Adding field in MDG-F Change Request initial screen

Hi All,

We have a requirement to add a custom field on the MDG-F Change Request intial screen.

For example, when creating a profit center, there should be a custom field "Reference profit center" on the initial screen of the change request. When this reference profit center is provided by the user, then all the data from this should be copied to the new profit center. The user will then have the choice to change the data and submit the change request.

Can you please provide your inputs on adding the field on the initial screen of the change request. I observe that the UI is built dynamically when the change request is selected.

    Hi Praveen,

    the initial screen is a very generic one that cannot be changed as required. Nevertheless the desired functionaly is included in the entity search of MDG. You can search for existing profit centers and take a look at its data. You can use the Copy button to create a new profit center using the selected one as template.

    Best regards

    Hello Praveen

    What is the main purpose of adding reference field in PC? As per my understanding you are trying to copy the old PC data before creating new PC. Kind of dummy PC with few default values and then use that to create a new one.

    If this is the requirement then you can -

    1. Create a dummy PC - with a change request - add all the required default values.

    2. When you create a new profit center you can use create with reference in collective processing - Create PC. Give the reference of dummy PC so that data will be copied to new PC

    3. Using entity search as-well you can copy the PC. Use entity search - select the dummy PC - then use copy function.

    Please let me know if this solution is suitable for your requirement.
