Adding 'Active Project' report page in workbench


I am trying to add a new page on the workbench that should display the 'Active projects' or say i want to display 'All projects' that we see in the project list.

i tried this through the workbench page in setup and tried adding a report but the buy side reports dont show 'All Projects' or 'my active projects', but shows lots of other reports on rfx,auctions, projects, etc so am not able to go ahead.

Is there a way out for this or frictionless doesnt support this?

    Hi Patsy,

    this is an out of the box functionality.

    Please replicate the following steps below to get a channel specifically to view your active projects, all that you need to do is select the default Workbench layout that is set for you and enable the attribute for viewing the projects in an exclusive way other than the standard reports from the reports channel.

    Please simulate as below

    1) Login to SAP E-Sourcing, click on set-up

    2) From the system set-up menu, select Workbench

    3) In the list of drop downs, first select the Desktop channel and click Ok, you are doing this step to see if the projects have been created as a desktop channel to be further selected for workbench page layout creation

    4) If it is available, just exit back to the set-up screen, itf it isnt created, then create it, on how to create, check how the existing channels have been created.

    5) If its available, for the workbench set-up, select drop down option "Workbench Page"

    6) You will see some default page, cleck on that hyperlink

    7) Click on the edit tab, then you will see two tabs below, "summary" and "Layout"

    8) Click on the Add to column 1 or 2 based on how your layout has been designed

    9) In the drop down you will see a desktop channel called Projects, select that and enable it

    10) Exit the application upon saving and login back, you will see the projects as a separate desktop channel.

    Let me know if this works, and do award points if it helps

      Hi Tridip,

      The actual issue was that these reports - My Active Projects, My Projects -All, My Project as owner , as collaborator which were in the project module were just query definitions with query groups. they werent defined as query reports. I just had to add the query defintion in a report and then i was able to see it in the buyer side reports of Workbench page. That resolves my issue.

      Thanks for your help. Appreciate it.

    Just to add to what i have written

    You can also Edit, Add or Manage the Desktop channels from the right hand top of the Workbench page itself, instead of navigating from the Set-up module.

    Note that Projects are a standard desktop cahnnel and can be added, even if you need some customised channels you can do so with some minimal development in the custom portal page
