APEXP Expense Approval Workflow
dynamic AME approval group
Why can't expense reports be approved when the employee is a member of the dynamic AME cost center approval group? The employee is not allowed to self approve but the expense report should be approved by someone else in the group. The expense report is stuck at 'Pending Manager Approval' and cannot be progressed.
For example, an AME dynamic cost center approval group has been written to provide a list of approvers (A, B and C) with First Approver wins. Employee B submits an expense report. Oracle Approvals Management (AME) generates a list of approvers that includes A, B, C.
The final Processed Approver List is :
1 HR People A NOTIFIED
2 HR People B NOTIFIED
3 HR People C NOTIFIED
The attribute ALLOW_REQUESTOR_APPROVAL is set to False. However, the expense report remains stuck with status of 'Pending Manager Approval'. It is expected that A or C should be able to approve the expense report.
Note if apwdfcfb.pls, CustomApprovalStatus has the following settings:
p_continue_flag := TRUE;
the expenses workflow immediately progresses to ' Inform System Administrator - No Approver '
For the alternative case, with settings
p_continue_flag := FALSE;
even if A or C approves, the expense report remains at 'Pending Manager Approval'
