how to create only ONE Material document when issue multiple items in Syclo IM

A customer has a concern about one standard behavior of SAP Inventory Manager 3.2: 

When doing "Goods Issue" for multiple items in a single GoodsMovementDocument and click "Xmit", separate MaterialDocument will be created for each item. That means each "IssueItem" action will result in a new MaterialDocument, even if they are in the same GoodsMovementDocument. It will cause a lot financial overhead work.

My questions are:

1) Is there way to create only ONE MaterialDocument when issue multiple items for a single GoodsMovementDocument ?  If need enhancement, how?

2) Can we add list screens in "transaction" screen sets? For my current practice, if I define a screen set (e.g. GoodsMovementDocumentEdit) to display transaction, the only screen I can add is detail screen as below. In this case, how can we use screens to edit those Collection TYPE transaction properties (e.g. Items) in GoodsMovementDocumentEdit transaction?

You can see attached picture for more information.

Any advice? Thanks.

    1) In Agentry there is this concept/feature to run your action (Execute) - Execute until rule is true or false (so you may create a rule). So if you have an action that generates that material document to not run the subaction.  I am not sure if that is the best way to handle it but if you are customizing it then that is where you will need to look at it.

    2) For collection type of properties, they are normally shown on the detail screen as a list tile view field (or edit Type) or list screen (it shows a collection) and you may write a subaction to run a loop against it (see picture) as part of your action steps.  Read List Tile View and subaction on the Agentry manual.

    • I checked the bug database. I am sorry now. It is a known issue. It is currently not supported in iPAD. This is because iOS allowed multi-select in iOS 5'ish.

      There has to be some pre-requisite work (Agentry Core coding to support that iOS feature) that needs to happen first before this feature/bug will get fixed (AG-8294 - bug on multi-select does not work with iPAD).  At least you know the bug number now. I guess my suggestion is platform specific.

    • Hi Jian

      In Agentry Editor, do we need to make any changes other than adding a "selected" column.

      Do we need to make any changes in the backend BAPI/Classes for this customization.
