          Hi,
          Your Question :

          There are 3 Levels in position Hiearchy ( manager, engineer,supervisors), there are 5 supervisors and 3 engineers are there .... now we have don all setups to work position hierarchy....

          1)now one supervisor creates pr who will get notification ..all three engineers will get(all 3 in same position) ?
          Ans : As per standard functionality it will go to 1st person whose name comes first alphabatically (Surname).. e.g say Adam Allister, Chris Cook, Blenda Bird are approver in Engineering group, any requisition created by a requisitioner will go to Adam Allister for approval if you use positional hierarchy approach for the approval

          2) if perticuler engineer has to get notification, is it possible? and dont want to use forward check box automatically wants to run how?

          Ans : Through customization you can achieve this.. Look for AME options.

                Hi,
                I am sorry if my earlier post confused you.. infact the notification will go in sequence in Alphabetical order of the name, not necessarily to all the people in the group.. Hence my earlier comments that notification will go to 3 people of that group is wrong. Document will always be routed to the first person alphabetically assigned to the position of the group for approval.

                Would you mind to go through the below url :

                Please check page-5 & 6 of the Url.

                Hope it helps.
