Define Mail to Purchasing When Price Variances Occur

This document consists of configuration steps and an example which is related with  ‘define mail to purchasing when price variances occur’. For me , it is an beneficial implementation to control LIV price differences. The root of reason can be quantity variances and price variances. Also , MM experts have to configure setting of tolerances for incoming invoices. It is a related document in incoming invoices –>

   External mail tips :

   How can i redirect to mail to my e-mail address ?

  ‘Send to Home Addresses of Users’ (transaction SO16, register ‘Mail sy.grp‘). If you use this option SAP Office will redirect the mail to the e-mail address     maintained in the user settings. As a precondition to use this kind of automatic transfer you also have to maintain the standard communication method in the   user settings (INT E-Mail).


   How can i get ‘Confirmation of receipt’ with e-mail ?

   SCOT tcode will be beneficial follow this path –> Settings / Confirmation of Receipt


   Finally , buyer and someonelse can get this e-mail.


   Best regards.
