we need to customize the purchase requisition approval workflow where after a particular interval if the requisition is not approved it should automatically be forwarded to the next person in the approval hierarchy.
We have tested it and worked well.But we need to restrict it for a particular organisation,since we have a multi org setup.
Please can anyone tell me If we can restrict the customisation for a particular ORG only,
Try these options, Method-1_
Try to capture the org information before you start the WF and pass the Org Id as parameter in the workflow through WF code change. Method-2_
You need to devide the WF activities into 2 parts.. 1 part for all orgs and the 2nd part is for specific org.. You need to define a node prior to "waiting Activity" for approval which will capture Org_id and progrmatically you need to decide which path to follow.
Say Org_code="xyz" IF Node (Org_id !="xyz") --> Wait State of WF --> Next approver (This is for all orgs other than "xyz") IF Node (org_id ='xyz") --> without wait State of WF --> Next approver (This is for specific org only)
We are also in the need of doing this change based on org id. Could you please let me know when the PO Requisition Approval workflow is opened in Workflow Builde, in which process of "PO Requisition Approval" workflow ( "Requisition" workflow in apps version 188.8.131.52) I can find the "Waiting Activity" node to do this change. It is very much appreciated if you could help me to find the place in the workflow to do this change as I am not very much familiar with this workflow.
You asked the most toughest question to a functional person :) and I took help of my friend who is very sound technically to address your question... :) You need to open the NOTIFY_APPROVER_PROCESS(Display Name: Notify Approver). There you will be able to see the required approval steps. You need to add your node (Wait_activity) before the first 'Approve Requisition Notification' to avoid the timeout part.
Hope this will help.
We tested according to the guidelines given by you.However only issue is the purchase requisition end up in the incomplete status if the final approver does not respond to the notification.
Pls tel me how I can overcome that issue.Since it should stay their until the final approver approves it.( In process)
We still believe you didn't set your WF activity correctly.. Indeed it's very complex one.. Would you mind to send a screenshot of the WF which you created at your end.. Please send to email@example.com.
We have similar type of workflow customization for Purchase Requistion.
When first approver is not responded notification has to goto next approval hierarchy.
It will be greatly appreciated if you provide steps or .wft file u did
please post it to firstname.lastname@example.org
