Customer Category Standard Stationery Message Update

August 19, 2015 in Accounts Receivable,Order Management,System Manager


This routine is used to set or change standard stationery messages using the customer category. The message entered against a category here will be used by the appropriate document to override the “standard” message the system would normally use (if recorded). Note that the system allows for a standard message to appear on ALL customer documents via the Standard Stationery Messages facility so this customer category based message is only required when you need to vary the message per customer category.

If you want to vary the document messages according to each customers category, then the system allows you to set up an override message against each Customer Category you have setup. Additionally if you want to update several Customer Categories with the same stationery message, you can input the message once here for a given category, and then have them all updated to save changing them individually.
