Please review the following for setting up or troubleshooting your experience with the Mobile Sales App. Here is a PDF of these instructions: Orchestrated Settings for Mobile Sales App.pdf
Sales Employee Setup
To assign Sales App licenses to employees, first, they must be set up as Sales Employees in your database and linked to Employee Master Data files. The following instructions walk through how to add a new Sales Employee, create a new Employee Master Data file, and link the two - this will enable you to assign licenses in the User Portal.
Add a Sales Employee
- Open the Sales Employees/Buyers table
- MODULES > ADMINISTRATION > SETUP > GENERAL > SALES EMPLOYEES/BUYERS
- Enter the name of the Sales Employee in the SALES EMPLOYEE NAME column
- Enter any remarks, if applicable, in the REMARKS column
- Click OK to add
Link a Sales Employee to Employee Master Data
- Open the Employee Master Data window
- MODULES > HUMAN RESOURCES > EMPLOYEE MASTER DATA
- Create a new Employee Master Data File
- Type CTRL+A to switch to ADD MODE
- Enter the following for each employee:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Job Title
- In the Sales Employee field, select the corresponding Sales Employee from the drop-down menu
- Click ADD to add
- You will be given the option to add a New User tied to this Employee file – Sales App users do NOT need to be set up as Users in your database
- Click NO to skip, click YES to add a New User
To assign a Sales Employee to an existing Employee Master Data file: use FIND MODE to pull up the file, select the corresponding Sales Employee from the drop-down menu, and click ADD.
In order to create a Sales Order in the Mobile Sales App, the Business Partner associated with that Sales Order must have Shipping Types setup.
