EAP: Adhoc Supplier Approver Change Resets Original Approval Back to Pending Instead of Moving to the Next Adhoc Approver (Doc ID 2911133.1)

Last updated on APRIL 20, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Payables - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In 9.2 PUM 28, users would add Adhoc Supplier Approvers prior to the first Stage Approval. The first Stage approver approves and approvals would move on to the Adhoc Approvers. The first Adhoc Approver will make a change to the Supplier and approval moves on to the next Adhoc Approver.

With 9.2 PUM 44 applied, instead of moving to the next Adhoc Approver, the first approval Stage goes back to Pending and the Adhoc Approvers are no longer listed.
