Request to change Deferment (Batching) process

At the moment on InFlight the deferment process keeps the messages unprocessed until the trigger to create the Envelope it is reached.This causes several issues:
-the alerts will be delayed and we cannot have an proactive recovery for an incorrect IDOC.
-the SAP status messages are sent also delayed and defeats the purpose of the SAP status messages a a real time status
-high processing load at the moment of triggering as you will be processing all messages at once instead of as they arrive(in CTE env this causes long processing times and delays in sending the messages)

    The description contradicts the concept of deferred / batch processing. The solution is not to use deferred processing because you can't mix batch and real time. Please work with your Project Executive / Services Lead to determine the best way to configure your flow.
