The present post is in continuation of the above posts and going through them will give convenience in understanding the present post.

Setting Up Notification of Successful Posting

The ALE/EDI interface can be set up to raise an event when an IDoc posts successfully. This option is provided in the settings for an inbound process code. We can attach a single−step task or a work flow to be started when the event is raised.

We have to follow three steps here for that sake.

1.Identify the application object created by the IDoc. You can view the setting in table EDIFCT or execute transaction WE57. A link is defined between a message, a business object, and the function module.

2. Identify the event in the application object that needs to be raised.

3.Execute transaction BD67, select the process code used for the inbound process, and go to the details.
In the application object, enter values for the Object Type and Start Event fields, as identified in Step two.

4.Identify an existing task, or create a new task or work flow that should be started based on the event.

5.Define the event linkage between the event and the work flow. You can also perform this step from the task itself by activating the triggering event.

Connecting the SAP Inbox to a MAPI−Based E−Mail Client

When using workflow, you might want to receive work items through your company's regular e−mail system. The ability to do so is useful to infrequent users of the system who don't want to log on to the SAP system and view their work items on a daily basis. These users can view their work items via their regular e−mail system if the e−mail system is MAPI−compliant.

SAP Labs, a subsidiary of SAP AG, has developed a MAPI connector to link the SAP Inbox to a MAPI−based client such as Microsoft Outlook or Exchange.

During the installation process, the system records the SAP server name, client number, user ID, and password for the SAP system. This information is used to automatically log on to the system to retrieve work items for the e−mail client on a periodic basis.

After the software is installed, a new folder for SAP is created in the e−mail client Inbox. You can click this folder to view the work items. No settings have to be made on the SAP system. Work items continue to reside in the SAP system as well. When a work item is executed, the system automatically logs on to the SAP system and takes you to the screen you normally use when you execute a work item from the SAP Inbox.

Changing Work Item Text

The work item text that appears in the user's Inbox can be customized to the needs of users. This modification is considered a customizing change and will be supported on upgrade. For that

1.Using transaction PFTC_CHG, go to the task for which the text needs to be modified.

2.Choose the Change button

3.Change the work item text to suit your needs. The text can include substitution parameters from the workflow container fields. Put an ampersand in the text, and click the Insert Variables button to select parameters from the container.
