Release procedure for Purchase orders

Dear experts,

After PO is created, user will print a PO out for the purchasing manager's approval. Then user will set the PO as approved and the PO will be released.but the purchasing manager may not have SAP account. He only approves the PO on print out copy.

Can you tell me how to set in spro?

IMG ->Materials Management -> Purchasing -> Purchase Order -> Release Procedure for Purchase Orders -> Define Release Procedure for Purchase Orders

Best Regards,

Merry

    Hi

    One of the main purpose of implementing SAP is reducing the paper work and minimize the manual error. If u r planning to take the print out of purchase order, then no need to configure the release procedure for purchase order.

    The concerned manager should hv an access to SAP and he should have to release thro SAP.

    Pls check.

    Hi,

    Why the user is taking print out.

    In place of taking sing on prinout the manager him self can approve the PO,the way user is approving.

    Only you need to set up the managers user id and give him the training for How to approve or reject the PO's.

    I am assumimg that Release stretegy has already been configured in to ur system, as the user is able to approve in system.

    Hi Zhnag,

    Release Procedure for PO is meant for setting Authorization procedure for approval of PO. If it is approval or getting sign of PO printout , then the concept of Authorization itself is not applicable in your scenario.

    So with the help of Basis , setup a new user id and for which the Release Authority can be custiomized using

    IMG >MM ->Purchaseorder--->Release procedures for Purchase orders.
