    Can someone tell me more information on  the Requisition Approval Type in RQ04 - Requester form?  Specifically, the values in the drop down list are as follows:

    - Default to Req Location

    0 - Header using Approval Codes

    1 - Header using Process Flow

    2 - Line using Process Flow

    3 - No approvals required

    If 3 is chosen, does this mean this Requester's Reqs will move through without approvals?  Or, does 3 mean requisitions will by pass this person - they do not need to approve - "No approvals required".  We have a situation in which we noticed all our RQ04's are set up with this value of a 1.  There are only a handful of people with a 3.  We now have a requisition that by passed this person with a Req Approval Type of a 3 and it moved on without getting this person's approval.  I suspect this value should be a 1 and this is the source of our issue.  I am looking for input because my experience is with HR, not Supply Chain.  I am backing up someone while they are on vacation.  I know process flow and have traced the activity log to the RQ04 as the potential problem but I do not know requisition approvals.

     

    Thank you for your assistance!  Let me know if you need additional information.

    Yes - 3 means no approvals at all. Requisition will go directly to PO23/WH130 when it is released. RQ01 vs RQ04 rules are somewhere in the PO setups I believe

    Kat,

    Just to clarify... If Joey and Susie are set up in RQ04 as Requesters. Susie is also an Approver.

    Joey kicks off a req that should go to Susie for approval. If Susie's RQ04 Req Approval Type is 3 - No approvals required, will the req bypass Susie for her approval?

    Thank you for your help and clarification!!!

    What is Joey's RQ04 set to and what is the RQ01 flag for the department he submitted set to?

    Joey's RQ04 is 1 - Header using Process Flow and RQ01 is 3 - No approvals required

    It's the RQ01 that is "trumping" everything then. Anyone creating reqs for that location - no approvals needed so the location goes straight to PO23/WH130.
