The monitor of the Schedule Manager is a tool for processing multilevel worklists. It contains information on active or completed jobs that were planned in the scheduler.


This section provides information on using the object list in the monitor of the Schedule Manager.

For more information on jobs in the monitor, see Using the Monitor .

The monitor performs the following functions:

  • Displays the available worklists and their processing steps

  • Keeps track of the processing status of each object (such as product cost collectors, WBS elements, internal orders, and production orders) and each processing step

  • Assists you in analyzing the causes of errors for the objects and processing steps

  • Displays the processing status of objects (particularly for the objects with errors)

  • Shows the hierarchical relationships between the objects

  • Compares object hierarchies with each other

  • Controls whether objects enter the next processing step

  • Sends objects to the responsible person for further processing

You can set the processing status so that objects of negligible value, for example, are not reprocessed in a processing step even if errors are issued for the objects in that step. In this case, it is not necessary to remove the cause of the error.

The monitor is divided into the following screen areas:

Structure Tree with Worklists/Processing Steps/Jobs

The structure tree containing the worklists, processing steps and jobs is displayed on the left side of the monitor.

In the system, the worklists are updated separately for each scope of selection and processing step sequence. The processing step sequence is specified in the flow definition. You can view the worklists of the application component in which you are working, including their functions and objects.

The system displays the following information on each worklist:

  • Number of objects in the worklist

  • Processing steps

  • Number of objects processed in each processing step

  • Number of objects with errors in each processing step

Object List

The object list is located in the top right area of the screen. The object list can display one or more processing steps of a worklist. You select the processing steps in a worklist in the structure tree worklists/processing step s/ jobs .

The object list includes the following information:

  • The objects for the selected processing steps. You can control which objects are displayed for each processing step by means of a filter that takes the individual processing statuses into account. In application toolbar icons for object list , choose the icon Objects : Set status filter

    The system uses the last user-specific default setting of the dialog box. Note the default settings of this dialog window in the SAP standard system. The last user-specific setting of the dialog box is the default.

  • The processing step performed for the object

  • The processing status of the object for each processing step

  • A check box you can select to indicate that you have processed the object in the worklist monitor

  • The person responsible for the object (if any)

Message List

The message list is located in the lower right-hand portion of the screen. The message list displays messages for certain objects. You can use these messages to analyze the causes of error for each object and processing step.
