Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sourcing and Contracting work center

  3. Now do the changes to Validity Period, Quantity and Price
  4. You want system to trigger approval process for the new changes

Cause

Currently we do not have reapproval functionality for purchasing contracts. System will trigger notification to the employee responsible but not the approval task.

Resolution

Purchasing contracts does not support the reapproval process and hence this can be taken as a new requirement. Hence we request you to post in influence forum -  https://influence.sap.com/SAPByDesign.
