2036108 - Business Configuration Changes of Self-Approval of Expense Report


There was a scoping question of expense report self-approval in ByD release 1402. But there is no such question in 1405.

Reproducing the Issue

In ByDesign release 1402 you could configure the self-approval of expense reports following the steps below:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center and view Implementation Projects.
  2. Select the project and select Edit Project Scope.
  3. Select Next till steps 4, Questions.
  4. Expand Scoping Element Travel and Expenses, then Expense and Reimbursement Management.
  5. Select Approval Process, you can see a question as Allow approvers to approve their own travel documents in Country XYZ.

However, this question does not exist here in ByDesign release 1405.


The configuration of expense report self-approval has been moved from Business Configuration (BC) Scoping to an activity in BC Fine Tuning.


You can find it now following the steps below:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center and Implementation Projects view.
  2. Select the project and select Open Activity List.
  3. Search for activity Business Task Management for Expense and Reimbursement Management and open it.
  4. Select Edit self-approval settings. You can configure self approval of expense report here.
