Define and assign activity status and
In this menu option you define the possible sales activity
statuses and status groups:
Sales activity status
The sales activity status indicates
the current stage of processing of the sales activity.
Using the status group, you define
the statuses a sales activity can have and the sequence in which
these sales activity statuses can occur. The SAP System recognizes
the permitted sales activity statuses by the status group allocated
to a sales activity type.
With the status group you also
determine the default values for the sales activity reason, the
sales activity outcome and the outcome analysis that should be made
by the SAP System when you process a sales activity.
Sales activity reasons, sales activity outcome and the outcome
analyses must already be defined.
1. Check, depending on sales activity
type, which statuses for the sales activities are relevant for
sales and distribution in your company.
Determine the possible sequence of
the statuses and the default values for a sales activity status
(such as the first sales activity status).
2. Define the possible sales activity
Specify a single-digit, alphanumeric
key and a description for each sales activity status.
3. Define the status groups.
Specify an alphanumeric key with up
to 3 characters and a description for each status group.
In addition, specify a sales activity
reason and the corresponding default values for the sales activity
reason, the sales activity outcome and the outcome analysis.
4. Specify the sales activity
statuses allowed for the status groups in the sequence you require.
In addition, define the overall status of the each sales activity.
The overall status shows, for example, whether a sales activity has
been edited partially or fully.
5. Finally, allocate the appropriate
status group to each sales activity type.
