don't think you can do that with standard approver hierarchy due to the approval list you wish to build.
If approver AAA can be bypassed and go directly to approver CCC for cost center 1111, you can do that by building a straight approver hierarchy and go with direct forward method. Of course you need to build approver group with different account range.
However, to satisfy the requirement you can use Approval Management (AME) by defining dynamic attribute to return the value of the cost center being chosen, and defining rules and condition for every value of the cost center (cost center 1111 should build approver list AAA > CCC, and so on).
You may be able to do this by using the a/c number range when defining the approval groups.
So define 2 approval groups - one for each cost center.
And then assign the approval group to appropriate person.
Hope this helps.
My problem is not how to define approval groups (this will work!), but how to generate an approval list (or how to setup hierarchy)
Approval list should be generated from those people who can approve my cc, not my next in line manager
when I create Req for cc 1111,
My approval list shd be: Approver AAA -> Approver CCC
when I create Req for cc 222,
My approval list shd be: Approver BBB
One solution can be to create a separate hierarchy for each CC range (ie Marketing, IT, etc) and let requestor to choose the correct hierarchy from LOV. The problem here will be that multiple hierarchies are difficult to maintain. For example, if the position for Deputy CFO changes, I have to adjust each hierarchy
I'll have a look at the AME
Did you get any where with the cost centre driven approval hiearchy? My company is trying to do something similar. Can you please let me know if you got your desired results.
Thanks in advance
Hi, i'm also facing the same challenge,can you please tell me more about the option of have multiple hierarchies.
