Reproducing the Issue

Goto Manage Route Map

Enable Use relative dates for form routing and set exit date to 0 in the first step >> Create Requisition.

a. Sample screenshot 1 to configure due date

In second step of route map, setting exit date to 1 day after form creation date.



Creating new job req:

Since the exit date is 0 we can approve in the first step but not in the second step.

In the second step Create Requisition button would appear but clicking on it would not allow it to complete, since the exit date is one day. Until the exit date is over the form cannot be routed to next approver or next step.

There is no approve/ complete button under actions. (since exit date is 1 day, it would not allow to approve it before hand.)


But at the end of the page complete button appears which would not allow to approve.

If you configure route map similar to the below image in the second step, with exit date = o then it will allow the operator to approve job req.

The Due Date now can be viewed in Tile as well:


There is no way for now to indicate the exit date in the job requisition approval form or in the To-Do tile.

So if you set the exit date the operators must be made aware of it.

If exit date is zero then one can approve the job requisition.


If you choose to show the due date in the To-Do tile then Use relative dates for form routing must be enabled in Manage Route Maps.

But the visibility of Complete / Moving to next step button after the setting the exit date to one or more days cannot be changes.

You can submit an enhancement request to improve this functionality.
