Work status function in BPC 10.0

Hi All,

I have two questions regarding Work status in BPC 10.0 (MS Version):

Question 1: Is owner or manager the only person can input the data when we enabled the work status? What if we didn’t specify any users in the column of owner or manager, and then is it no one can input the data? (Please see figure 1)

(Figure 1)

Question 2: It seems that the work status has been automatically started after updating the work status option in BPC administration Console. Is there any way we can disable the work status function?

    Hi Ivan,

    1. it depends on the work status settings. In your environment work status settings you define the users that can make changes.

    ALL means all users that have access (via their security settings) to an entity, even if they are not the owner or the manager. OWNER means only the owner, MGR means only the manager and LOCKED means no-one can change data.

    Not specifying an owner for any entity mainly means that the work status cannot be changed, since it is only the owner or the manager that can do so.

    2. You cannot disable the work status but you can set it up so that it doesn't affect anything in the system. You also do not have to use it, simply do not give your users the right (security) to change it.
