How do we generate a notification e-mail for the buyer for approval of conf

We have configured tolerance check for delivery date in PO confirmation. If the delivery date is outside the tolerance, the confirmation is subject to manual approval by the buyer.

How do we setup an e-mail notification and send it to the buyer (purchasing group)?

Also is there a standard query for the buyer to see all the POs waiting for his/her approval in the PO worklist area?

Thanks for your help.

    Hi Soumen

    Alert 7055 caters to your need

    Activate the alert type in SPRO-SNC-Exception mgmt-activate alert types

    Then log in with your customer user (customer webui)

    Go to Alert Monitor, Save selection for Alert Type-7055 and set notification(button) for it

    Recipient Type: USER

    Recipient User: Buyer

    Email: XXx at the rateXYZdot com

    Message Channel: Email

    Also maintain the user email address in su02 transaction

    Maintain SCOT setting as well

    Now regarding

    Also is there a standard query for the buyer to see all the POs waiting for his/her approval in the PO worklist area?

    For customer user----PO worklist

    Activate the query 'PO Items (Navigation from Quick View)

    and change query, in selection go to "others" section

    Filter "Approval Status" to "MAN"

    Manual Approval required

    This will give the list of PO that require manual approval

    Best Regards

    Hi Soumen,

    Check out below link

    You need to change alert type from 7051 to 7055 and check whether you are getting email alerts or not.

      Hi Nikhil

      Thanks. I set up the alert notification and ran /SCMB/ANOTPULL - Start Alert Notification. I do not see any output in SOST. Do you know what setting I need to do in SCOT in order to send the e-mail out?
