    Default Requestor Name in a Purchase Order
    Default Requestor Name in a Purchase Order line from Agreement


    When we add lines from an blanket agreement catalog to a PO, we want the “requesters” name should auto fill since the agreement is already approved.Please let me know if there is any way to achieve this ?

    Thank you.

      Hi Siva,


      Last I had checked, this was not possible. We wanted to take advantage of "My Receipts" page for receiving, but we learned that you can receive from "My Receipts" only if the PO has a requester, so we looked into auto-filling requester with buyer or at least making he field required. The only option available for page customization. But my information is from  a few months back. So something might have changed.

        I am not aware of any option to default the requestor based on blanket agreement.

        For the requirement to let other users (not requestor or preparer of requisition) be able to receive requisitions there is a privilege that can be added to the role.

        Privilege name : Create Self-Service All Requisition Receiving Receipt

        Can you ellobrate on steps how to achieve this . We have similar requirements

      The Requester's name should autopopulate on the PO from the Requisition that the PO is being created from. The Requester is different from the Buyer which is autopopulated fon the PO from the Agreement. If you are not using Requisitions there is no way to autopopulate the Requester.
