Adding Process Specific Due Dates

Introduction

Additional custom Due dates can be defined in the SAP Connector. A due date checks the difference between the Actual date of the event and the Expected date of the event. To create a proper due date, you must define both the Actual date and the Expected date for the due date. Optionally you can specify a Due date amount and/or a Time bin.

Actual date

The actual date is the event end of the activity related to the due date. You must create a record expression which looks for the event end of the activity related to the due date.

Expected date

If the expected date of a due date per activity is not known, you can calculate it based on other fields. You must create a record expression that determines a certain date of an activity, for example Approve invoice) and calculate the expected date, for example by adding a number of days to the approve invoice date.

Due date amount

The due date amount is often referring to a penalty or a discount. Optionally, you can create an expression to specify a due date amount in the Due_dates_preprocessing table.

Time bin

The time bin is a description indicating whether the due date was met on time or not.
Optionally, you can create an expression to specify a time bin in the Due_dates_preprocessing table.
