Alternate approver for a PO level 1 and leve 2 - release strategy 4 levels

I.hope someone had succeeded in resolving this - be it with or without development work required

My requirement too is to have multiple alternative approvers (2 up to 4 some cases 5!) in release stratergy for PO.

Alternate approvers at level1 and level 2 are required.

The strategy must have at least 4 levels of approval


The complication for me is that the alternate approvers already commences at level 1.

(I have succeeded in the set up where the alternate approver is on level 2.. hmm this is not my complete requirement )

*Scenario In release strategy

Release Codes :

A1 or G1 for first Release

A2 or G2 for 2nd Release

A3 - third Release

A4 - Final Release.

- If either of A1 Or G1 approves, the system should allow A2 OR G2 to approve.

- A3 should then be able to release if (A1 or G1) and (A2 or G2) have approved

- A4 to approve if A3 has approved.

Want to use workflow as well

Note the client does not have PPOME implemented

By assigning the same release role for A1 and G1 you can achieve the alternative approvers.

But the release notification mail triggers only if you implemented the PPOME workflow setting.

In workflow, Agent ID has to be created for both For both the person A1 and G1 and these IDs should be assigned with release procedure workflow setup.

Set it on the "Release prerequisites".

In my company it work this case : (for your example)

1. we set the first approval, let say A0 (no alternate approval)

2. A1

3. G1 - Alternate

4. A2

5. G2 - Alternate

6. A3

7. A4

At the "Release prerequisites" :

1. A0 = You don't check (no field)

2. A1 = Check vertical with A0

3. G1 = Check vertical with A0

4. A2 = Check vertical with A0 and vertical with G1

5. G2 = Check vertical with A0 and vertical with G1

6. A3 = Check vertical with A0, vertical G1, vertical G2

7. A4 = Check vertical with A0, vertical G1, vertical G2 and vertical A3

Notes: This G1 and G2 need to be checked - and in this case we made a modification on background job.

Hope it helps you
