Does anyone know if it is possible to create multiple PO's for a supplier in a single request? Currently, if we try, we get a single PO with multiple lines, but, would like the system to generate multiple PO's with a single line of costings. IS this possible? Just looking for a way to save the time at the start of a new financial year.
@NOCN I've posted your question internally to see if this is possible or not.
@NOCN are you asking about generating multiple POs for a purchase request or for a payment request?
@NOCN here is the answer I received:
"this is also possible - (again depending on configuration settings) if the user places items belonging to multiple vendors in their cart before requesting the purchase request, then typically upon approval, one purchase request is created, but there could be multiple POs associated to it - one PO for each vendor on the purchase request."
Does this make sense? Sounds like there is some sort of configuration option that needs to be set up to allow this, though.
Maybe not exactly what you asked for, but you can simply copy an existing request under your "Active Items". Select the request you would like copied, click on "Actions" --> "Copy Request". This will copy all the data and give an option to submit, saving you time.
