Stop using forwarding Workitems

Hi All,

I have a requirement to stop users being able to forward approval workitems, this means we don't want them to be able to forward any workitem they get regardless of whether it is a financial aproval or purchasing completion work item.

Would setting the task to General Forwarding Not Allowed or Forwading not Allowed enable this requriement?

We use the BADI workflow currently but are likely to switch to the item based workflow so will need to retain the ability to determine the correct approver in the workflow based on cost objetc and the users approval value in their role. We also make use of substituions but will be looking to restrict which users an approver can substitute to.

We will also need to retain the ability for administrators to forward workitems in case of unexpected abscene when a user has no substitute.

Any ideas would be great.

    If you want to stop forwarding the workitem fro users from SRM approval inbox, then the easiest way to do is to hide the 'Forward' icon from the approval inbox. To do that, you can go into SE80 and open internet service 'BBPAPPROVAL'. Go to template SAPLBW02 1200 and comment the lines where Forward icon is enabled. Publish the service again after commenting.

    Changing the screen just for this will cost you and it will affect other WFs. The suggestion you have mentioned should suffice your need. I think it will also allow you to do administrative forward.
