Controlling sequencing of outputs through Activity Profile in Shipments
The activity profile outlines possible activities to be executed in the
Shipment document when the shipment has reached a certain status.
Separate activity profile can be defined for each status, like currently in the clients system it is printing certain delivery/shipment outputs at time when shipment status is planning, check in, Loading start and so on. This activity profile can be accessed through IMG > LE > Transportation > Shipments > Define and Assign Activity Profiles.
A selection variant can be defined, which may in turn be assigned to a
Shipment type. In this way, the shipment activities that are to be
carried out are defined for the shipment type as soon as the
Corresponding status is set.
The pre-requisite for output processing that the output will be executed, if and only if they have been already determined in the respective applications. If an output has been determined in a particular application, then by setting the corresponding status in the shipment, the determined output will be executed. So in this case the send time of all outputs printed is "3"(Send by application's own transaction).
In current process in the clients system assuming that shipment has many delivers having dangerous goods, when the shipment has planning status checked in and saved, A dangerous goods output is triggered in the shipment document but not printed, subsequently picking is done and confirmed, After pick confirmation a consignment note output is triggered in the delivery document but not printed, subsequently checking status is checked and saved and subsequent loading start is checked and saved. At this stage both dangerous goods output and consignment note output are printed. Currently if shipment has 10 deliveries having dangerous goods, after loading start button is checked and saved, First 10 dangerous goods output for 10 deliveries are printed and then consignment note output for these deliveries are printed.
The client requirement is for first delivery consignment note output should be printed first after which the dangerous goods output should be printed related to this first delivery and for the second delivery consignment note output should be printed first after which the dangerous goods output should be printed related to this second delivery and so on.Is it possible to change the sequencing of these outputs and how?
I would appreciate your inputs in this regard.
