    Don't you see any difference when you click the tiles?

    the name alone is already different, isn't it?

    And a workflow setting is also different from a release strategy setting, this was already so before S4/HANA, even a release strategy can be used together with a workflow (which is actually good practice)

    the release strategy defines under what circumstances a document need to be approved and which codes have to be used to do an approval, this is totally neutral from any user.

    And the workflow does then the routing of the document from user to user through the different approval levels if it is wanted.

    Dont forget the authorization, as the user could not do any approval even he had received a workitem if the authorization is not in place.

    • Thank you for your response.

      So as i undestood, i can work with both or with one of them. For the workflow, i can define for each step a different user right ?

      I have Two questions :

      1) In the "Manage workflow for Purchase requisition", What is the difference between the Preconditions and Steps ?

      2) Where can i configure other preconditions to be diplayed among the list from i can choose the required precondition ?
