Configurations for Attachments and Comments

As part of SAP Business Network Supply Chain Collaboration, buyers can add attachments (such as PDFs) and comments to documents originating on their side (such as Purchase Orders). Likewise, the supplier can add attachments and comments to documents that originate from their side (such as Advance Ship Notices). For the attachments and comments added to be visible to the correspondent, the document type must support this integration.

The transactions that support attachments and comments are listed in the SAP Help Portal.
