purchase order workflow submit button

I have set up the Purchase Order Workflow from the Procurement and sourcing module.

i created a new purchase order to test the new workflow however the submit button is not displayed.

after some digging i found that the purchase order is being created with a document state of “approved”!!

this will prevent the workflow from starting.

any hints please.

Is change management turned on in the module? If it is are you allowing overriding vendor settings and therefore check the vendor?

Thanks Adam. Indeed it was a problem of enabling that parameter.


I’m a newbie with AX. I have the same problem, can you please help me out? I need an almost step-by-step procedure as I am relatively new with this. [:D]

Thank you in advance.
