In this blog, we’d like to introduce you to one of the things that are new or have been changed in the May 2016 version of SAP Business ByDesign.
Of course you can find more information in the What’s New in SAP Business ByDesign documentation, which is available online.
Today, we are going to talk about the late changes in pricing for sales orders.
You can now make changes to Price, Quantity and Ship-to details of project based services or expense items in sales order until the delivery or invoicing is not completed. This would be relevant if you execute long term projects with ongoing price or quantity negotiations during the project phase (ex. if the budget or requirements have changed during project execution). This could also be relevant if there are legal requirements that mandate that a certain fee must be related to creditable costs and can be determined only at the end of delivery.
The following snapshot illustrates that the late changes in Quantity, List Price and Ship-To fields are allowed in a sales order containing item of type Service – fixed price (project) with Invoice Status as In Process.
You can enable this feature from Business Configuration work center and Implementation Projects view. Select your project and click Edit Project Scope.
Note: Configuration settings are usally performed by an adminstrator. If you do not have the required authorization, contact your administrator.
In the Scoping step of the guided activity, in Product and Service Portfolio for Sales under Sales, select Sell Project-Based Products and Services. In the Questions tab, select the statement/question under the business option Late Changes for Project-Based Services.
