    Title:
    BPM Notification Page
    Summary:
    Add Ad-hoc Approval in BPMNotification Page
    Content:

    Requirement:

    Invoice creator should able to add ad-hoc approval for a particular invoice.

    In Invoice Approval task configuration, enabled "Allow participants to edit future participants" and "Allow Initiator to add participants" flags.

    I found the below published note in Metalink:

    Not Able To Add Approvers In The Approval List Either As Creator Or Approver (Doc ID 2212650.1)

    Solution mentioned here:

    Please follow the below steps for the initiator to add participants.
    - Modify the seeded rules such that number of levels is greater than 1.
    - Open Invoice in BPMNotification page. Select the Approver from approver list except the first one and click on Add Assignee Button.
    - Add User Name, and select appropriate position for new Assignee, and then click on Ok button.
    - Now you can see the new Assignee in the List and then click on Apply button

    My Question:

    1. Why there is a separate page to perform this activity? Does it sounds logical that a user entering 100+ invoices in day will go to this page to find which invoice he / she has to add an ad-hoc supplier. Why the user can't perform this at 'Create Invoice' screen itself.

    2. How the user will navigate to 'BPMNotificication Page'

    3. The approval notification get generated only if user submits it for approval and as per rule it picks the correct approval. How the user can make sure that he will select the correct ad-hoc supplier even before submitting the invoice for approval.

    I don't know whether it is silly question, but I don't find it user friendly.

      I am agreeing with you Manish as it is very difficult to create more invoices as mentioned above.
