      Hi Andreas!

      I was looking on managing Workforce data with MDI between S4HC and SuccessFactors, using scope item 4AF.

      Searching it in S4HC, it is not activated. "The 4AF scope item is only available for selected customers as part of an early adopter program and therefore excluded from standard activation."
      "If the scope item isn’t active, please request the activation via BCP – Ticket Component: XX-S4C-OPR-SRV."
      Can you recommend any fast way to have it activated? I logged an ticket, but I'm not expecting a answer any time soon.

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi Ward,

      as far as I know there is / has been a limitation in usage of scope item 4AF which I did not anticipate when writing my last comment. I am not quite sure what the official process is meanwhile. In case there is no general release yet, you indeed would need to request this via incident or similar customer portal. I am sorry about that.

      Thank you and kind regards,
