Define How Season and Delivery Windows Are Defaulted During Customer Order Entry

This document explains which settings have an impact on how the season and the delivery windows are defaulted during customer order entry.

Outcome

You know how to default the season and the delivery window into the customer order header and order line.

The process of entering a customer order becomes much faster by using default values. The user is supported by the system and minimizes the risk of making mistakes.

Note: 'Season' and 'Delivery window' fields are using the same fields in M3 as the 'Project number' and 'Project element' fields. Depending on the settings, the same fields may have different meanings. The field headings though, will always be project oriented.

Before you start

Program ID/Panel Field The field indicates…

Basic Settings

(MNS100/J) Project management

…whether the fields 'Project number' (PROJ) and 'Project element number' (ELNO) are validated in different functions outside project management. If the 'Project management' field is used, the validations and browsing are done according to projects entered in project management.

The field also indicates whether it is possible to use season management in Customer Order Management. If the field is activated, the season management cannot be used.

If the field is not activated, the 'Project number' and 'Project element number' fields can be used as the 'Season' and 'Delivery windows' fields in a customer order.
