Notification in Process - Once you have created a quality notification and entered all of the facts of the problem, you can put the notification in process. When you put a notification in process, you are releasing the notification for processing

Notification Potponemnet - In some cases, it may be necessary to delay the processing of a quality notification (for example, because the assigned tasks cannot be performed yet or because the defects analysis has not been completed).

Notf complete - You complete a quality notification when the notification problem has been solved and no further processing is required. After you complete a notification, the data in the notification can no longer be changed. You can then only display the notification.

When a notification is completed, it receives the status NOCO (notification completed).

Detailed level info:

Basicaly Header level tasks are referred as "Immediate Tasks", These tasks provide a quick fix for a problem requiring immediate attentione and header level activities are referred as activities done immediately attend the same.

Item level tasks are " Corrective Tasks". These tasks usually provide final solutions that wil prevent the problem for reccuring.

For eg if you get a vendor rejection in your shop the immediate action will to intimate to the concerned person quickly and remove it to block location. So your immedite task can be of like 1) Communicate the production personnel 2) block the material 3) block the vendor 4) inform vendor and activities can be of like 1) email send to vendor 2) material moved to block 3)deliveries return back to vendor etc

But as you know notification refers to a particular defect. So we need to take necessary corrective and preventive actions. SAP notification helps in doing this also. The item level entries are basicaly meant for this. In Item overview we can enter the defects that was noted on the material, you can maintain relevant causes for the same. Corrective tasks can be of like 1) Audit at vendors place 2) activation of source inspection 3) tighten the inspection standards and relevant activities done to achieve the tasks can also be maintained. This also helps in creating the 8D reports

So a detailed analysis of the problem is dealt in the item level Cause, tasks & activities while immediate action get covered in the header datas.
