PO Approval workflow is highly sensitive to changes while workflows are in progress. Remember workflow is versioned, so if you make changes to the workflow itself, then in progress workflows will still execute using the workflow definition at the time it started. Changing the user name is one no-no while that user has a PO Approval related to them in progress.
However saying that, its tough to answer your question without knowing more detail of the changes. If the original approval related data structures remain in place and you haven't changed the workflow definition, then the in process workflows may be okay to complete assuming the new positions the employees are moved to still allow the "Find Approver" function to execute correctly... not sure about the organization part...
As always, try it out in your test environment!
Thank you for your response.
We will not definitely change the workflow definition. What we are going to do is to move all employees to a new position.
You mentioned about the 'Find Approver' function, is this in workflow or in the purchasing module?
Find Approver is a function in the workflow that determines who the approver is...
Give it a try ...
1. Submit a PO for approval, change the employees position then get manager to approve / reject.
2. Submit a PO for approval, change the managers position then get manager to approve / reject.
