Managing a new employee’s probation process can be tricky. In this blog post I would like to share how we can automate such processes by SAP IRPA.
Prior sending notification through outlook Bot will get manager details by executing function module and fetching the data from PA0105 table.
Post that it will generate a report consisting Employee details and then will send the notification to their respective mangers.
