    Requisition Re-assignment when assignee is on vacation
    Currently Vacation Rules are available for use in BPM/workflow. Is there functionality that would forward a requisition that is reassigned to a new preparer if the assignee is on vacation?

    We have a business process where requesters reassign requisitions to preparers that are responsible for adding the accounting information to the requisition prior to submitting for approval.  If the preparer is on vacation, is there a way to have the reassigned requisition to an alternate preparer.  This would be similar to the vacation delegation functionality in approval workflow.

      Dear Ashok,

      do we need to schedule this Update Preparer and Requester report on daily basis until the replacement is required?

      Hi Farooq

      I am not sure I follow the question. You would only run this process at a certain point in time when you have decided you need to update these details on requisitions. Not sure there is a need to run this every day.
