This document explains how you connect activities to a service. An activity could, for example, be extra education that is required before a service can be performed, new equipment that needs to be installed or different kinds of approvals.
Use this activity when you have extra activities that need to be completed before a service may be performed.
One or more user-defined activities are connected to a defined service. The service status cannot be raised to definite (Sts 20) before all activities in the activity list are performed.
This function allows you to prevent a service from being performed before all required preparations are completed.
The file with the service activity list (MMODAL) is updated.
The service to which activities are to be connected must be defined with a service group that requires activity approval and with the service status set to preliminary.

Specify a person responsible for the activity and a planned finish date.
