    refer this thread

    You can do so via filtering or classification of tasks

    read here

    You will need to enable the support information in order to get the

    associated task number that corresponds to the backend task.

    If you wish to hide certain tasks, the easiest way to do it is to

    redirect the task type that you want to hide to some unused item type.

    You can create your own XML file and give

    each task number its own entry in the XML

    They each need to be given a different item type name. They can't

    all be directed into the same item type since there would be

    multiple conflicting definitions for that item type in the file.

    No view definition is needed, you can just give it a garbage

    defaultView name (HiddenView).

    I have attached an example for you in the attachment area. This is

    stored as a text file. Also,

    Where you see the following:

    systemId="<YOURSID>" externalType="<YOURTASK>" in the XML, this

    obviously needs to be replaced with your sid and your task id which

    you are looking to exclude.

    For ex

    For example, if it is the following task pasted below:

    <ItemType name="uwl.task.webflow.TS01000096.SAP_R3_MUS"

    connector="WebFlowConnector" defaultView="DefaultView"

    defaultAction="launchSAPAction" executionMode="default">

    If you were trying to hide this, you would write it in the XML file

    as follows:


    <ItemType name="uwl.someHiddenType1"

    connector="WebFlowConnector" defaultView="HiddenView">

    <ItemTypeCriteria systemId="SAP_R3_MUS"

    externalType="TS01000096" connector="WebFlowConnector"/>


    ***************And for the next one:*********************

    <ItemType name="uwl.someHiddenType2" connector="WebFlowConnector"


    <ItemTypeCriteria systemId="SAP_R3_MUS"





    You can arrange tasks and workflows into various classes within the SAP

    System. The classes professional, personal and disciplinary are

    standard. The system checks the task class under the field name

    TASK_CLASS in the authorization object S_WF_WI. This system uses this

    authorization object to check the authorization for carrying out

    specific actions on particular work items. The assignment of tasks to

    classes is also important in the definition of substitutes. You can

    also define that only those classes are displayed which refer to tasks

    or workflows of a particular class. Take this into account when you

    create new classes and assign tasks or workflows to the classes.

    You can set this classification via:


    => IMG

    => Basis Components

    => Business Management

    => SAP Business Workflow

    => Basic Settings

    => Maintain Task Classes.

    Once the classification has been added as above you can then add this to

    your task. Goto PFTS => Enter task ID => Change Mode => Menu: Addition

    data => Classification.

    [2] Substitute Profile

    You can define one or more substitutes for working with the Business

    Workplace. The authorizations of a substitute are determined by the

    substitute profile which you assign to him/her when you set up the

    substitution. A substitute profile comprises specific task classes.

    Task classes describe individual tasks or standard tasks. This

    assignment is made in the task definition. A user you have specified

    can then log on as your substitute. "Your" work items are displayed to

    the substitute in their Business Workplace with the restrictions

    resulting from their substitute profile.

    You can set the substitution profile via:


    => IMG

    => Basis Components

    => Business Management

    => SAP Business Workflow

    => Basic Settings

    => Substitute Profile

    => Define Substitute Profile
