I am wanting to delete an Approval Procedures.
Currently we have a 2 approval set for PO but at this time, we do not need it. Found that the PO's are hard to track. Any suggestions?

Dear Dayna L Woolsey,
Its not possible to delete an approval template in Business One when
transactions have been done using the Approval.
It is possible to remove different approval stages that are not
attached to any template but the person deleting them can not be an
originator or approver in the stages that are being deleted.
It is however possible to set the approval template as inactive by
clearing the checkbox "active".
In Business one , when using approvals templates
they can not be modified by the one of the originators/maunufatures.
If the system is set up using the manager as one of its originators
then the user 'manager' will not be able to modify the template.
This is logical as if you are an approver you should not be allowed to
This is the way the system is designed to work.
I hope this clarifies the behaviour in SAP Business One.
