2965162 - New enhancements about configuration step: Assign Sales Document Types Permitted for Sales Areas - SAP S/4HANA Cloud


There are 2 types of usage for configuration step: Assign Sales Document Types Permitted for Sales Areas - either to leave it blank, or to maintain sales areas for every sales document type. Now new configuration steps 'Combine Sales Organizations', 'Combine Distribution Channels' and 'Combine Divisions' are provided where customer can use it to maintain common reference sales organization, distribution channel and division.




Configuration step 'Combine Distribustion Channels' is being taken as an example.

01 01
02 01
03 01


In this example, only distribution channels 01 and 04 have sales document types defined. Distribution channels 01, 02, and 03 share the sales document types defined for distribution channel 01. Distribution channel 04 has its own sales document types. When you create a sales order in distribution channel 03, the system checks the sales document type against the types defined for distribution channel 01. You do not maintain sales document types in distribution channels 02 and 03, since they are never used.
