Reproducing the Issue

The below is an example and can also happen for Previews in other objects.

  1. Go to the Activities Work Center.
  2. Open the Appointments View.
  3. Open appointment ABC (ABC is an appointment in the list).
  4. Click Actions.
  5. Click Generate Summary.

 You will receive the error message:

"Document cannot be generated; ADS rendering of SAP template failed."

"Output service processing error."


You will receive this error due the XML of the appointment is sending the value TRUE for this indicator field. In the form template this is an invalid value for the field with the property Integer.


We suggest to change or adapt the form template accord to be able to receive the True input.
