multi level approvals in leave request application


We are doing leave request application. Multiple levels of approval is required for this process.

We have copied the standard workflow template WS12300111 and modified it to incorporate multiple levels of approval.

An additional step has been added which changes the 'STATUS' for the leave request from 'APPROVED' to 'SENT'.

For the approval, the standard Web Dynpro application shows a list of requests with 'SENT' status rather than the

specific leave request for which the work item has arrived in the UWL. Here lies the problem. Once a request

has been approved at first level, the request goes for a second level of approval. But since the status of the

request has been changed back to 'SENT' it still appears in the list of requests to be approved

for the first level approver(when the first level approver clicks on another leave request workitem from the same user).

We are looking for workarounds to fix this situation.

Any idea on this?

Thanks & Regards

    1.The standard Web Dynpro application for Leave workitem which comes to manager shows all the leave requests pending with him which are in SENT status.

    We have encountered the same problem . and this is something standard with SAP it will not show the specific detail w.r.t. a workitem.If you want to show something with workitem is is not possible .Still you can try with Dynpro developer if there is any work around ..

    2.Have you made the first level approved Leave status back to status SENT?

    Check PTREQ_HEADER table with respective to workitem id ..You will find all versions and status of Leave workitem at current state.
