New Functionality - Invoice Approval Parallel Processing

Invoice approval workflow now supports parallelization at the invoice header level on 12.1.x and 12.2.x.

The main advantage for this change is to shorten the processing time for an invoice to get approved.

The
parallel approval process imposes a hierarchical (tree) structure on
the transaction’s approver list and enables each part of the tree at a
given level to progress through its notification-approval cycle
asynchronously.

This enables the approval process of each item in
the transaction to continue irrespective of the progress of approval
process of other items in the transaction and reduces the transaction's
approval process time.

If user selects the parallel ordering
mode, the approval notifications will be sent to all approvers at the
same time. The invoice may get approved when one or all approvers
approve the invoice, depending on the voting regime that is set up.

What voting regimes are supported?

Serial:
This voting regime assigns group-or-chain-member order numbers in ascending order of the member order numbers, breaking ties arbitrarily.
All group members must approve the notification in order for the invoice to get approved.

Consensus:
This voting regime assigns group-or-chain-member oder number one to all members.
All group members must approve the notification in order for the invoice to get approved.

First-Responder-Wins:
This voting regime assigns group-or-chain-member order number one to all members.
As soon as one approver approves the notification, the invoice will get approved.

Order number:
This voting regime sets each member's group-or-chain-member order number to the member's order number.
All group members must approve the notification in order for the invoice to get approved.
