2677049 - The Attendee Is Automatically Determined when Creating an Appointment Within the Customer Work Center

Symptom

You are creating an Appointment as a follow up from Account and by default the main contact is getting defaulted maintained either as Contact and Attendee on Involved Parties of Account, even though the determination for the Attendee Party Role is disabled on Fine-Tunning Activity.

Environment

SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customers work center.
  2. Go to the Accounts view.
  3. Open the account ABC (ABC represents the Account ID).
  4. Go to the Activities facet.
  5. Click on New button to create a new Appointment.
  6. Fill in the mandatory information.
  7. Click on Save and Open button.
  8. In the Involved Parties table the main contact of the account is maintained either as Attendee and Contact.

Cause

The Attendee will be defaulted with the main contact when creating Appointments from an Account/Contact work center. This logic is currently hardcoded, and not based on the fine-tuning determination for Attendee.

Resolution

This is the standard behaviour of the system.

If you need this functionality urgently you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center.
