Completion Confirmations – Define Execution Time for Confirmation Processing

This is another piece of configuration that you normally have to touch, or if you do, you only touch it once.  This defines when the Goods Receipt, Backflush and Actual Cost are calculated.  For our purposes, we only look at type 30, since this is service/maintenance order.


Here it is in SPRO.


Once inside, you see that the defaults for maintenance orders are:

Auto GR:  later in background

Backflush: later in background

Actual cost: immediately online

The other option is to execute any of these immediately in the background.

That’s all there is to it. Set it once, and forget it 🙂
