Integration of Sales in the Company

You have seen that the user activities in SAP S/4HANA Sales are integrated across the entire order-to-cash process. The documents that are generated during presales, sales, shipping, billing, and accounting link each other. The data is often copied from preceding documents to the next. This is even the case across functional areas and SAP modules, such as sales and accounting or sales and materials management.

As a business user, business process owner, or application consultant, you might need to review the history of one or more documents on demand. You might also want to check the current status of a document at any time. For this use case, SAP S/4HANA offers the function "process flow". It displays the link between all the documents within a sales and distribution process.

Watch the following video to recap how the relevant documents are linked within SAP S/4HANA Sales.
