From the A-NZ Peppol All Stakeholders Working Group, it was agreed that creating smaller focus groups to deal with identified topics would be the best way to work through issues before presenting findings or recommendations back to the main working group.
The Attachments Focus Group was created out of the Consistent Data Mapping Focus Group as there was a need to deal with attachments separately. The purpose of this focus group is to promote consistent support and management of attachments via the Peppol network to ensure / maximise positive client experience.
This Focus Group is currently running a survey to explore the current handling of attachments with the intent to establish a baseline of expected behaviour for handling attachments and a set of recommendations for both Digital Service Providers (DSPs) and enterprise users. If you are interested in providing your feedback and experience, you are welcome to complete the survey here. Please note the survey will close at 5pm AEST on Friday 30 September.
There are varied levels of support of attachments for Peppol Invoice and Credit Note transactions. As such, there are circumstances where end-users will require a better understanding of the use of attachments within the Peppol network.
Guidance is required to promote consistent support for sending, receiving and managing attachments (e.g., accessibility, storage etc.), which will strengthen data quality and richness, and maximise positive client experience. Access the full problem statement below.
