    postion hirarchy

      1. i have a postion hierarchy definded
      2. emloyess 1 ,2 ,3,4 and 5.
      3. 5 has the top most postion below hin is 4 then 3 then 2 and under 2 is 1.
      4. when 1 created pr he does not approve it he forward it to 2.
      but after creating pr when he clickes on approve then forward to : automatically po hirarchy name comes and it shows 5 as forward to whereas as it should show 2.

      5. now when 2 creates po and approves it he should just send an notification to 3 ,4 and 5 how to do it ?

          Your requirements are not clear. Please restate - is your problem with the default in step 4 or some special handling related to step 5?

            Thanks for ur attention..

            what i mean is 1 creates PR but he has to send it to 2 for approval..

            when 1 clicks on approve button and checks forward to button : the po hierarchy auto populates and name of 4 comes up and cant be changed...

            which should not happen

              Review the positons and whether they are assigned to the right people then review the hierarchy.
              Also, see if can change forward to in document types is unchecked.

                The PR is directing to employee 5 because he has the highest amount limit to approve the PR. This is set up in Document Type Setup for the PR.

                Check the Forward method -> If its Direct then PR will forward to person who has enough limits. Else if its Hierarchy, then PR will go through a cycle 1, 2, 3, 4 and then 5 etc..

                Hope this clarifies.
