Purchase Order Release/Approval Process – My Inbox Fiori App (Workflow and Organizational Plan Setup)

 

Standard PO Approval Config Process:

 

As a standard Release procedure configuration, we will go in SPRO and go in the below node. The Release code, release group and release strategy creation is standard and nothing new is there in that.

Workflow:

In this, we wont be assigning the User Ids, rather we will be assigning the positions that we have created. If we select Position, automatically “S” will come in the field

Press F4 on “Agent Id”

So we can see the positions we created in PPOMW appears here for assignment

If you observe, automatically, we get the numbers corresponding to the Positions created.System assigns a number automatically when we create a Position during organization set up

 

Save

 

 

Workflow Configuration

 

To enable the above configurations, it is imperative to have the workflow setup in the system. In the following steps, we will see how to set up the workflow for Purchase orders release.

PFTC – Task Maintain,

Since user was already assigned to Sales Manager in PPOMW, as soon as the position is chosen all the user assignments will come auto. Also we can assign the users to the position directly here.

 

/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/image51_1040737.png/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/image52_1040738.png

As can be seen below, we can assign the users directly here also

    Hi Kumar ,

    Great document , just  a quick question can we assign multiple users to a particular position? And in that case object will appear in multiple inboxes and any1 of them can do the approval.

     

    Thanks
