Modify PO approval notification

All,

I need to add some extra information to the PO approval notification.
I have downloaded the PO Approval item but I am not sure which
process/ message I should change.

Can you please tell me how to find out what needs to be changed or
where I should make changes in the workflow?

Thanks.

    - Look at the notification that you want to change in status monitor of Workflow administrator.
    - Notedown Process name & notification activity - Internal name
    - in POAPPRV item workflow, open the notification activity, there should be one message assigned to it, you would need to modify if that message node.

    I have identified the message as "PO Approve".

    I have added a new attribute called "Requisition Number" to "PO Approval Process" and used it
    in "Approve PO" message. I have also modified the procedure PO_POAPPROVAL_INIT1.SetPOHdrAttributes
    to retrieve the requisition number of a PO and setting the attribute of "Requisition Number" with it.

    Then, in the Approve PO message body I have added "Requisition Number: &REQUISITION_NUMBER" in workflow
    builder and saved it in to the target database.
    But, the approval workflow notification message is not picking my requisition number.

    I am not sure how to actually modify the message of the notification to use the
    newly added Requisition number attribute in it.

    Can any please give me some direction here?

    Thanks.

    See if that message has OAF page region attached to it ..
    if so you need to add extra attribute to the OAF page region to reflect your change.

    I have created a new notification for PO approval notification. I want the PO approval workflow to use it.
    So, I tried to modify the seeded "Notify Approver Subprocess" to use my new notification. But, it is read
    only in workflow builder.

    Can I not modify a seeded process?
