In Application and User Management, Output Channel Selection, you have maintained the output channel for Created Purchase Order as printer (fax/email/etc).

Meanwhile, in supplier ABC's master data, you haven't maintained any particular output channel for purchase order , hence system use the default output channel defined in Output Channel Selection when you create new purchase order for supplier ABC.


  1. Open the master data of supplier ABC.
  2. Go to Communication: Collaboration tab.
  3. Miantain an output channel for purchase order.

After you save it, when you create new purchase orders for supplier ABC, the default output channel will change to the one you maintained in supplier master data.
