So workflow is triggered.

Design is changed (modeled deadline)

No you want to change prior executed workitems.

Answer: You can't, workflow uses versions.

Work around: find out how workflow was triggered, logically delete existing workitems and retrigger to instantiate workflow with newest version.

Yes I agree with you but I am curiosity about FM ->


what is the purpose of this fm and how it works

thanks for your reply



When you have a deadline active you can manually change it by going to the workflow log, click your workitem then goto-->technical work item display

Then select Edit-->change

Now you have the option to manually click on change deadline service.

The function module does the same but programmatically,
