Disable of e-mail notifications for offline approval

There is no option to turn off the offline approval mail for users who are using other approval modes. For e.g. Fiori Approval.


Manager will be able to disable offline e-mail notifications for approval of business objects. In personal settings screen a new section Disable E-mail notification is introduced. User can disable E-Mail notification for offline approval for the following business objects:

     Shopping Cart

     Purchase Order



     RFx Response

Manager can select the business object type for which the e-mail notifications are to be disabled.

For example, If the user is using other approval mechanism, such as Fiori Purchase Order Approval App, then the user can use this feature to disable E-mail Notifications for offline approvals  of purchase order.

Administrator will also be able to disable e-mail notification for users.


To use the feature, you have to first activate the Business Function SRM_CONT_IMPR_3 and then activate the Customizing switch Disable Offline Approval of E-mail Notifications(SRM_703_OFF_APPR_RESTR_BO) under SRM Server->Cross Application Basic Settings->Business Workflow->Activate/Deactivate Disable Offline Approval of E-mail Notifications .
