    Summary:
    How to prevent a requisition line from being auto-sourced into a purchase order
    Content:

    There have been a couple of customers in the recent past that have asked for this functionality. Their business use case appeared to be that for certain specific cases, they want the buyer to source the requisition based on additional criteria such as supplier. With the touchless buying setup, the system always attempts to source a requisition into an order through an agreement. 

    We wanted to provide a quick overview of the setup needed to achieve the flip side.

    Take a read and let us know what you think with your ratings and comments.

    Also, I would like to see if I can open this up for inputs from your end to see whether this is something you would see doing in your organization. If yes, what would the business reasons be. A discussion on this topic is welcome

    Happy reading folks

      Thanks. We've been using the same setup for a client of ours.

      For certain incoming Requisitions (inbound interface), the Agreement had to be filled out in the data file. If it wasn't filled out, it shouldn't auto source.
