Creating a Reason


After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Explain what a Reason data object is in SAP Fieldglass.
  • Navigate a Reason admin object.
  • Describe how to create a Reason data object in SAP Fieldglass.


Whenever an action is taken on an item within SAP Fieldglass, such as closing a document or rejecting an item submitted for approval, a Reason must be selected.

Reasons are created and maintained to allow companies to provide acceptable justification for taking specific actions on records and documents. They provide consistency in reporting and allow you to analyze data more effectively.

A reason must be selected when closing a job posting so that the justifications for the action can be logged and tracked.

Navigating the Reason Admin Object

Select the Reason admin object from the Configuration section of the admin menu to view a list of reasons associated to WorkingNet’s tenant.

Create a Reason

WorkingNet’s Program Office wants to add a reason for rejecting a job posting when a change in a project has occurred and a worker is no longer needed.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you will create the reason.
