Setting up Activity Groups

Use

You can set up an unlimited number of activity groups. A single activity can be included in many different activity groups, and an activity group can include many individual activities.

Prerequisites

Before you begin setting up activity groups, you should determine which activities belong in which group. You gather activities together in a group because they are related in some way.

Features

The main steps required to set up activity groups are:

  1. You must provide basic information to identify the activity group
  2. You must assign an abbreviation, a description, and a validity period. (You cannot assign a validity period in basic view.)

  3. You must select the reports and transactions that should be included in the activity group
  4. You make these selections using the main R/3 menu as a guide. You select the areas of the menu where the activities are accessed. The system recognizes which reports and transactions are required, and includes them in the activity group.

    There is a third, optional, step:

  5. You can select the Workflow tasks that should be included in the activity group

You make these selections using the business application component hierarchy. Certain tasks are associated with certain application components. When you select components, the system recognizes which tasks are required, and includes them in the activity group.

Activities

You can start Activity Group Maintenance in one of two ways:

When you start the Activity Group Maintenance transaction from Organizational Management, the overall view is the default view, while the assignment of the activity group to Organizational Management objects is disabled.
