Contractual Performance Withholding and Warranty Retention
We have agreements with some of the customers and sub contractors we are working with for some of the services we deliver with regards to the payments they owe us [We don’t use Customer Agreement functionality in IFS yet and in App9] Invoce 1: There’s a down payment for € 1,000 + 19% VAT - When the CO is released, this has to be settled by the Custmer Invoice 2: At an agreed milestone with the cutomer [Note that the customer retains 10% contractual withholding cost of € 2,200] Invoice 3: At another milestone of delivering more quantities of the 2 services [Note that the quantities here are cumulative, so is the 10% Contractual Performance Withholding retention by the customer which makes the total retention is € 6,750 only at this point by the customer Invoice 4 [Final Invoice] - The services are fully delivered now and the rention goes down to 5% only via a new item called Warrenty Retention, meaning that the balance between € 6,750 and € 5,400 is returned by the customer now T
Currency Rates on Price Lists
Hello, We would like to create a price list for a US customer (in USD) We would like this price list to update automatically with the latest currency rate each month. Ideally this would be based on the GBP value at sales part level. Therefore, the sales order would pull through the latest price based on the GBP/USD rate for that month. Does IFS have a functionality to help me with this? (Can the price list reflect a change in GBP/USD rate) Thank youMike
Customer Agreement - Is it possible to default to "View with Valid Date"?
Hi Forum,We make use of Customer Agreements, and each agreement can have a lot of part lines, with many different valid dates.Is anyone aware of a way we can configure a base profile or user profile to have the radio button set to “View with Valid Date” (which defaults to today’s date) set as the default when a user opens the Customer Agreement screen and searches: rather than the radio button defaulting to View All? The reason for wanting this is that it’s most common for our users to want to see todays agreements, not the full history per part / date.We are on IFS10 UPD18, and currently using EE.I’ve tried everything I can think so not sure if it’s a bit of knowledge I don't’ know, or just not possible?Thanks in advance!
Perform RMA for the serialized part
Dear Community,We are currently facing challenges in handling the RMA for the serialized part.Let me provide you with a detailed overview of the situation.For quite some time, we have been using a particular inventory part. However, due to a requirement, we needed to transition this part to a serial tracking. Since there were no available stocks of the part, we managed to successfully convert it into a serial-tracked item. Recently, a part was returned by a customer, but it was initially delivered when the part did not have serial tracking enabled. Consequently, we are now encountering an error when attempting to receive the part with a serial number. We would greatly appreciate any assistance provided for this issue. when I try to receive with Serial no, getting following error.Part Master
Order of printing pick notes
Hi, we have a CRIM that specifies the printer and the order in which the pick sheets need to come off the printer, but it still prints out randomly. The print outs need to be in the order the user specifies within the shipment lines screen and according to our developers, this is all working as expected until it reaches the print queue, where its random. Any assistance on this would be appreciated. thanks

Where is the salesrep region information located in IFS Cloud?
Hello, I am currently looking for the sales representative information in IFS Cloud, more specifically, the region information. If a sales rep has ownership of specific regions, I’d like to see if I can use that to filter out the list of sales reps that you can select from when creating a new sales quotation for a specific region. Thanks,Bryan
Expiration Date of Tax Exemption Certification No in the customer (tab "Tax Exempt Information")
Hi,if the Tax Exemption Certificate has been expired then the Tax Liability “EXEMPT” usually should not be applied anymore. If customer order or invoices will be created after the expiration of the tax exempt certificate, the the applied tax / tax codes are not correct and an invoice should not be created with liability EXEMPT. Is there any check of the Expiration Date of a Tax Exemption Certification No within the customer order and or invoice in IFS Standard (App10, Cloud)? Thank you for your support.BR,Martin

What is the purpose of the expiration date for Business Opportunities?
Hello,What is the purpose of the expiration date for Business Opportunities? Do they auto close once they go past the expiration date? if not, how do I get them to automatically do this? I have a scheduled database task that uses the “Set_Closed” method of the Business Opportunity API but I cannot set this to only occur when the Expiration date = SYSDATE. This results in an error that makes IFS think the opportunity is already deleted, because its not coming up with a result. Any and all advise would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,Bryan
How to email customer that their Business Opportunity is going to/has expired?
Hello,I would like to set up a process that notifies the customer that their Business Opportunity is going to expire in a week, 5 days, 3 days, and when the BO has actually expired. I can set up an event action to handle when a field has changed… so I’m thinking about having a daily database task that updates a custom field that represents how many days until this BO expires, and basing the event off of that.My only issue is the email portion, for the Business Opportunity, the contact email is not available for the entity. How can I set this up so that field appears on the BO? Obviously IFS has the entity connection set up since the Contacts appear on the BO page, but I cannot access that BusinessObjectContact entity from the BO entity, to add in a custom field that references the email.How should I approach this? Any and all advise would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,Bryan

Business Opportunity Lines History
Hello my friendsHow can we record our Business Opportunity Lines (make a history) when they (Business Opportunity Lines) connect to Sales Quotation, As you know when we create Sales Quotation from Business Opportunity the Business Opportunity Lines automatically set in Sales Quotation lines and when we change the Sales Quotation lines, again automatically the Business Opportunity Lines has changed, Here how can we make a history from our pre-Business Opportunity Lines? (before make some changes in Sales Quotation lines ), Actually we need our Business Opportunity Lines in every step separately.Wish the best for you guysGood Luck
Scheduled Database Task to close Business Opportunity
Hello, I would like to automatically close a Business Opportunity when it expires (expiration date = today’s date). I wanted to do this via a Workflow, but sadly, you can’t schedule workflows to run daily, they have to be based off of a projection action or event action. I looked at scheduled database tasks, and I found the method Set_Closed for Business Opportunities, but sadly, the scheduled database task I set is not working. I have this set up so far:I added the “Expiration_date” parameter. Whenever this is run, I get this error: “ORA-20115: BusinessOpportunity.The "Business Opportunity" has already been removed by another user.”and no Business Opportunities close. Am I missing something? I’ve worked with some scheduled database tasks before that automatically create pick lists and reserve customer order items, but this is the first time I’ve seen parameters that (I’m assuming) are passed into the API to set the BO as either Won or Lost. The API Explorer documentation for this meth
Impact of Pre-posting on PO header and the account line
Hi Team,In the purchase order window, what is the functional impact of entering the ‘account’ value on the Pre-posting header or line? It seems that ‘account’ for the double entry created under inventory transaction history is always fetched from posting control.Further, it was observed that pre-posting values entered other than the ‘account’ field are fetched for posting against IP1 transaction at invoicing stage.Thanks
