However, if payments are not received using electronic bank statements, you need to enter the payment data manually and trigger a search for the matching open items. Ideally, the system proposes a list of matching items for which you can post and clear the payment in one step. If it is not possible to clear the payment, you can post it on account or to a G/L account.

Monitor Material Coverage - Net / Individual Segments (F2101) SAP Fiori App

Description

With this app, you can monitor all the materials in a selected area of responsibility. This includes collective requirements materials, make-to-stock and make-to-order materials, and materials for direct procurement. You are provided with a list of all materials with a net requirement segment or individual planning segments, which considers the following planning segments:

  • Net segment - planning for the whole MRP area
  • Individual customer segment - using sales order stock
  • Individual project segment - using project stock
  • Segment for direct production planning - with direct creation of planned orders
  • Segment for direct procurement planning - with direct creation of purchase requisitions

The system calculates the requirements for each segment separately. The materials of these planning segments might have coverage issues according to a specified shortage definition. The shortage definition you choose contains a set of rules that the system uses for calculating the material shortages. These rules define the scope of the shortage calculation, meaning the supply and demand elements to be considered and the conditions that have to be met to be a relevant shortage. You can use the default filters Time till Shortage, Material, and Individual Segment to narrow down the scope of your list.

This app provides you with the information that you need to be able to react to the shortage situation on time, meaning that you can avoid disruptions to production or to the fulfillment of customer demands. From this app, you can directly navigate to the Manage Material Coverage app to view details of the selected materials and check different solutions.

Key Features

Manage Outbound Deliveries (VL060_CLOUD) SAP GUI App

Description

With this app, you can display and process completed and open outbound deliveries at various stages of delivery processing. You can get tailor-made worklists based on your area of responsibility and on the way your shipping department is organized. This app allows you to perform specific steps as standalone activities, for example, picking, verifying and confirming picking data, and posting goods issue. It also enables you to perform various steps in a certain sequence over the duration of your workday.

Create Billing Documents (F0798) SAP Fiori App

Description

With this app, you can create billing documents (for example, invoices and credit memos) from items in the billing due list. This includes debit memo requests, sales orders, deliveries, and other sales and distribution (SD) documents. You can also generate temporary billing documents that you can review before converting them to final billing documents.

Key Features

  • Searching for items in the Billing Due List
    • Search using basic filters: document number, document category, sold-to party, and dates
    • Search using additional filters: add filters manually to filter by sales organization and billing type (for example, invoice), customer project or issue (for example, when the system indicates there is a problem with a billing document), or many other filters.
  • Adapt your view by choosing columns to display, sorting data by one or more data types (for example, customer number), grouping data (for example, by customer project), and using page variants to save and load custom filter and column layouts you have previously created.
  • Make billing settings so the system does the following automatically when you create billing documents:
    • Enter billing date and type before billing

      If you enable this setting and choose to create billing documents, the system requests a billing date and the required billing type before creating billing documents.

    • Create separate billing document for each item of billing due list

      If you enable this setting and choose to create billing documents, the system creates separate billing documents for each item of the billing due list that you have selected.

    • Automatically post billing documents

      The system automatically posts all billing documents that you create to accounting and triggers output (for example, an invoice by e-mail). Note that if you do not choose to automatically post billing documents, you must manually post your billing documents using the Manage Billing Documents app.

    • Display billing documents after creation

      The system generates and displays temporary billing documents for the SD documents that you have selected for billing. You then have the option to save or discard them. Saving converts them to persistent billing documents, while discarding them returns you to the billing due list.

      Note

      You cannot edit a newly created temporary billing document until you have saved it, which converts it to a persistent billing document. Once saved, you can edit the billing document. Because posting the billing document to financial accounting also triggers output, before posting, you must ensure that you have finalized not only all changes that are relevant for financial accounting (for example, the billing date), but also changes that are relevant for output (for example, texts that you want to appear on the invoice form). You can prevent the automatic posting of newly created billing documents with the setting described in the section directly above.

  • Create billing documents

    You can select one or more items in the billing due list to create billing documents for them. The system uses your billing settings during billing document creation. After you have created billing documents, you can manage your billing documents using the Manage Billing Documents app.

App Extensibility

Key users can use the Custom Fields and Logic app to create UI elements (custom fields) for the following business context:

UI ElementBusiness Context
Billing due listSales: Billing Due List

Note
These custom fields are read-only and can only be filled with data by enabling one or more of the following process extensibility business scenarios:
  • Sales Document Header Level to Billing Due List in business context Sales: Sales Document or Sales: Billing Due List
  • Billing Document Request Header Level to Billing Due List in business context Sales: Billing Document or Sales: Billing Due List
  • Delivery Header Level to Billing Due List in business context Shipping: Delivery or Sales: Billing Due List
