Ability for One Approver to Approve From the Approver Group (Doc ID 1902965.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 08, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Approval Management Engine (AME) does not allow First Responder Wins for Receivables when it comes to Voting Method for Approver Groups. 

Therefore the only option is Serial, which makes each person (who is part of the Approver Group tier) have to approve the item. 

For Example:
Transaction Type Receivables Credit Memo Approval Chain - an Approver Group could have five (5) potential approvers in a group. 
All five (5) would have to approve the credit memo, in order to process it.  You really just need one (1) of the five (5) to approve the item.
 
You need the ability to have a voting method, of First Responder Wins, as an option to be used for Receivables transaction types, so an approver group can receive the notification and only one (1) person needs to respond in order for the transaction to be approved. 

This ability needs to be available based on both Static and Dynamic setups.
