    Please note that we only count one vote per company so no need to vote more than one from the same company

    Hi Rasmus, thank you for the information. OK so.

    What do you think about this feature request? Is the description fOK as generic explanation?

    The explanation is fine and clear but honestly, I'm not that keen on the idea itself It is quite old-fashioned to print anything these days IMHO (we do everything email; no need to get rid of more rain-forest). It is also not the trend to make internal services that people need to struggle opening ports internally causing all kind of support.

    I see a more possible solution (although SAP is not technically ready for it yet) is a cloud service that does something like this (but again mostly used for Email and not printing) is more likely to be made from Boyum.

    But let's see. We are driven by what most people want and if enough vote for this from different companies we might change our opinion.

    Hi Rasmus,
    here you're right. The use case is from the eCommerce area. The best example here is Amazon itself, they send in most packages the delivery note as a printed document in addition. Actually a common process at eCommerce companies.
    Best regards Simon

    Is your feature request referencing this thread?

    Yes, that is related... (the technical part SAP was not yet ready for)... We have some long-term plans at some point to do something with the above and service layer, but still a bit too early to start working on it.

    Sounds good...

    We are on a point where we have to decide to wait for a product feature like that, or implement the full process by our self.

    So your plan is that you go over the Crystal Report B1ServiceLayer API and work on to get B1Print&Delivery Crystal Reports exposed?

    As mentioned it is a long term goal, but honestly not something that I expect we begin in the first half of 2020. After that is unknown, so if you need it here and now it is best to go with your own tailor-made solution
