Approver Substitute Status

Hi Experts,

Can anyone help me with this point?

When I insert a sustitute on approver screen, the system gives me to options status: "Passive" and "Active". But, the "Passive" status always came first, as default. Does anyone knows if is possible to came first the status "Active"? Or...deactivate the Status "Passive"?

Best Regards.

    Hello,

    When Manager B is assigned as the passive substitute for Manager A,

    Manager B can approve or reject the work items of Manager A.

    Passive substitutes see only their own workitems. To see the workitems

    of the user they replace, they have to take over the substitution of

    this user explicitly.

    Active substitutes see the workitems of the user they replace

    automatically in their own inbox.

    Therefore, the scenario you described with Manager B is the expected

    behaviour with the use of 'passive' and 'active' substitution.

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind regards,

    Hello,

    There is no standard way to do this and it is standard design of the system.

    Hi. You could write a simple ABAP to change table HRUS_D2 to set all values to X for active.

    It is a direct update, but I have been at many places where this table is openend up via a custom view so a central team can maintain substitutes in case of emergency.

    Setting all substitutes to active every 10 minutes as a background should get what you need.

    Regards,

    Dave.
