Prior to Release 4.0, you could optically archive original documents for all receipts. There was no facility for choosing which documents you wanted to optically archive.
As of Release 4.0A, you can activate optical archiving for each movement type and transaction.
In Customizing for goods receipt, you can configure archiving for each transaction and movement type in the step Activate optical archiving. In the Standard configuration, optical archiving is deactivated.
Customers already using the System prior to Release 4.0 must specify which original documents they want to continue to optically archive. In the Standard configuration, the System no longer prompts you to archive.
