    How to limit purchase order to only one ship to address
    Content:

    Hi,

    We use self service procurement.

    70% of our purchase orders are no touch purchase orders.

    Is there a way we can enforce only one ship to address on the Purchase orders.

    Please comment.

    Thank you

      In this article, one customer references a configuration option to create Purchase Order by Ship to Location. Have you explored that? I am no purchasing expert but thought this might be helpful to share.

      Hi,
      
      
      
      I'm not clear with your requirement.
      
      But if you are creating the purchase order from one specific location you can attached the inventory Org to that specific location in Manage Locations UI. Then the location will be appear in the 'default ship to location' in the PO.
      
      
      
      Further if you want to get the location by default when creating the PO, you can assign this location in ship-to-location in supplier site. Then, when you select the supplier the location will be automatically populated in the PO creation initial UI.
      
      
      
      Hope this is helpful.

      Please review the feature released in 19C. What's New link and content provided below:

      GENERATE SEPARATE PURCHASE ORDERS BY SHIP-TO LOCATION

      Group requisitions by ship-to location during batch purchase order generation so that separate purchase orders are created for each location. Requester-negotiated requisition lines with no source agreement are grouped by ship-to location into single purchase orders after you run the Generate Orders scheduled process. Requisition lines with the Use ship-to location option enabled on their source agreement are grouped in a similar fashion.

      This feature enriches the requisition to purchase order process, allowing buyers to generate separate purchase orders by ship-to location for described online requisitions. 

      STEPS TO ENABLE
