    Title:
    PO : Confirming order checkbox
    Content:

    Hi,

    What is the significance of the Confirming order checkbox in PO.

    Does it have any impact of the PO communication to Supplier? ( apart from the ...don not duplicate message)

    I noticed that in one case, the PO is in 'Pending Supplier acknowledgment' status and has Confirming order checkbox selected. However, 2 notifications have gone to supplier.

    • Email notification requesting supplier acknowledgment 
    • Email informing supplier of the PO. One which is sent when PO moves to open status. Ideally this should not have been sent. Just wondering if the Confirming order checkbox in PO is causing this communication to be sent.

    Any thoughts?

    Regards,

    Niamath

      Hi Niamath,

      Doubt  the two notifications that you are seeing have anything to do with the Confirming Order checkbox.

      My understanding is the same as yours that it helps in communicating to the supplier that they already should be aware of and in the process of fulfilling the order.

      Have you tried the same scenario without the Confirming order checkbox checked? Are you getting different results?

      Regards,
      Suman.

      Suman,

      Thanks for responding. The issue is due to a different reason. I was able to analyse and replicate it. Have raised an SR for the same.

      It wasn't due to 'Confirm Order' check box.

      Regards,
