Overview:


In the below blog, I would be highlighting the steps to make delivery texts mandatory before performing the post goods issue. I came across some threads in the forum which I have pasted below which were incomplete and did not give the complete solution. The aim of this blog is to help all functional consultants to perform this configuration without technical help.

Design Considerations:

The solution can be achieved by making customization changes in text determination procedure and incomplete procedure as explained in the below screen shots.


1) Go to transaction code votxn, click on Delivery Header and Change as shown below

7) The status group controls the system response for incompleteness. (below two screen shots are attached). The status group is defined in the customization node Sales and Distribution-Basic Function-Log of Incomplete Items-Define Status Group
