    Title:
    Attachments to PO
    Summary:
    Attachments to PO document in open status
    Content:

    Hi,

    In EBS, documents can be attached to a PO which is approved and in open status. Whereas, in Fusion/Cloud, documents cannot be attached to PO which is in open status and it can be done only when a PO is edited which creates a change order to a PO.

    Is there anything similar to EBS feature.

    Best regards,

    Saravanan R

    There is the ability to upload attachments to purchasing documents using the ERP Object Attachment Service, but there are some limitations. You can find the whitepaper here: 2444554.1

     

    Can you provide some more details about what business process you are following, and why you need to create these attachments?

      In Oracle Fusion Purchasing, attachments needed to be added or updated via CO when a PO is open. However, only attachments with the category "To Supplier" will revise the PO, the change will be communicated to the supplier. The other attachment categories will not revise the PO, and will NOT be communicated to the supplier, and PO will keep a change record.

      Hi, Whenever a PO is finally approved, it is available for Supplier in Supplier Portal. However, after final approval of PO, the hard copy document need to be signed, scanned and attached to the PO, so that supplier can download the signed copy of PO as well.

      Hi, If we use Docusign for purchasing documents In the docusign we can send the po to supplier for signature by adding the signatories and by default the signed document gets updated as pdf and only after all signatories sign the document the po is changed to open status.
