    Title:
    How to do approvals without HR
    Content:

    I'm currently looking it a client that wants to implement Procurement but not will not be using HCM. How would one go about creating approvals for Procurement documents without access to HR? Can someone point me to a support document or white paper that might outline how this is possible?

    Here is the link Ashish is referring to. I just find it easier to get to the link directly Ashish :).

    Also our development experts on approvals had the following to say:

    Approver can be any user in system as long as it exists in LDAP. Without HCM, customer can not use any hierarchical routing for obvious reasons. We can define users in security console (not in HCM) and use them as approver. I have never tried this, so would recommend to try it out once before we communicate to customer. 

    This seems to compare favorably to the note Ashish published. Could you try this and let know what you find?

      When you say, they don't plan to use HCM, you are then referring to creating approvals with the approvers just as users and not employees in HCM? Can you clarify what the business requirement is here?

        Ashok,

        I guess I'm looking for what the options are. There are no plans to use HCM so there wouldn't be employees or a supervisor hierarchy. The requirements are they want Procurement and and require approvals but are not planning to purchase or invest any time/energy/money in configuring HCM.

        Thanks
