Approve Service Entry SheetsLocate this document in the navigation structure

With the transactional app Approve Service Entry Sheets, you can view and approve pending service entry sheets (SES), or even reject approvals. The app enables you to quickly and efficiently process the approval of service entry sheets while away from your desk.

Key Features

The Approve Service Entry Sheets app enables you to:

  • View a list of only those service entry sheets that are approvable and for which you are responsible

    Note

    The system checks the authorization of the release code (M_EINK_FRG) in Customizing.

  • Easily approve your service entry sheets

  • Reject service entry sheets and enter a rejection reason in one step, but not after final approval

    Note

    When a service entry sheet is rejected, it is sent back to the previous approval step. Your rejection notes will be visible in the app to other approvers, and they can also be viewed in the back-end in the Attachment List in the Services for Object menu (Generic Object Service – GOS).

In addition, the app supports the following technical features and options:

Worklist

Within your worklist, you can:

  • Obtain an overview of each service entry sheet, including its description, creation date, value, creator, and service provider

  • Sort according to creation date, total value, and the creator’s name

  • Click on the responsible person to contact her/him by email or phone via business card

Service Header

Within the service header, you can:

  • View the information contained in the worklist overview for easy reference

  • Use the details offered in the information tab to assist you in making approval decisions

  • Access service entry sheet notes in form of generic object service texts (GOS), if available

    Note

    Notes can only be edited in the back-end in the Service for Object menu. Examples of commonly used notes are rejection texts.

    Note

    Attachments open in an additional viewer depending on your device configuration.

    • Below Plan (value lower than requested in purchase order item)

    • Above Plan (value higher than requested in purchase order item)

    • As Planned (value equal to requested in purchase order item)

  • View the information contained in the service line overview for easy reference
