SNOTE Note Implementation
SNOTE is used for implementing the SAP notes in the system. SAP notes are small corrections delivered by SAP before releasing the support package. All the SAP notes will be included in the next support package release. The SAP notes which contain the correction instructions can be implemented in the system using the SNOTE and there can FAQ notes also which do not contain the correction instructions but are informative notes. The notes can be edited by SAP after releasing to the customers and when the SAP note is edited by SAP, new version of the SAP note will be released.
Few notes will be released to specific customers and they are called pilot release notes and they will be accessible and can be implemented by only those customers.
