In this tutorial we will try understand what are different types of task in SAP Workflow.
Basically there are two categories of task
- Single-step Task
- Multistep Task
Types of Tasks are
|Task Type||Task Category||Prefix||Cross Client||Client Specific||Validity period|
|Standard Task||Single Step||TS||X||No/Unrestricted validity period|
|Customer Task||Single Step||T||X||Validity period exists|
|Workflow Template||Multi-Step||WS||X||No/Unrestricted validity period|
|Workflow Task||Multi-Step||WF||X||Validity period exists|
Task Groups : We create Task Group to collect tasks or simply a repository of tasks.
Within SAP Workflow we create only cross client, single-step task (Standard Task) and multistep task(Workflow Templates).
Definition of a Task : Task is an activity that can execute independently or within in workflow.Activity can be SAP system transaction code like ME54N,QM02 etc.. and this activity is performed by the users/agents. The agents for a particular task can be determined using rules.
Transaction code related to Tasks are PFTC, PFTC_INS, PFTC_DIS, PFTC_CHG and PFTC_DEL.
