Substitution Profile CollectionLocate this document in the navigation structure

This collection retrieves a specific, restricted data set for substitutes as opposed to retrieving all applicable data. In this way, the collection enables the user for whom substitution is required to define which tasks or data his or her substitute is to be responsible for the period of active substitution


Colleague A wants colleague B to act as substitute for some but not all of his or her tasks. For example, colleague B is to be responsible for shopping cart approval, while colleague C is to be responsible for leave request approval. Consequently, colleague A defines the substitution profile Shopping Cart Approval and assigns this profile to colleague B when creating the substitution. By assigning the appropriate substitution profile, colleague A can be sure that colleague B will see only the intended shopping cart approval tasks.
