The setting up of approval hierarchy for PO requires few mandatory setup , which start with employee /Buyer information.These are the following steps required.

  • Define the employee and his/her superiors
  • Define the positions for the employee and the superiors

N --> Setup --> Personnel --> Positions

  • assign the employee and the superiors to a position

N -->Setup --> Personnel --> Jobs

  • define an approval group which allows him/her to approve PO's up to the approval limit. Same for the superiors.

N --> Setup --> Personnel --> Position Hierarchy

  • Make sure the document type (e.g. PO) allows 'Owner can Approve' (checkbox)
  • Assign the approval groups to the correct positions
  • Create a position hierarchy for every org according to your wishes
  • Assign the hierarchies to the document type
  • Run the concurrent request 'Fill Employee Hierarchy'
