Dear community,

We are excited to highlight some of our most comprehensive product features released this year!

SAP Build Process Automation streamlines business processes and improves efficiency, incorporating workflow management, RPA, decision management, process visibility, and embedded AI capabilities. With benefits like improved productivity and team collaboration, SAP Build Process Automation leads to faster decision-making and higher business profitability. And the best part? You don't need coding expertise for it. Check out what is new with this month's release.

Release Highlights:

Process Forms & UI

Adding Timed Wait to a Process

From minutes to months, you can now add a timed wait step to a process to control how long the process should wait or pause before continuing. For example, suppose an employee needs to complete a mandatory training session before starting their job. In that case, HR administrators can add a timed wait to the onboarding process that waits until the training session is completed before moving on to the next task. Learn more in Add a Timed Wait to a Process.

Work on Tasks in SAP Task Center

Improve your process participants' experience with this enhanced integration to SAP Task Center. You can now receive and work on SAP Build Process Automation tasks and forms seamlessly alongside other SAP applications by embedding your My Inbox into SAP Task Center.

How to set up your subaccount for SAP Task Center:

Customize Form Button

This highly anticipated feature update provides you with more control and customization options. You can now customize the outcome button when creating Approval/Submit forms to your liking. For forms, the default Submit button can now be changed to Next, Send, or Custom text. For approval forms, you can adapt the default Approve button to Accept or Custom text and the default Reject button to Decline or Custom text.

Filter Entries in Forms

Selecting an entry in a form field with many possible entries is now easier! In a form, you can filter the records loaded in the dropdown by simply typing into the field. A filter field appears If there are more than 12 values in the dropdown list. You no longer need to search for the entry manually. For instance, when managing customer material information, selecting a customer number is necessary, and this new feature simplifies the process.

Add Tables to Forms

We're excited to highlight this feature that will elevate form creation for business users: Tables. You can create tables within your forms and add field types like columns, including text, number, date, and checkbox fields. You may also choose whether it is read-only or editable. Thanks to this table support, you can further streamline the data collection for use cases like Purchase Orders or Requisitions with multiple line items.

Process Orchestration & Automation

Add API Triggers to Automation

Now, you can easily add an API trigger directly to your automation and export it with your project, eliminating the need for manual setup post-deployment. With just a few clicks, you can create and customize your API trigger by adding a name and description, editing its settings and attributes, and viewing its input schema - all in one place.

Enhanced Document Information Extraction Template Creation

Exciting news! We've made creating and managing Document Information Extraction Templates easier with enhanced usability and an improved wizard. You can create new templates from scratch or import them from external sources. Plus, you can easily add templates to your project from Automation and select the schema and template for extraction. Importing templates from DOX into your project is also easier and faster now.

Support Mode for Agent 3

Desktop Agent 3 now features a support mode that lets you easily install a specific version of the agent or record traces. To activate support mode, have the ProcessAutomationAdmin role and follow a few quick steps in SAP Build. Once activated, you can choose a duration of 1 hour to 5 days and enjoy the benefits of support mode. For more information, see Activate Support Mode.
