Enhancements in Overdue Purchase Order Items

With this feature, you can now monitor if a supplier confirmation exists for a given purchase order item, by clicking the Adapt Filters button and selecting the Supplier Confirmation Status filter. From the value help of the Supplier Confirmation Status filter, you can choose either of the following values: Supplier Confirmation not expectedSupplier Confirmation expected but not received, or Supplier Confirmation received. You can also navigate to the Monitor Supplier Confirmations app for more details.

Enhancements in Product Carbon Footprint

With this app, you can now track the carbon footprint using the following new views:

  • Trend: Track carbon footprint along calendar month and year.

  • Trend by Product Group: Track carbon footprint along calendar month, calendar year, and product group.

SAP S/4HANA Cloud supports integration with a footprint assessment solution (currently SAP Product Footprint Management), that displays the product footprint information available in this app.

For more information, please see Product Carbon Footprint | SAP Help Portal.

Enhancements in Schedule Persistency of Parts Per Million Data

With this app, you can now do the following:

  • Select a relative date function as one of the parameters, from the Relative Date Function field value help.

  • Execute the scheduled job as a simulation by selecting the Simulation Mode checkbox. As a result, no changes will be made in the database. This is useful, mainly to check for possibility of errors before the job is executed.

For more information, please see Schedule Persistency of Parts Per Million Data | SAP Help Portal.

Enhancements in Schedule Persistency of Supplier Evaluation Scores

With this app, for scheduling a job to persist the supplier evaluation score history, you can choose either a relative date function or the start and end date, as a parameter for persisting supplier evaluation scores.
