    Hi,


    The editing and saving of the pdf file occurs outside of SAP, correct?

    In that case it makes more sense to model this step as a user decision, with an option like : - click here when the PDF file is changed and saved.

    Kind regards, Rob Dielemans

    • Hi,

      SBWP is not able to incorporate PDF opening, editing and saving. The technical hindrance that will always be present in your case is that you will need third party software for the editing of the file.

      I suggest to either alter the requirement or use forms in workflows with the same amount of information. That is the only way to keep data and changing of data within SAP.

      Kind regards, Rob Dielemans

    Hello

    As already mentioned you need a third party software for this. In our case we use archiving. In the first step of a workflow a PDF or another file is attached and archived (as BO IMAGE). Whenever user open the workflow they can add notifications to the PDF (as annotations or markings) and the IMAGE is updated.

    Kind regards

    • Sorry for the late answer.

      First of all we use OpenText software for archiving. As Rob mentioned SAP provides only the attachement list. In this list the PDF is archived and thought archive settings an external programm such as OpenText Imaging Viewer can be opened and in this viewer there are available notes. This notes are then storrend together with the PDF in the SAP archive and can be accessed thorugh the attachement list.

      Kind regards
