E8.12 P4310 - Edit the purchase order after approval


VIP Member
There are some cases we need to revise the order after approval (for example, change cost account). And this will be sent for approval again.
But the problem is that, after approval the Last Status and Next Status will be changed, which will not allow users to change anything ( which is absolutely right).

So what is the best way to reset the status back so that the end user can change and after which she can send for approval ?

Hi richchipper,

Thank you very much.
Attached please find the activity rule. Can you let me know the set up based on this rules.

The status change request, most of the time, arises after the purchase order receipt. So we usually reverse the receipt, edit it and then re-issue the receipt.

The below post is explains the case in detail.
