Information in this document applies to any platform.


After sales order going to hold and approved by approver via Workflow Approval, originator makes new changes and the order go on hold again. However, the approval receives only one e-mail notification to let know the order needs to be approved. As the system does when the order is first placed in hold, it should be two notifications.

1. E-mail notification - Subject: Held Order requires Your Approval - Work With Held Orders
2. E-mail notification - Subject: Approval Request for Sales Order Changes - Workflow Approval link included

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
a. P42090 – Set Hold Code
b. P4210 - Processing Option - Order Holds TAB - Option # 11- Set Hold Code
c. P4210 - Processing Option - Workflow TAB - Option #2 set to "1"
d. P4210 - Processing Options - Audit Log TAB - Option #1 set to "1'and Option #3 set to 1
e. Go to Web Development Client and make sure Workflow is ACTIVE

  - P98800 – Inquire on JDESOCHNG
