    • Hi Faisal,

      The path for FM is as follows.

      1. QCC0 > Quality Notifications > Notification Processing > Additional Notification Functions > Define action box > Define Functions for the Action Box > Select Notification type Q2 and double click on Activities at left hand side.

      2. Select send mail and click on details.

      3. In detail view you can observe function module is associated.

      Lets understand what exactly this function module does?

      1. As soon as you click on send mail in QM01 transaction function module gets activated.

      2. When you save notification, the program stored in function module starts executing.

      3. As per the programming in this FM, system captures required details from notification, clubs it and send email to required recipient of email.

      4. You have all the freedom to develop new Z function module by copying existing one and can do required modification in that. Consult with ABAPer for this.

      5. If you want to send mail to vendor I guess you need to use notification type Q2 as it contains the field for vendor code.

      6. Develop the logic in such a way that system will first fetch the vendor code against notification and then fetch email corresponding to that vendor from vendor master. XK03

      7. Most likely you need to have discussion with your basis person in order to enable server configuration for sending emails to outside mail ids.

      8. If you want to send email to many persons it is also possible. You can create new Z table and maintain the email IDs there with respect to plant code.

      9. Accordingly modify the logic in FM.
