Useful Customisation tip for Notification Types

Introduction & Objective:

A client wants that Notification Tabs should appear selectively for Create (IW21), Change(IW22) and Display(IW23) views. For example,  he does not want to provide Catalog & Codes tab (10/Tab10) during Create Notification (IW21).

Once we know the configuration point in SPRO, where to do this, this requirement looks simpler. But, more work is involved here. This document, elaborates the same.

The SPRO configuration path for this:

/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/1_304581.jpg

During Tab Additions, the key field which produces the desired effect, is the Activity Cat.

/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/2_304582.jpg

Please note that the ‘H – Add’ means Create and relates to IW21 screen.  Similarly ‘V – Change’  and  ‘A – Display’  options relate to IW22 and IW23 screens respectively.

Now suppose a Notification type has the requirement for 3 main pages viz.,

10/Tab01 – Notification 1

10/Tab07  –  Dates

10/Tab10 – Catalogs & Codes

We know that 10/Tab10 will have sub tabs declared 20/Tab01, 02, 03, 04.

The following is the Tab strip Overview in the SPRO, where no special conditions are required. Here we see the Activity Cat.field is blank.

In this Configuration, all tabs will be visible in all stages (IW21, IW22, IW23)

/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/3_304625.jpg

Now let’s see, the Configuration as per our clients requirement, where Catalogs & Codes Tab not to be seen in ‘Create’ phase.

/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/4_304626.jpg

What we see here is for one simple condition, a number of line items added into the ‘Tab strip Overview’.

This is because,

When we specify a value V in Activty Cat. Of 10/Tab10 (desiring to have this tab in change mode), all other tabs in change mode disappear. (10/Tab01, 10/Tab10).

So to restore them as per our requirement, we need to repeat these Tabs with different values of Activity Cat. (H, V, A as the case may be) .

In Detail:

  1. We want the Header Tab (10/Tab01) in all modes Create, Change, Display (IW21, IW22, IW23) modes. So we need to create this entry 3 times with values H, V and A.
  2. We want the Dates Tab (10/Tab07) in Change and Display (IW22, IW23) modes only, so we had this 2 times with values V and A
  3. Like-wise we want the Catalogs & Codes Tab (10/Tab10) also in Change and Display (IW22, IW23) modes only, so we had this 2 times with values V and A.
  4. Here note that all the sub tabs (20/Tab01,02,03,04) of Catalogs & Codes Tab, had also to be created 2 times with values V and A to match with their Parent tab (10/Tab10).

Now let’s see the resulting screens:

Create Notification (IW21)

/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/5_304630.jpg

Change Notification (IW22)

/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/6_304631.jpg

Display Notification (IW23)
/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/7_304632.jpg

(We know that Catalogs & Codes tab would appear in Display i.e., IW23, only when it has some content in its inside tabs.)

Like-wise we can customize deeply in this area as per need.

The Author recently was replying in detail, about the topic discussed here in an SCN thread, and felt that  forum will be benefited if this is documented .

Thank you

      Hi Wank ash,

      Thank you, you Liked the Document.

      Similar configuration facility has not been given Orders. But through Tcode SHD0 We should be able to achieve this. Only difference will be we then have a ZTcode for Orders, like ZIW31.

      See this link for such a tutorial on SHD0  Transaction Variant.

      Here modification of First screen discussed. You can customize inside screens also (Screen-variants), in this.

      Actually, there is something similar available for PM orders, though it is not ideal and I've never actually used it on a project.

      SPRO

      > Plant Maintenance and Customer Service

      >> Maintenance and Service Processing

      >>> Maintenance and Service Orders

      >>>> Functions and Settings for Order Types

      >>>>> Basic Order View

      You can configure View Profiles for orders here and assign them to plant-specific order types with options for Add, Change or Display.

      Hope this is helpful.

      Another good piece of information.  With this you open up a lot of possibilities for unique notification actions. Not sure that  I would like my customer to know about all the possibilities, but, still very good to keep in mind 🙂
