How to change defaut approval for leave request

Dear all,

Currently we are using standard sap ess/mss whereby we default leave approval of the staff based on org unit- Head of org unit as approval. Issue :

1. Can SAP control ESS/MSS not to allow (to grey field approval ) user to change the approval fields?If yes, how to config this?

2. Instead of default Head of org unit as approval, can I skipped it to the another superior higher than him/her.For example i'm in org A. Org A under Support dept. I want to to set default approval for staff 2 level org unit above him/her.

3. For some leave ie Hosp leave, how to default approval to HR manager.

4.For project staff, can we put his supervisor as a approval.

5. I want to hide leave not to allow staff to see his mc balance only. How to config this.However, the staff stil apply via ess/mss to the approval.

TQ in advance

For each absence you can configure not to change this field, via V_t554s_web

ie settings

Requester May Change Next Agent

Specifies for each type of leave whether an employee can change the default approver or the person who is to be informed about the request.

2. Instead of default Head of org unit as approval, can I skipped it to the another superior higher than him/her.For example i'm in org A. Org A under Support dept. I want to to set default approval for staff 2 level org unit above him/her.

Rule group customisation doesnt allow this, you need to have a check in BADI PT_GEN_REQ

method IF_EX_PT_GEN_REQ~SEARCH_FOR_NEXT_PROCESSOR

3. For some leave ie Hosp leave, how to default approval to HR manager.

use a different WF for this leave and assign it in V_t554s_web, in WF you can default the HR manager directly !

4.For project staff, can we put his supervisor as a approval.

yes rule customisation or badi

5. I want to hide leave not to allow staff to see his mc balance only. How to config this.However, the staff stil apply via ess/mss to the approval.

you can hide the link via personalisation from portal
