    Hi Mahesh,

    You can only change a PMS template if no appraisal documents have been created with it. If they have, you need to copy it and use that template.

    In order to change a template, go to tcode PHAP_CATALOG, right-click your template and select Unrelease. Make the changes and then release it again.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Luke,

      We have successfully implemented this note in one of the implementations so i have advised this note. May be we need to be more careful while checking the feasibility of applying this note.

      I would also like to know the solution for this kind of requirements; it would help us to follow the standard system settings to avoid data discrepancies.

    Hi Mahesh,

    Scenario 1: If templates have been released and documents are created in same client then the templates cannot be released for changes(Standard Functionality)

    Scenario 2:If templates have been released and transported from DEV to QA and documents have been created in QA,the templates can be released in Dev and after making changes the same cam can be moved to QA or Prod via TR.

    Hope this clarifies.

    Thanks & Regards,

      With previous client, I used same solution as Sushil Soni suggested:

      Unrelease in DEV, make change, release and transport. The template (VA object) is the same you only add another relation (hrp1001).
