Once the PO is APPROVED, the person who is creating the PO is able to change the quantity, price, date and ship to columns, and i believe the approver sees the status as PO in "progress" and the approver is helpless to stop or re-approve it.

How can we make sure that the PO once approved, if changed later has to be resend for approval. can i make some changes in the business roles to eliminate this issue. Please advise.

Hi Lakshmipathi,

Issue is related to SAP's Cloud Product (Business ByDesign) and hence customer's do not have access to backend transactions like R3 systems.

Hello Anees,

In order to trigger re-approval for purchase order you have to configure approval process at "Purchase order header re-approval " and "Item Level" as per screenshot :

Go to Business Configuration --> Implementation Projects --> select Project --> Edit Project Scope --> Questions --> Purchasing --> Purchase Request & Order Management --> Purchase Order --> click on checkbox for Do you want to use the header re-approval process for purchase orders?

Re-approval triggers only when you make changes to Quantity, price, Account assignment.

Best Regards,
