    After the refresh button there will be one icon click that

    you can see personalize view

    you can set there whatever column youwant.

    in our case we have



    3.Sent Date

    4.due Date

    5. Status

    Each user can set according to the use.

    If you want the same set of column for all the users you have to help of ABAP and Portal team to set that

    POWL Layout Config will not help you to change the view of your approval Inbox. You need to take help from your portal team to do the iView Configuration for UWL.

    Ganesh, The issue with personalization is that is has to be done individually by each user, we have enough trouble training them to review the cart before approving it. I am looking for a solution for all users.

    Surender, we use the portal independent version of SRM 7.
