On : 12.1.3 version, Approvals - Req, PO

Approve button is disabled when open Purchase order under notification


We have configure the CreatePO flow function to generate the Purchase order after requisition is approved in the system. For the new created PO, corresponding buyer can get the notification message about the PO creation.
When user click link to open purchase order. They found the approve button is disabled and cannot submit the PO for approval.

However, the PO can be submitted for approval if it is open with PO summary or Purchase Order form directly.


Approve Button when opened through "Open Document" link from approval notification was disabled as a bug fix,
but later, only for BPA releases, approve button was re-enabled for
Reserve/Unreserve action.

Approve button for PO should also be enabled again for Reserve/Unreserve action.
As an alternative, "Manage Funds" functionality from "Edit Document" link can be used to reserve the document,
but Unreserve cannot be done through "Edit Document". So after reserving
through "Manage Funds", if the approver needs to make some more changes, he now needs to open Purchase Orders form
through "Open Document" link to do Tools > Unreserve, and after making changes, he has to go to "Edit Document" again to reserve the document.
