    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.

    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.
