Learn how to exclude approver from FYI mails in Oracle Cloud Applications

Approvers of purchasing documents can receive FYI email notifications for documents. It happens when an employee is selected as a Requester in certain documents. Some approvers or employees may require not to receive such emails as these emails are FYI emails only.

In order to exclude the Approver (Employee) from the FYI mailing list, the Application Administrator needs to follow below steps.

First, the Administrator needs to define which FYI mails the approver does not want to receive. Is it a Purchase Requisition or is it a Purchase Order or Purchase Agreement? I will show you an example for Purchase Requisition, but if you want you can proceed with other documents as well. Setup is almost the same.

Navigate to Setup and Maintenance from Global header:

Select Setup:Procurement > Approval Management> Manage Requisition Approvals:

As you see, Requester FYI rule is enabled and active. Select the rule and click on Edit Rules:

Inside the rule, you will see a Rule that sends FYI emails to all Requesters of the document. Add Condition below and exclude the Approver who does not want to receive FYI emails. You can add several approvers if you need.

Save and Close. Deploy your work otherwise, the changes you have made will not be applied.

That is it, guys:) Hope you are clear with the topic. If not, please do not hesitate to reach me.
