  7. Click on Add & add a "Note for Provider".

Application Area "Internal IT Support" is purely for the customers for internal purpose where you can use this Application Area within your Organization for Internal Incident Management.


 With the new Enhancements in the SAP Business ByDesign(ByD), In the Incidents Edit screen we have introduced new field called “Application Area”, By selecting the application area your incident is directly sent to the correct SAP expert support team, hence this enhancement will considerably help to reduce the processing time of your incident.

While sending the Incident to SAP Support you must chose the Application Area other than "Internal IT Support".
