    Hi Sunny,

    VMI is on the roadmap for Supply Chain Collaboration Cloud. I don't believe they have a forum/idea lab here on Customer Connect yet.

    Kind regards,
    Manjula

    Yes, I am aware that CVMI is available in cloud.

    As per your suggestion, I have posted the same topic in inventory subject area as well.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Hi Sunny,

    Support for consigned inventory is provided in Oracle Purchasing Cloud. Please refer to this TOI for more information. I understand VMI may or may not involve consignment but want to make sure you are aware of this feature.

    I's suggest you post this question to the inventory management forum as well.

    Thanks,

    Ivan

    Hi,

    Actually, I'm hoping Oracle Corp will reply since they monitor these posts... we're actually looking for the bug fix/release notes specific to FEB Quarterly Patch Bunch.. not the functionalities.. I don't think Oracle has released them so this is to get the public reminder to them :)

    Hi Yasmin,

    Your understanding is correct.

    Hi Ivan,

    Thank you so much for your help,

    So if we want the Sold-To LE to match the PR BU then we select set to Allow or Warning

    and if we want the Sold-To LE to match the Ship-to Le then we set to Error

    But by all means, buyrs can't  manually select the sold-to LE

    Do I understand it correctly?

    Hi,

    Yes, Complex PO feature is not yet available in Cloud Procurement. However to help you better with a workaround, request you to provide your exact business use case. This will also help us to touch base with you, when we gather the requirements from different customers.

    Couple of suggestions:

    1. The workaround that many use would be to model the milestones after purchase order lines.

    2. Oracle Projects Portfolio Management Cloud can also be considered whether your use case can be met. (leverage project-task milestone based payments). You can refer  https://cloud.oracle.com/project-management-cloud

    As mentioned, please provide your use case to know which feature of services procurement (Progressive Payment, Retention, Recoupment, Advance, Work confirmation,etc) is needed.

    Thanks,

    Manav

    This is not a supply chain planning question. Please post to Fusion Purchasing.

  • Yasmin

    Thanks, Ivan,

    I'm asking generally (not only employee expenses) it can be Purchase Requestions.

    Hi Yasmin,

    You can setup approval rules for the purchase order to be routed for approval using the requester's supervisory hierarchy.
