When a user creates a travel expense report using ESS in Portal, at the end
If the user click on "SAVE", and when I look at the SAP system by entering the transaction code "pr05" then the status of the report shows the "Approval" tab as "Travel Completed" and the settlement tab as "Open".
If the user clicks on "SAVE AND SEND", and when I look at the SAP system by entering the transaction code "pr05" then status of the report shows the "Approval" tab as "request Approved" and the settlement tab as "to be settled".
The issue is, we are not able to make a descision about the option to give to the users. Could anyone explain me about the usual procedure for the approval of travel expense report by the manager. We have got two different departments to approve the report (Line Manager and the Payroll manager). Please adivse me about a standard procedure.
Please let me know if my question is not clear. I shall explain it in more detail. I would appreciate your help.
