External Services Management: New User Parameters

Description

The following new parameters are available as of Release 4.0A:

MSP Model service specifications

TCV Entry variant on service overview screen

LIM Direct call of limits

DOCTYPE Default document type

MSP Model service specifications

User parameter "MSP" allows you to control, on a user-specific basis, which set of model specifications is suggested when the user creates a document (such as a requisition) referencing model specifications.

TCV Entry variant on service overview screen

This parameter allows you to determine the sequence in which the data fields for service lines are to be displayed on the screen.

The parameter can be set as follows:

TCV 1 Time-recording fields first

2 SSC fields first

3 Formula fields

4 No short text field for short description of service

5 User fields

You can also choose the entry variant during document processing via the "Entry variants" menu.

LIM Direct call of limits

You can determine on a user-specific basis that the value limit screen is displayed immediately, i.e. the system offers the value limits first, not the service specifications with individual service lines.

DOCTYPE Default document type

With this parameter, you determine on a user-specific basis which document type is suggested by the system for requisitions and purchase orders (e.g. "FO" for purchase orders with fixed validity periods).
