Show custom task description in Approve Purchase Orders Fiori app


Hello experts,

We have implemented Approve Purchase Orders Fiori app in our landscape. The app is working fine and we are able to approve/reject PO work items successfully.

The PO work item in the back end Inbox shows a description as shown below:

Description

Please approve purchase order <PO_Number> created by <User_Name> for Cost Center <Cost_Center>.

But the Approve PO Fiori app does not show this description by default.

My question is can we have the Fiori app pick up this description by implementing the enhancement spot GBAPP_APV_PO in the back end system and show it in the Approve PO app?

Regards,

Saurabh

    Hi Saurabh,

    You just need to extend the UI view and include the <PO_Number>, <User_Name> and <Account Assignment> in the S2 view which is the left hand side master list.

    • Hi Saurabh,

      All key values are in Approve Purchase Order app.  Difference is just long description or independ field. So I feel including the workitem description does not help a lot.

      If it helps a lot, off cause you can include those by using UI extension point as I mentioned before.

      I would implement email notification which has workitem long description and include the link for the Fiori app instead of including the description in the app.

    Hi Masa & Tejas,

    Thanks for your valuable inputs!

    In our case showing the workflow description on the Fiori app screen was important because it showed certain details like previous approvers which are not displayed in the standard Fiori app.

    We have achieved this by first extending the OData service GBAPP_POAPPROVAL to include the workflow description and then extended the SAPUI5 app MM_PO_APV to include the description field on the UI screen.

    Regards,

    Saurabh
