SAP Ariba cycle time

0 Kudos

Hello everyone,

I am using SAP Ariba and I would like to extract a report by which I would be able to track the approval time taken on each stage.

For example, User created a Purchase requisition and then someone approved it and it took 3 days to approve it and then 4 days to process the purchase order and 7 days after that.

I would like to track the time taken on each steps, how can I do it?

Current Scenario

By using analytical reporting I am able to have "Total Approval Time" of purchase requisition and that in seconds and I would have to calculate cycle time in days by using formula afterwards. It gives me the total time after completion of PR, but I would like to see the timeline on each approval stage.

I would be really thankful to all of you if you could help me out here.

Thanks in Advance

 That is a system design, so no way to currently change it. You could submit an enhancement request, however.

Dear expert, Is approval time still calculated in seconds only? Thank you.
