Send email to buyer when bidder submits a bid

Hi All,

We are on SRM 5.0. The customer wants that an email should be sent to the Buyer/ Purch Group when a bidder submits a Bid on the Bid Invitation.

I have done following settings in customizing:

1) Assigned event schema QUOT to Transaction type - QUOT

2) Assigned Event SUBMITTED (with an Alert) to Event Schema - QUOT (This is standard SAP setting).

Now, with this setting, an email triggers when a Bid is submitted by the bidder. However, it is being sent to the 'Goods Recipient' on the Bid Invitation/ Bid.

This looks like very standard behaviour of SAP.

I need to know how & where can I tweak the logic in order to send email to the Buyer instead of the Goods Recipient?

Has anybody implemented such functionality before? If so, please share your valuable inputs.

Thanks in advance,

    Even if you are going to change the GR to Buyer then it ight be kind of object change.. if you want to send the just email notification.. then you can simply implement the Badi 'BBP_DOC_SAVE_BADI' which will have Bid response document guid id as importment.. then call the FM 'BBP_PD_QUOT_GETDETAIL' get the Bid invitiation details and find the buyer email id then use the FM 'SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1' and email...
