How to customize the PO release task description

Working on S/4HANA versoin 1511 using standard inbox (not Fiori).

I have been asked to alter the task description for TS20000166 to contain line item details from the purchase order. This may involve multiple item lines. IS this possible and if so how do I do this?

    What do you mean by standard inbox? Transaction SBWP???! That's not the standard inbox ... that's the original and now very ancient inbox. The standard inbox for S/4HANA is Fiori My Inbox.

    You would use work item description modification via SAPScript - which is done directly in txn PFAC. Enter the task in DISPLAY mode. Go to the Description tab and then use the Modify button to change the text. Use the menu option Insert Expression to insert details from the BOR object.

    Expect to be very limited in what you can do. Good luck.

    • Thanks Jocelyn. We have at this point decided not to implement Fiori due to the cost (I believe). Will continue to talk the users out of putting the PO content in the description !!

    I think the standard Fiori approve PO tile has item information already in it. You just need to activate it, assign business roles to users and presto!

    Kind regards, Rob Dielemans
