PO pending and approved alerts

We found a similar need so I created a BAM for the PO once it is
approved (triggering off the approvalstatus field):

{ud/GlbAlert.i &TableName = "POHeader"}

if (POHeader.ApprovalStatus = "A") then do:

ASSIGN Email-Text = "Purchase Order Number: " + string(POHeader.PoNum) +


" has been approved.".

ASSIGN Email-Subject = "Purchase Order Approval for " + POHeader.Buyer.

ASSIGN Email-To = "put your e-mail address here if you know it otherwise
you can pull it out of the Buyer table".

END.

else Return "Cancel Send":U.

Return.

Unfortunately you can't create a BAM for the approval table so I use
Access to send out e-mail which I run once a day.

Subject: [Vantage] PO pending and approved alerts



Does anyone know if you can setup alerts that:

1) When a PO exceeds the buyers limit and needs to be approved, sends
an email to the APPROVER telling them they need to check for a PO to
approve.

2) When a PO is approved or rejected, sends an email to the BUYER
telling them that PO number XXX has been approved / rejected.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Yes, but it's not for the faint of heart.
You will need to learn some Progress programming, and spend some time
creating the logic. That being said, I have done similar and could be of
some assistance if you decide to move forward. You will also want to be on
6.1 patch 518. You will build it in the procedure writer, and trigger it
using the Business Activity Manager.
Good luck,
