    The path for making changes to the screens in a notification is

    IMG -> Plant Maintanence and Customer Service -> Maintainence and service Processing -> Maintainence and Service Notifications -> Overview of Notification Type.

    Here select your notification type S1 or any other and specify your requirements.

    • hi subagyo,

      i think its not possible to include price in notification in plant maintenance,but i found the following help in Cross application components -notifications, i have tried but iam not able to get , if you possible to acheive this kindly share with all

      read the following below,

      IMG->cross application components->notifications->notification processing->define costing variant for notifications

      <b>Determine Costing Variant</b>

      In this step, you define a costing variant for notifications.

      You need this costing variant, if you want to plan costs for individual notificatons.

      Thecosting variant is a Customizing object from Controlling. It groups together several control parameters for planning costs. The costing variant is formed from the following parameters:

      <b>Costing type</b>

      Costing type 23 is predefined for notifications.

      <b>Valuation variant</b>

      You use the valuation variant to define which prices are used by the system to evaluate materials, internal activities and external activities.


      <u><b>A screen area for costing purposes must be defined for the notification type. The standard system provides screen area 060 on tab page 10/TAB09 for this purpose.

      A company code must be entered in the notification.</b></u>


      Copy the standard settings.

      Make sure that any modifications you require are performed by a Controlling specialist.


      Check whether the costing variant that has been set in the standard system is available in your client and whether the settings are suitable for your company.

      <b>Further Notes

      The options available for use with notifications that are provided by the parameters costing type and valuation variant are intentionally restricted</b>.
