Approval required for PO prior to being able to print or email to vendor

Currently regardless of having approval maps for employees they are able to go in and print/email the PO to the vendor.  The point of the approval map is to have a Sr. Level person approve the PO prior to it's ability to be sent out.

    This is crazy. Whats the point of the approval if the PO can still be printed and emailed.

    I used the Automation Steps (SM205000) screen to change the menu behavior so that the Print Purchase Order capability was disabled for purchase orders in the Pending Approval status. I attached a screen image that shows the screen and highlighted the box that has to be checked. Keep in mind this only impacts workflow for a 'normal' order, you will have to also modify the steps for Drop Ship, Blanket, and Standard.

    We should discuss whether this should be set by default in the software when it ships.
