Default priority type other than "PM"


Greetings Experts,

I have an issue similar to the one described here:

I have set up a priority type "ZM" for Orders with several priorities. I have assigned this priority type to Order Types.

There is a "PM" (SAP standard) priority type in the system, which has another set of priorities.

When a user logs on and creates an Order in IW31, initially the "Priority" dropdown will always display "PM" priorities to choose from, even if there is an Order Type populated on the screen that has "ZM" priority type assigned. When the user presses enter, the selected priority is cleared and priorities from the "ZM" type are made available through the dropdown. A message IW195 "Check the priority" appears.

I would like the priority type "ZM" to be defaulted in IW31.

I understand that the way around this is for the user to press enter, re-select a priority, and then proceed as normal. I also observed that this is only an issue the first time a user calls IW31 after logging on to the system (although it will happen again on the subsequent logon).

However, I would like to know if there is a way (config setting or user parameter) that would cause the other type of priorities to be available from the go?

Is SAP pulling up the "PM" priority type in IW31 initial screen hard-coded?

I have assigned the "ZM" priority type to my Order types and I don't know of any other setting that would circumvent this. Has anyone worked around this issue before?
