Process Free Form Payments (Fiori APP F2564)
New ‘Process Free Form Payment’ Fiori app (APP F2564 ) addresses TWO major concerns : –
1.Once Payee Bank details information is retrieved from the Master data, user has only options to select to the ‘Parner Bank ID’ (Supplier Bank details ID) , all other fields like ‘payee Bank No. , Payee Account Number and Payee Bank Country are no editable. This ensures information retrieved from Master data will not amended.
2. Incase of Payment currency is ‘ Foriegn currency’ , local currency amount conversion will handled by the ‘Currency coversion’ set in SAP . User dont have to explicitly enter the ‘Local currency Amount’.
The new Process free form Payments’ app is really easy to navigate and quite user friendly. By the ability to segregate the roles, the same Fiori app can be used both for creation and post & Release . Depending on your role, you can create, check, edit, post, reverse, and release payment requests.
It is really fun to work with a tool that can centrally support Consultant and end user needs.
