HCM P&F backend update : Form suppress save option

Hello All ,

We are facing a client requirement, wherein when the HCM P&F form reaches HR admin for processing ; HR admin has the option to choose an additional level of approver after him .

if he doesnt chooses , the form would be processed at that step & data is saved .

If he chooses , it goes for next level of approval & data is not saved .

We are controlling the backend update at that step by passing X or '' in the supress save option of form scenario in workflow container .

Limitation that we are facing is - either the save option at Process step can be X or ''.

if we make it X , HR admin can't save data even if he doesnt choose any additional approver .

Similarly , if we make it '' , data would be saved even if we select an additional level.

Is there any possibility that we can control the Supress save option dynamically through form fields selection ?

Any pointers are greatly appreciated .

Thanks,

Sahiba

    Please create a form/service field and populate the field value based on HR Admin input. Map this new field to workflow container and this should work.

    Create a check-box field in your form that says something like Payroll manager approval required. Have your workflow read the container for the fields value, if X send to one up manager. After all that is done have a separate task do the submit, that way the form doesn't get saved until the very end regardless of approvals.

    Yes it is simple and easily possible. Add a field to the Form.(If additional approver cannot be determined based on any logic, you may need to add the approver also in the form) Then import the form field to the workflow using the standard task TS17900110. Then handle it in the workflow.
