The Next Order Status preference is used to skip or insert processing steps after Sales, by overriding the next step in the Order Activity Rules. Certain customer/item combinations may require that steps in the sales order process be skipped.

Programs Affected:

This preference, whether basic or advanced, is applied at Sales Order Entry (P4210/P42101), Batch Order Edit/Create (R40211Z) and Batch Preference Update (R40840).

The preference can be activated at Sales Order Entry, Ship Confirmation (P4205), or Invoice Print (R42565).

Additional Information: The system will search through the preference hierarchy until it finds a match. The Next Order Status is applied at Sales Order Entry. The Order Activity Rules must be set up to accommodate the next status value that is brought in via the preference, and the system will not check for or prohibit invalid next status values when creating the preference. Hence it is possible to receive an error in Sales Order Entry that the status is invalid.


Documents setup specific to the Next Order Status Preference profile. Depending on requirements, this can be implemented as a basic or advanced preference.
