In Release 3.0, SAP introduced the functions for master data maintenance and asset retirement using mass processing. In order to represent the organizational flow of these functions in the system, you needed to use R/3 SAP Business Workflow.
In Release 4.0, you do not need this organizational representation in SAP Business Workflow. Mass changes and mass retirements can be carried out directly by each R/3 user who has the necessary authorization. You no longer need to define the responible users in an organizational plan and assign them to the workflow tasks.
You can continue to use Workflow functions for mass processing in Asset Accounting, if you choose. No change has been made to the availability of these Workflow functions.
