HCM Processes and Forms- "Back to Author" functionality not working in Quality Environment

Former Member

Hi Experts,

In my current we are implementing HCM Processes and Forms(Web Dynpro UI). Technical Environment : HR Renewals 1.0, SP 10.

We have requirement, that the approving manager can send back the form to the initiator, The initiator will receive the send back workitem in his/her UWL, make some changes to the form fields and again submit the form.

Now the manager will again open the form by clicking on the Workitem from his/her UWL and he will be able to see the new data that the initiator has edited.

This is working perfectly ok in Development system. We transported out developments in quality and its not working there.

The approving manager sends back the form, the initiator changes the data in the form...sends it. The approving manager again opens the forms and see the old data again. The data that was edited by the initiating manager is not reflecting.

THIS IS ONLY HAPPENING IN QUALITY.

Any idea guys..?

Thanks,
Saikat

Hi Sahir and Chris,

Thanks very much for your replies.

I have figured out what the issue was. It was a simple authorization issue.

I am closing this thread.

Many thanks,

Saikat

hahaha I told you! ...usually it comes down to some authorization problem. ALWAYS check that FIRST!

Glad it worked out for you.

eidt: oops! sorry...I had responded to another HCM P&F thread and listed things to check ...with auth. being the first as it is usually the one.

I am assuming you are using the "form edited by author again" task in your "loop" and not the regular "edit" task, correct? I would insure that your "agent determination" is correct. What does the error show you in workflow?

Hi Saikat,

Check if there are any differences between the workflow in QA and DEV.

Loop handling is documented here:
