EGL 9.2: Submit Journals in Mass Has Various Problems if Submitting Inter-unit Journals (Doc ID 2644839.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 26, 2022

Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using Submit Journals to Mass Approval from GL WorkCenter and the journal is an interunit journal, it appears multiple times on the mass approval page because of the different BU's in the one interunit journal. When customer selects one of the lines - only that line is submitted for approval and the other ones are left in a NONE status for approval.

1st problem: All three lines show up in Mass approval - only the anchor should show up.

2nd problem: If user picks the non-anchor BU it can be submitted to approval. If iinstallation options is checked to only have the anchor BU submitted for approvals, then non-anchor Business Units should never need to be submitted to approvals.

3rd problem: If the user picks the anchor BU and submits it to approvals, (then that gets approved) you cannot post the journal because it thinks there are still lines that need to be approved.

4th problem: Create a new journal with 3 different BUs and go to submit to mass approval and submit all three lines together. When the approver gets the approval, there are 3 approvals and they must approve all three lines.  This defeats the purpose of having the Automatically Approve Non-Anchor BU Journals checked ON
