Get step-by-step instructions to enhance various areas in the standard Mass Change Tool to support mass updates of custom fields and enable search help, drop-downs, and search capabilities for custom and standard fields in license sales contracts at the header and line-item levels.
Key Concept

The SAP CRM Intellectual Property Management Mass Change Tool allows you to mass maintain various components within a license sales contract or across multiple license sales contracts. After making a few enhancements, you can maintain data such as status, dates, parties involved, rights dimensions, custom fields in the contract header, royalties, advances, rights, and holdback scopes.

In a typical television distribution business scenario, a media company sells the license to air a television series to a channel. In many cases, the series has run for many seasons. The series is represented in SAP CRM Intellectual Property Management (CRM-IPM) as intellectual property (IP) with all the seasons represented as sub-IPs under the series IP. When the license sales contract is created, the series IP along with all the season sub-IPs are added to the contract. You can create royalties, advance, rights, and holdback scopes under both the series IP and season sub-IPs to sell different rights in different areas with specific license fees.
