Thanks for your efforts in writing this blog. I would also like to see if there is any email notification gets triggered to carrier vice versa if the Shipper rejects the carrier Invoice. As of now there is no intimation to carrier whenever planner rejects the carrier Invoice from TM FO. Carriers are clueless when the shipper rejects the carrier Invoices for some reason due to currency mismatch or attachment missing. SAP also didn't come up with any solution so far. May be i was thinking it can be achieved through Custom PPF actions. Did you come across this requirement?
This is a know gap and I guess this issue is being discussed. Based on invoice status you can always have a custom output mgmt implementation to trigger email .
Yes exactly, this is what we are planning too to build custom PPF based on status. But checking with SAP too if this requirement can be released in further stages. If not then we need to go for this.
Thanks once again for writing the blog!
