Manual Triggering of TEI Transfer per Function

You can print the TEI transfer document manually, if needed, from MWS410, DRS100 and MWS423. To retrieve both the triggering control data to know what document number and variant to use, and the correct output control data to know which TEI partner to be used in each specific case, you need to enter the same settings as for automatic triggering.

Note: This action can be done almost anytime in the delivery / shipments dispatch cycle.

This functionality can primarily be seen as a back up to an automatic trigger. But it can also be used to print, for example, package labels via an external Transportation Execution Systems on demand.
