How to set up follow up when using SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1 to send email

Former Member

Hi Every experts,

My client wants to send an external email from SAP with follow up function. For example, the receiver should process the email within 2 hours after receiving it, otherwise, pop up a reminder message in microsoft outlook.

Can we use function modules SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1 or SO_OBJECT_SEND to do it? How to do it? Is there any example?

Hi Shirley,

I was able to accomplish this by setting an Outlook appointment from ABAP to the intended recipient(s) (email addresse(s)).

See this link:

All you have to do is set the date/time of the appointment to the time you would like the reminder to pop-up (note: the recipient does not have to "accept" the meeting, it will still "remind" them of it on the date/time that you specify).

If you have found another way please do let us know as well.

Thank you,
