release strategy option, give the value range for the approvers.

    • Hi Rahul,

      you need to create 3 release strategies. Mentioning different value for different users. For this,you must check multiple values and intervals allowed in characteristics of value. And in Additional Data tab, give table name as CEBAN and field as GFWRT.

      you can do like that or in release strategies option under release codes, give the 3 release codes and maintain release prerequisites.

      And after doing all these, goto workflow option and give the release group and release code and agent.

      Like this u should have 3 entries for 3 release codes.

    You can also put some custom table if you wish to store the approvers. There are some user Exit in FM ME_REL_GET_RESPONSIBLE which you can use to develop your approval process.
