Request for Budget Increase in the Intranet

Use

You want to request a budget increase for an order, network, network activity, or WBS element.

You do not know which person in your organization can approve your request.

Features

There are two different scenarios:

·        Request for Budget Request (scenario SR61)

The form is sent to a processor, who changes the budget.

The processor executes the budget transactions in the system.

·        Request for Budget Request with Approval (scenario SR62)

The form is sent to a manager for approval.

The recipient is determined as follows:

Ў        If you entered a person, that person is notified.

Ў        If you did not specify a person to approve the request, the system notifies the person defined in Customizing as responsible for the budget or WBS element.

Ў        If you did not enter a person to approve the request and no one is defined in Customizing as responsible for the budget or WBS element, the person is determined based on the role.

The person responsible approves the request. The person who processes the request is selected based on the role in Customizing, and is notified through the workflow.

For more information on customizing scenarios, see the Implementation Guide (IMG) under Cross-Application Components ® Internet / Intranet Services ® Internal Service Request ® Scenario Definition ® Define Scenarios, or the SAP Library under Cross-Application Components ® Internal Service Request.
