UWL Manage Substitutions


I am on EP 7.0 ECC 6.0 and having a problem when a manager wants to create a substitute for himself in the Portal UWL to approve Time and Expense .

When the user goes to Manage Substitution Rules-> Create Rule->Select the person to be the substitute .

Now when assigning the Tasks for the substitute the 4 options are :

Time Expense PCR and ALL

User wanted to have an option as: Time and Expense in the DropDown ..I added that by doing the configuration in SPRO there are 5 options but when the user selects the Expense only it is not working but when the user selects Time and Expense ..only Time entries are visible to the Substitute not the everything except Expense is working.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Hi Subash,

    I was under the impression that your problem was solved!!!

    Anyways coming to your issue

    <b>But when the user selects the Expense only it is not working</b>

    Is this happening only after you configured the "Time and Expense" profile? If yes then there might be some problem in the configurations. Would be better if you can let us know all the steps that you have done so far.

    If "Expense" is also a newly configured profile then may be your tasks are not classified under the right task classification. You need to classify your expense related tasks under the expense task classification that you have defined in SPRO. (Done in PFTC --> Additional data --> Agent assignment --> Maintain)

    One more thing can you try substituting a user with "Expense" profile directly from R/3 (in SBWP transaction). Check whether the Expense workitems are available for the substitute in this case. Similary try the case of "Time and Expense" also from R/3.

      Check for the task which is not getting substituted. In your case your expense tasks are not getting substituted right? So just check which is the task used for expense approval.

      Goto PFTC enter this task id and navigate to the task classificating using the path Additional data --> agent assignment --> maintain. Select you task and click on "Attributes" button. Here in the classification see the value available in the drop down. It shud be the expense classification that you have created in SPRO. Choose the appropriate classification for the expense task and save it.
