Document Approval On PO

I went through the Manuals and on the net to have an overview of the standard functionality and to test it on our environment.

 

But when implementing and testing it is not working same.

 

See below scenarios :

 

userid     approverid       PO approval limit         unlimited PO         email

 

UserA       UserB                   1000                                   

 

UserB                                                                                 Yes            

 

when I log on as UserA and create a PO with Amt less than Rs1000, it still goes to UserB for approval.  From what I read, It should have allowed to Release the PO as UserA Purchase limit is  Rs1000.

 

It seems that the PO approval Limit is set on the approverid and not on userid.

 

I did another setup to try understand the functionality:

 

userid     approverid       PO approval limit         unlimited PO         email

 

UserA       UserB                   2000                                   

 

UserB        UserC                                                                 Yes

 

UserC       UserC                                                                    Yes  

 

I logged on as UserA and create a PO with Amt 3000, it goes to User B for approval and PO Status is set to Pending Approval. 

UserB get the record in Approval Entries, he approves it but PO Status remains as Pending Approval and waiting UserC to do the final approval and release the PO.

 

So this confirm that the PO approval limit we set on UserA is actually assigned to the approverid (UserB – limit Rs2000).
