Mobile time recording and manager approval notifications in SAP Business ByDesign Cloud ERP

ByD Mobile Icon

With SAP Business ByDesign 21.05 the ByD Mobile app will support time recording and also introduce push notifications for manager approval requests:

  1. The manager approvals tile now shows the number of open approvals and the lock screen and notifies the user if new items come in
  2. Mobile time recording is no built-in and offers the same capabilities as the stand-alone app.
  3. Mobile time recordings can also be based on service order items. Like in the desktop, service confirmation based time recordings are now visible and adjustable in the mobile app.
  4. Time recording with pre-delivered extension fields as well as country/region and state. You can show them using the personalization mode.

This capability has been requested by three customer influences with more than 35 votes:

To enable the push notifications and allow the time recording app to access your calendar you need to enable your app as follows:

  1. Allow the app to access your calendar:
  2. Allow the app to send notifications while installation:
  3. Configure your push settings on your smartphone:

      Thanks Jan for the details. Is this functionality open to Android mobile phones as well? I was not able to get notifications on approvals for POs and Supplier Invoices although I enabled notifications for the SAP ByD Mobile app on my device.

      Hi Eytan,

      yes, it is available also on Android. Please check first if the approvals are correctly setup to reach your user e.g. by doing it on the Desktop. If you still face issues don't hesitate to create a ticket.
