Notification

Definition

Data record that a user can use to inform an application area about a particular subject matter.

Use

You can use the notifications in the SAP System and on the Intranet to record and process various business-related information. The notification supports you with a number of functions that you can use to process this information. The most important of these functions allow you to:

·        Record problems or information

·        Define and execute tasks

·        Log activities

·        Record costs

·        Manage the status of notifications and tasks

·        Communicate with persons or departments affected by the subject matter

·        Evaluate notification data

Structure

In the SAP System, you can process notifications in a simplified or extended view. The structure of a notification differs on the basis of this processing view:

·        Notification structure for simplified notification processing

·        Notification structure for extended notification processing

If you have the appropriate authorization, you can switch between the simplified and extended processing view.
