Setting up Service Order Types

On the Service Order Type page you can set up various functions. For example, you can select whether certain service order types should only be available for certain areas or whether some booking groups should be assigned to certain service order types by default. The booking groups will then be added automatically when you open a posted document and don’t have to be added manually each time you create a new document. In addition, you can also set up internal invoicing or determine whether another cost center should be debited in documents.

Note

Service order types can only be modified when no document is being processed. For example, if you have assigned a certain service order type to a sales invoice you have to post the document before you can modify the service order type.
