    A sales activity(Sales Support) reproduces the contact between a publishing employee (sales area) and a business partner according to a sales source and a sales activity type.


    You record the date and time (required entries) of each sales activity you record in the system. You can also classify the sales activity using keys defined in Customizing (e.g. outcome, status) and use this information to monitor its progress.

    You can specify the sales activity that led to an order item in the promotion data on that order item. The link between the sales activity and the order enables you to evaluate the success of sales activities.

    Sales activities can either be created manually or generated automatically using the standard letter function.

    You can maintain a comment of any length for each sales activity; the first three lines of this comment are then displayed on the maintenance screen.


    A sales activity includes the following data:

    • Header data

    Business partner, business partner role, sales activity date, sales activity time, user name

    • Reference to sales promotion

    Sales source, sales promotion

    • Classification (keys are defined in Customizing)

    Sales activity type, reason, outcome, outcome analysis, status

    • Reference to organization

    Sales organization, distribution channel, division, sales office, sales group
