Approval task is triggered for top level executive of the cost center and not the cost center manager defined in Employee Work Distribution rule
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Purchase requests and Orders work center
- Select Purchase Order XYZ
- Select Edit
- Navigate to Approvals Tab
Approval task is assigned to top level executive for that cost center.
You have scoped Advanced approval limit in your system, but you have not maintained any value limit there, hence system will assign the approval task to the highest level manager in the Org structure hierarchy.
Note: System will always give first priority to Advanced Approval limit even if it is Inactive and it will not consider limit value maintained in Employee Work Distribution rule.
If you define Advanced Approval Limit, you must define the value limit for the respective Cost Center manager. Whatever limit you maintain here is applicable for both purchase orders and shopping carts.
If you want the approvals to go for cost center managers irrespective of value limit , then you can use Approval Rule: Approval by Cost Assignment
