Need for TECO before settlement
I've noticed a lot of replies from people indicating that the PM/CS order should be technically completed before settlement.
I have so far managed to avoid MM/SRV External Services, but I know for regular time confirmations, goods issues, receipt of purchase orders, you do not have to TECO the order before settlement.
You can also settle the order as many times as you like if further actual costs are accrued.
Is this the same for External Services MM/SRV?
I understood, from what I've read, that you can accept services in MM/SRV in steps (like a project) so it doesn't seem logical to have to wait for TECO before settlement.
With refurbishment orders, it would almost certainly make sense.
I'm wondering if that is where the perception that you have to technically complete an order before settlement is coming from?
