Failed Requests

If your request could not be sent when you executed Submit, you can examine the reason for the failure in your shopping cart. The reasons are marked with the icon you know already, in the Status column. For more information, see Shopping Cart.

To view the reason for a failed request

  1. Open Catalog | Shopping Cart and click Submit.
  2. Confirm the prompt Request cannot be submitted with OK.

    Icons are displayed for the products in your shopping cart in the column Status, which already indicate which product in your request is causing the problem.

  3. Mark the product with the icon and the note Missing required product in your shopping cart.

    Required products are listed in the detailed content view. Required products are dependent products. The action to run or information about how to proceed with each item is displayed respectively. For example, if a required product has already been requested and it can only be requested once, it is not possible to request it again. If the missing required product is still in the request, the action is provided.

  4. Click in the detailed content view to see information about product's whereabouts.

    This information is displayed in a dialog box. You can see exactly where your request currently is and who the approver is on the Workflow tab.

My Actions

The My Actions view is a submenu item of the Request menu. You can execute various actions, such as approve pending requests or handle request inquiries, depending on which entitlements you have been assigned. These actions can be called up over tiles.
