Simultaneous Archiving (SD)

The following steps describe a typical scenario in which incoming documents are archived at the same time that a Sales and Distribution document is created:

  1. Mr. Stevens has a small stack of incoming documents which require processing. He sorts them, scans them into the system with equipment at his desk, and checks the scanned documents for quality and completeness from the dialog window.
  2. He then selects the predefined setting for Sales and Distribution in the "Simultaneous archiving" window.
  3. A variety of incoming document types are defined for Sales and Distribution, allowing Mr. Stevens to freely assign types to the documents he has archived. He assigns the incoming document type for "Contract", SDICONTRAC, to one of the displayed originals.
  4. Mr. Stevens confirms the assignment and automatically branches to the business transaction specified for the incoming document type, in this case, "Create contract".
  5. He creates the contract, and after successfully processing it, assigns the original document to it.
