Are your Reapproval rules causing documents to require Reapproval? What are reapproval rules?
To understand reapproval rules it is important to make a
distinction between new documents and already approved documents, which
are modified after approval:
- If a new document is created the purchase order, release or requisition will always go through the approval process.
- However, adding or changing specific information for an already approved document, may cause the document to unapprove, regardless of whether the revision is incremented. Almost all changes that cause the revision to be incremented also unapprove the document, as does placing the document on hold, reserving it or canceling it.
The reapproval rules help you control whether-or how much of-a revision (for example, to Quantity) requires the document to undergo the entire approval process or to be instantly approved. So in other words the reapproval rules determine if a modified purchasing document requires reapproval or not.
