Customizing Activities and BAdIs for Sales Document Approvals

You can now use the Customizing activities Define Reasons for Approval Requests and Assign Reasons for Approval Requests to define the reasons why sales orders, sales quotations, or credit memo requests need to be approved (for example, whenever a net value is higher than USD 1,000). With the Business Add-In (BAdI) Set Approval Request Reasons for Sales Documents, you then define for which sales orders this reason is valid. Whenever a sales order matches these criteria, and the corresponding workflow has been set up, the system automatically blocks the sales document and triggers an approval request. The approver can release the document, send the document back for rework, or deny the approval. With the BAdI Set Sales Document Rejection Reasons for Rejected Approval Requests, you can determine which rejection reason is used for sales documents when the approval request is rejected by the approver.
