1574506 - Approval Task for Expense Report Sent to Cost Center Manager instead of Project Manager


You create an expense report and assign the cost to a project task in it. But the approver for the expense report is assigned to your cost center manager instead of the project manager.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Travel and Expenses work center.
  2. Select the Expense Reports view.
  3. Search and open the expense report XYZ.

In the Overview tab, the approver is maintained as your cost center manager instead of the project manager even the cost assignment of the receipt line is to the project task.


The system works as designed.


If the amount entered in the receipt line is zero or if no amount is entered, then the approver will be the cost center manager no matter whether the cost assignment is to the project task or not.
