This application records all incoming receipts for the current shipment. This allows simple and rapid input of individual documents. Incoming documents, which cover multiple shipments should be entered using the accounts payable application in the general accounting module.
As with outgoing invoices, there are 2 possibles states for an incoming voucher:
- New / Open documents
These are new or open documents that have been created (manually or using the voucher system), that have been partially processed and saved, but have not been completed.
- Completed documents
When a document is completed, the status is changed from open to closed. A valid document number is assigned and the data is sent to the accounting department. Completed documents can therefore not be modified, but can only be canceled and re-created.
