Prerequisite to do Project Based Service/Product:
Edit Project Scope>Questions> Sales>Sell Project-Based Products and Services>Check question “You can sell project-based services.” And “You use sales orders to sell projects.”
1. Release the Sales Order
If you’ve input the Project based service in the Sales Order and you want to release the Sales Order directly, error message “Order not released; No project task is assigned to item 10” will be displayed.
This is because a project based item has to have a project assigned to it.
2. Create Project.
Input the necessary information to create the project.
You will get the information message as “Project CPSO179 (3714) has been created. You can edit it as soon as you have saved the sales order.”
3. Save and Release the Sales Order.
The Order Status changed to Open but in the drop down list, you find there is no option for you to release the Service item.
A project has been attached to the respective Sales Order with the Status In Planning.
Since this item type is Project Based, you need to accomplish the Service through the Project.
4. Release the related project.
Back to the respective Sales Order’s Document Flow.
The Status of Project has been changed to Released while the status of Sales Order remains Open.
The Delivery Status on item level remains Not Started. For Fixed Prices (Project) type, the delivery status is updated once the project task is started.
5. Start the process for the project task. Once it is done, you will see the green symbol besides the project task status. It means 'Fulfillment In Process'.
Back to the respective Sales Order. The Delivery Status changed to In Process.
6. Record time for the projec task, then generate Project invoice Request via Customer Invoicing WoC> Project Invoicing> Projects.
Release the Project Invoice Request.
The Invoice Status in the Sales Order changed to In Process.
