How Reapproval Rules Can Cause PurchasingDocuments To Require Reapproval?
1. What are reapproval rules?
To understand reapproval rules it is important to make a distinction between new documents and already approved documents, which are modified after approval: - If a new document is created the purchase order, release or requisition will always go through the approval process. - However, adding or changing specific information foran already approved document, may cause the document to unapprove, regardless of whether the revision is incremented. Almost all changes that cause the revision to be incremented also unapprove the document, as does placing the document on hold, reserving it or canceling it. The reapproval rules help you control whether-or how much of-a revision (for example, to Quantity) requires the document toundergo the entire approval process or to be instantly approved. So in other words the reapproval rules determine if a modified purchasing document requires reapproval or not. For example, if the business rules at a company are that if a purchase order has a total change that is within 5% of the original amount, they would not require complete reapproval of the purchase order then after submissionthe document is immediately approved. If the total change however would be outside 5% the document would require reapproval. Note: A prerequisite for using reapproval rules is that the Archive method must be set to Archive on Approve. This is setup via the Document Types page and can be done as follows: 1. Start up a Purchasing responsibility 2. Navigate Setup > Purchasing > Document Types TheArchive on Approve option copies the purchase order information into the archive tables in Purchasing every time you approve or reapprove a purchase order. If the option is set to Archive on Print (or Archive on Communicate) then the document always goes through the full approval process. Within Purchasing there are three kind of reapproval rules/events that trigger the document to requirereapproval: 1. Pre-defined reapproval rules in Purchasing 2. User specific user rules 3. Specific events
1.1. Pre-defined reapproval rules
