 Processing Tasks Using Workflow


If a task is created in a notification or if the person responsible for a task is changed, the system can automatically notify the person or department responsible via the SAP Business Workflow that a task needs to be processed.

You receive the information about the task that needs to be processed as a work item in your inbox ( Business Workplace) . Your inbox provides an overview of all tasks that you are responsible for processing. You can begin processing the work item directly from your business workplace.


You can access your business workplace by choosing Start of the navigation path Office Next navigation step Workplace End of the navigation path from the SAP menu. Then choose Start of the navigation path Inbox Next navigation step Workflow End of the navigation path to display any work items that may be present.


The required system settings to activate the SAP Business Workflow have been made.


If there is a work item in your inbox, proceed as follows to begin processing the work item:

  • You double-click the work item to display a description of the task to be executed.

  • You choose Execute to process the work item. The system calls up the transaction to process the task.
