I suggest adding one option to Stock Setting to select the status of the [AUTO MATERIAL REQUEST] section.
If ticked [Raise Material Request when stock reaches re-order level]
user can choose the status of the created material request if [Draft/Submit] depends on business needs if the stock planners should review and amend the suggested quantities to avoid seasonal and sudden demands calculated in Projected Quantity, or process the suggested quantities as-is without changes
depends on the selected option, the code of file [reorder_item.py] located at path [frappe-bench\apps\erpnext\erpnext] will be changed to consider the line [mr.submit()] or not
Looking for your appreciated feedback
Thanks | Regards,
