Mandatory fields - Customer Master Data

0 Kudos

Hello Experts,

We would like some of the fields in the Customer Master Data as mandatory fields, but I would like to make sure it doesn't affect any other process as for example purchasing if the Business partner also is a supplier.

The fields on the general view are
- Industry system
- Industry
- Default mail setting

The fields on the Sales area are:
- Customer group 1
- Sales office
- Sales group
- Delivery plant
- Shipping Conditions
- ABC Class
- Account assignment group

Could you please advise if you see that this would cause any issues for other processes both inside and outside sales?

Thnaks & Regards,
Vignesh SR

Hi Vignesh,

The mandatory field settings on the Customer Master specific data (for example Sales view) would not have any effect on the Purchasing view of the Supplier Master data.

For General Data, you might want to adjust the field settings at the Customer Master data account group level.

Transaction SPRO then, follow the below path:

Financial Accounting (New) > Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable > Customer Accounts > Master Data > Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data > Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers)

Best Regards,
