    Hi Steve,

    Nice Post.

    Is project based approvals supported on the mobile app? if it is not, is there a timeline on when it is available?

    Hi, Raja,

    You can find a complete list of all approval types in Appendix III of Note 1642423.1. Projects is not listed there.

    It's up to the individual EBS product teams to hook their notifications into the Approvals app. The Projects team hasn't indicated that they're going to do this yet. To spur that work along, I'd recommend logging an enhancement request via Oracle Support to let the Projects team know that you'd like to see this new feature.
