Adding or Removing Master Data Objects (Entities) to Be Changed

You can add master data objects to be changed to the change request or remove master data objects from the change request.

Calling Other Functions for Master Data Objects

When you have selected an object, you can directly start the single processing of an entity for that object or you can go to Related Services and access the respective change documents, where-used list, workflow log, or replication log. When you select multiple objects, you can run a mass change for those objects.

Adding Comments and Other Information

You can add comments and files or hyperlinks to additional information to a change request.
