      Thank you Masa for the Excellent article and the Hands-on session at TechEd. This is a big value add-on to the Workflow folks that need to expose the approval tasks with simple configuration steps.

      Hi

      I attended the session in Las Vegas. It gave me a really good idea on how the application works and what is required when making the myinbox bette.r

      Thanks Masa for a great session.  It gives a good overview of what you can do.  Your attention to detail in creating the instructions really showed.

      I must be the only Fiori consultant who hasn't had a requirement for My Inbox yet, but when I do I will be ready!

      Hi Masayuki,

      I am trying to add detail to Information tab at step 3.2. I can see these fields in SBWP my inbox, but they are not showing up in Fiori My Inbox. My workflow is a custom workflow. Did I miss some key configure. Could you please suggest? thanks.

      Hi Masa,

      Thanks for your reply. I have done all these steps many times but still no luck.  The weird thing is even the workflow description is not showing up for me.

      Thanks,

      Tracy
