      Are you attempting to set up a Workflow that goes to a group of people? We have found that a combination of the Areas of Responsibility and a couple extra Line Manager types helps us set up a workflow that works for us.

        HI Yanna,

        Thanks for your reply,

        We are trying to set a group of approvers by title (Sr. Directors for example) so the workflow will rout to them (any one of them) the stationaries invoice (for example) to approve it

          Unfortunately, most of my experience is with HCM. For the HCM side via Manage Approval, there is definitely that option to do it based on a title, but from our discussions with the Financial side, their approver options are limited in comparison--from what I quickly scanned, it looks like the Finance still has to go in on the back end to set up workflows. HCM has two options.

          I did find these documents. The first I think will be the most helpful and the second not so much.

            can you show me how to do it with HCM please?

            by the way this request comes from the HCM team :)

      Yasmin, you can create new "group approval" under BPM Worklist and add it to your workflow. Login in HCM > click the notifications bell > click Financial > click your username dropdown > Administration > click "Approval Groups" tab.
