Read the Description before upgrading and Click on the upgrade now
After the upgrade, if you want to use the existing templates, you must update them in Manage Templates so that they can be compatible with 360 Reviews – SAP Fiori Version. The completed or in-process forms that were created before the upgrade aren’t affected.
Navigate to Manage Templates> 360 Form
Step 1: Click “Print list of changes”. This is a mandatory step and will allow you to first print out and review all compatibility changes applied to your template.
In the 360 Fiori Version, some of the form template settings and form template elements aren’t supported. Thus, when you validate and update the existing 360 Reviews templates for compatibility with 360 Reviews – SAP Fiori Version, you might get a validation message that says certain elements will be removed from the template.
Step 2: Click “Update and Edit”. Most of the compatibility changes will occur automatically.
Step 3: Enter a new template name. Since this tool creates a copy of your existing template, you must provide a new name for your template to avoid duplicate naming. The description field is optional.
Step 4: Click “Approve for Launch.” This will make the template available for you to launch from “Launch Forms”.
Note: At this point, your form is technically available to launch, but given that it is a new template, you may need to make modifications to the route map, form template settings, or other configurations.

Please note the following before you undo the upgrade:
