Connecting approval levels

When you set up an approval workflow with several approval levels, you have to connect each level with another. You may create the following links.

Table 31: Links to approval levels




Link to next approval level if the current approval level was granted approval.


Link to next approval level if the current approval level was not granted approval.


Link to another approval level to bypass the current approval.

Approvers can pass the approval decision through another approval level, for example, if approval is required by a manager in an individual case. To do this, create a connection to the approval levels to which the approval can be rerouted. This way, approvals can also be rerouted to a previous approval level, for example, if an approval decision is considered not to be well-founded. Starting from one approval level, more than one reroute can lead to different approval levels. The approvers select, in the Web Portal, which of these approval levels to reroute the approval to.

It is not possible to reroute approval steps with the approval procedures OC, OH, EX, CR, CD, SB, or WC.


Link to another approval level when the current approval level is escalated after timing out.

If there are no further approval levels after the current approval level, the request is considered approved if the approval decision was to grant approval. If approval is not granted, the request is considered to be finally denied. The approval method is closed in both cases.
