Mass change for task lists and operations

Following the development of the common view for task lists and operations, we started working on another highly requested improvement: mass changes for task lists and operations. As you may know, there is already a mass change available for many objects in Plant Maintenance, but up until now, it hasn’t been available for task lists and for their operations.

We have now implemented the mass change functionality, so that you can change multiple selected task lists or operations at the same time, in a single step. Task list data as well as operation data is available for change and you can also use change numbers when executing the changes. Apart from general data, you may also change the internal data, external data, and the user data of the operations. Keeping the previous requirements in mind, customer-specific fields are also available for change.

As usual, background execution is available, when you want to make changes on a large number of task lists.


Mass changing the work center for multiple operations

The new functionality is available with SAP Note 3045910 or with the upcoming support packages of Enhancement Package 8 for SAP ERP 6.0 and SAP S/4HANA 1909, 2020, and 2021. You can enable the new functionality either by implementing the SAP Note or by installing the corresponding support packages, and switching on the business function Enterprise Asset Management Part 17 for the classical user interface.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the new functionality, so please comment if you have any questions!

      Are there any plans to expand this to include mass changes to the Component List and PRTs ?

      Dear Christian,


      You raise a valid request; the same question has come up during the implementation. Unfortunately, the current concept does not allow such changes, since we do not show the component or the PRT list for the task lists in the IA38 transaction. That was where we drew the line, the task list and its operations are shown, but the rest of the information can only be shown in some indicators, but not in its entirety, since that would result an even greater overload of information. Since the component and PRT information is not shown, we do not offer a mass change for it, nor was it planned for this customer connect development.


      I hope this answers your question. Do let me know if you have any further questions.

      Dear Francesco,


      I'm not sure I am aware of the Plant Status field. If this is a custom field, then the SAP Note 3045910 describes how to add it to the mass change.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.


      Best regards,
