    Multiple Natural Account Segment Selection In Charge Account...75.0

    Title:
    Multiple Natural Account Segment Selection In Charge Account based on the Purchase Category in Requisition Screen
    Summary:
    Restrict the GL Code - Natural Account Segment while punching a requisition based on the Purchase Category selected
    Content:

    Hi All,

    We have a business requirement to manually select the Natural Account manually based on the Purchase Category. For example Category X --> 4 Natural Accounts available for selection; Category Y --> 3 Natural Accounts. 

    Currently, we already have two segments open for edits via DFF Functionality wherein the DFF values captured by requester is fed as a source to charge/expense accounts. Similarly business wants to add one more DFF Attribute for Natural Accounts which should display only GL Codes/Accounts which are mapped to that category and should be open for selection by the requester.

    Has anyone faced this business scenario or implemented such solution before ? It would be great if we can get some pointers on the same.

    If we take the DFF Approach, i am sceptical if Natural Account valueset can be generated based on the category being selected in the purchase requisition page.

    Regards,

    Puneet

    How to resolve funds not released issues on canceled...55.0

    Title:
    How to resolve funds not released issues on canceled requisitions
    Summary:
    How to resolve funds not released on requisitions that are canceled
    Content:

    Problem Statement:

    Today, you can cancel requisitions even if during the process, budgetary control fails to release funds reserved against the requisition. We allow this behavior because we do not want the requisitions to be placed on purchase orders that are no longer needed and reach the suppliers. 

    Solution proposal:

    1. As discussed in a previous article, the first step is to run the Cancel Requisition Lines in Spreadsheet from Fusion Self Service Procurement to see all open commitments that need to be liquidated in a given period

    2. You then have to decide whether to cancel these requisitions or place any approved ones on a purchase order.

    3. You can set the Budgetary control default date rule to 'System Date' as opposed to 'Current Transaction Budget Date'. This will ensure that any cancellations will have the funds released in the current period.

    NOTE: 3. is set up in the FSM Task 'Manage Budgetary Control'

    4. In the event that a requisition is canceled but the funds are not released because of a closed period, you can adopt the following process:

    a) Create a report using OTBI to see all requisition distributions with Fund Status of 'Failed'. (These are the distributions that are holding funds)

    b) Create a manual encumbrance commitment journal entry for Encumbrance Accounting reversals (If applicable)

    c) Manually fix the budget

    We do not expect that you will have too many of requisitions in this status but if you do, this is the recommendation.

    We are reviewing ideas to enhance these processes including a funds check warning upon cancellation of requisitions or other alternatives. Goes without saying these are merely ideas at this time not time bound proposals.

    Hope this article is helpful. Do let us know with your comments and ratings.

    TIN validation during supplier registration
    Content:

    Wanted to know two things if they can be doable during supplier registration

    1. TIN validation. If this can be done via 3rd party integration then more details on that integration should be helpful.

    and

    2. Ability to standardize the Tax ID/SSN prior to match (e.g. appropriate format xx-xxxxxxx or ***-xx-xxxx). I guess this is doable but not sure.

    Reinstatement Feature for OSP Work Order based Requisitions35.0
    Topic posted January 12, 2019 by AshokBlack Diamond: 60,000+ Points, tagged FAQ, Requisition Processing, Tip in Procurement > Self Service Procurement public
    Title:
    Reinstatement Feature for OSP Work Order based Requisitions
    Summary:
    What is the expected behavior on reinstatement of OSP Work Order based Requisitions
    Content:

    Customers / Support

    I thought I would share this quick feature factoid related to Outside Service Processing Work Order based Requisitions. I recently encountered a customer issue that turned out to be lack of adequate information on this topic.

    Details:

    1. OSP Work Order based Requisitions are 'Externally Managed' ergo, they are only available from the Buyers Workarea either as a purchase order or in the Process Requisitions flow awaiting creation into a purchase order

    2. Unlike other 'externally managed' requisitions, an OSP requisition line cannot be reinstated. This means if the purchase order created from an OSP requisition is 'Canceled', the requisition line cannot be placed back into the Process Requisitions queue to be processed into another purchase order.

    3. Following from 2, what happens is that the requisition line is canceled and this is communicated to the work order system for them to then allow the work order users to re-initiate a new 'requisition to order' process for that Work Order.

    4. I alluded to this earlier, for other kinds of externally managed requisitions (Drop Ship order based requisitions for instance), the requisition line is reinstated and the buyer can process that line into a new purchase order from the Process Requisitions queue. The behavior noticed for OSP orders are unique and hence called out for your attention.
