This feature adds further enhancements to the order confirmation deviation approval in the multi-tier order scenario. The copy of the approval request document is always routed to the copy supplier.
If order confirmation deviation approval process is configured in the multi-tier scenario, the ship notice always fails in the copy supplier side because the order confirmation deviation approval document is not routed to the copy supplier. As a consequence, even when buyer has approved a deviation, the updated approval status is not reflected for the copy supplier, which causes the ship notice to fail.
With this feature, many customers who were interested in adopting the order confirmation deviation approval process, but were not able to do so because of the existing limitation in the approval request document routing, will now be able to allow their suppliers to confirm items out of tolerance and decide if they approve or reject the deviations.
