The purpose of this page is to clarify the understanding of the system logic and behavior in relation to the creation of draft Advanced Shipping Notifications (ASN).
How to create a draft ASN and how the system considers them.
How the system considers a draft ASN
Draft ASNs are not considered anywhere. They don't consume the due quantity, nor do they show up as ASN confirmed schedule lines. Only published ASNs do that. The user can see draft ASNs by navigating from PO Details screen via the Show ASNs button or by searching for draft ASNs in the ASN Overview.
Creation of draft ASNs
If an ASN is saved as a draft, then you will be able to create as many as you wish. This also means that you will be able to create duplicate ASNs.
Only when they are published they will impact on due quantity, and once all quantity is consumed, than you will not be able to publish more ASNs (except in case you have configured an over delivery scenario).
