Not much update for approvals in this new release so I just summarize the changes from 11.1.2. First step, define the Planning Unit Hierarchy.
Input the Hierarchy Name, select type of Approvals (None, All or Custom), and then select the Approvals Template.
From release 126.96.36.199, Groups can be assigned as owner for approvals.
And the Promotion Path can be displayed as Graphical from release 188.8.131.52
This view changed a little bit from 184.108.40.206, there're 4 kinds of view now. Process Status, Level status, Group Status and Tree View. We select the Tree View first.
Then all the planners can start planning and deal with the workflow process now. Ada is in PLN001_G1 and she's login now.
Click the Validate and shows "No additional Approval Required"
Click the Path, can show the promotion path and the Current Location
Click the "Change Status" to promote
So if there's error in the form, when you validate the Entity, it shows "Invalid Data" and cannot promote now.
Click Action: Launch Tasklist Wizard, it will link you to the form with error. Fix it and then you can promote.
If the validation rule's Approvals option is "Update Promotion Path", that means you can insert a reviewer in your preset promotion path
