    Title:
    How to auto inform the Requested Delivery Date in purcharse order line
    Summary:
    How to auto inform the Requested Delivery Date in all purcharse order lines of a purchase order
    Content:

    Hi 

    We manage near  7000 purchase lines per week in near 600 diferent purchase order, we have purchase orders with only 1 line, and purchase orders with more than 200 lines.

    We create requisitions from a external system using web services. 

    We have more than 95% of the items with purchase agreements, and we create the purchase order automatic. For the items that we dont have agreement we create the purchase order manually.

    For us is very important to control what are going to arrive each day. Now we are informing manually a descriptive info "Delivery date" in the purchase order header, and we have customize reports review purchase order for this "Delivey date".

    We have problems because this "delivery date" is not present in "manage orders" form.  

    We are not using the standard "Requested Delivery Date" in each purchase order line, because we dont find the way to inform all the lines of a purchase order in one time, and is not possible to inform manually to each purchase line.

    Do you know if is possible?:

    1.- inform in the agreement, the conditions of delivery date so that when a purchase line is create, the requested delivery date is automatically informed

    2.-To inform the same requested delivery date for all the line of a purchase order in one time

    thanks for your help in advance

    Please check out the 19a feature that automatically defaults requested dates based on specified lead time of the agreement line item.

      Hi Suman

      Thank you for your help,

      I have activated this new functionality, but it is so basic for us because you can only set up a "lead time". In our case, the lead time depend on the day of the week that the request was make, normally the suppliers have 2 o 3 delivery days per week, for example Mondays and Thursday, if you make the order on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday the supplier delivery it on Monday, if you make it on Saturday, Monday or Tuesday the supplier delivery it on Thursday.

      Also, it is very important for us to change the delivery requested day in one time, because is usual, that the supplier changes the date of delivery before we submit it

      regards

        Understand. You would like to see the calculation to take into account some sort of a supplier delivery calendar. That kind of functionality I believe is supported on requests originating from our Planning product. The driver for the feature delivered in 19A was more for indirect procurement requests originating in Self Service Procurement to ensure orders don't go out with dates that provides suppliers with lead times lesser than agreed to in the BPA.

      Thanks Suman, I have more question related

      For change the delivery requested day of all the lines of a order in one time, do you know any way? 

      Do you know if there is a way to link the attributedate1 of the purchase order header with the requested delivery date of the purchase order lines? I´m looking something like a Trigger

      Regards

        Hi Javier, Can you explain what are you trying to do here? Specifically on your statement about linking attributedate1 and requested delivery date.

    • Javier Del Cabo

      Hi Nitin

       We receive a lot of different good each day. We have to check every day, that all the lines that should arrive today have arrived. And with the line not received, or received partial, we have to cancel it, or change the requested delivery date. That we do it In order to know exactly what we are going to receive each day

      we can not inform manually each purchase line with the request delivery date. What we do now is inform the attributedate1 of purchase header. We have configured a BI report to control open purchase lines of purchase orders with  attributedate1= today. With this report, we have to go to "manage orders" page, look each  purchase order to change the status.

      What we want is use the  delivery requested date in order to use, the "manage order " screen, to filter directly the open lines with a delivery requested date = today

      Regards
