Compensation groups consist of multiple order lines that have been combined into groups to enable joint discounting or surcharging (order line group discounts). They are also useful for creating bills of materials from a quotation where they help to join manufacturing parts into quotation groups that then serve as the basis for the creation of the bill of materials and the sales product.
Compensation groups can be created both manually and automatically as well, if preconfigured accordingly.
In order to set up automatic compensation grouping, please proceed as follows:
Note: The grouping product must not be stocked and it must be linked to the very same price list as in the sales order where it shall be used.
Note: Products from the same product category are combined into a compensation group with the same schema during automatic compensation grouping.
