We would like to implement workflow based on the hierarchy of the employee with value.
For example A is an employee who reports to B (Manager), B reports to C (Director), C reports to D (Vice President), D reports to E (SMT) and E reports to F(CEO). There is one more person who is G (CFO).
A-> B-> C-> D-> E-> F As per employee hierarchy.
A-> B-> D-> E-> G As per expenses approval matrix which is also based on amount of claim.
Approval matrix is as under.
1st approval by always Manager which is B
2nd approval by always Vice President which is D, only when claim value is upto 5000
3rd approval by SMT which is E, when claim value is > 5000 but < 10000
4th approval by CFO which is G, when claim value is more than > 10000
Also would like to inform you that for each department/Function (HR/Finance/Legal etc.) there is One SMT and more that one VP and all are having in the same cost centre of that function, so we are also not able to use cost object approver in such scenario.
Would you please give me the solution to implement this matrix in Concur Expeses ?
@sunilrathod If I may ask you a question here...are you already fully implemented and live using SAP Concur? I'm asking because this type of workflow requirement is usually discussed during your implementation and set up by SAP Concur so you would be ready to go live.
Can you provide a little background information here, please?
By the way, the workflow you want is a tad complicated. Do you have access to modify workflows? We don't give this permission out unless someone has taken our Advanced Configuration class.
I'll await your reply.
@KevinD Hi Kevin,
Yes, we are live with the concur system. At the time of initial configuration our approval matrix was simple, just approval of line manager was required and then its processed by the finance team, but now we have new matrix, which I mentioned in my mail. Based on the advice, we implemented cost object workflow, but now problem are more in approval, having more that one approver in the same cost centre, even approving line manager is on the upper hierarchy than the cost object approver, so it look odd to get it approved by cost object approver who is junior in position.
I have admin access, but I never tried to change workflow, except chaning cost object approver.
I would like to know what is the solution for this.
Let me know if you require any other details.
@sunilrathod I think your best option is to reach out to your SAP Concur Client Success Manager to get your workflow changed. Your workflow is a bit complicated and most likely will need to be looked at by an SAP Concur Implementation person. Since you have already gone live, you'll need to work with your Client Success Manager to see what steps are involved to get this accomplished.
@KevinD Thanks for your support, but still our consultant believe that its not possible to implement this workflow and which is strange for me. This type of require must be there in other companies, but concur doesn't have that solution.
The problem sounds straightforward, so there must be more involved here. I have some questions:
@belindaz please find below my answer to your question. Let me know if you require any other details.
