    Title:
    Need to attach the final signed documents from Supplier to Purchase Order
    Summary:
    Our requirement is we need attach a final signed legal document from Supplier after the Purchase order is in open status
    Content:

    When we send out Purchase order to Supplier, we have requirement to send legal document with it and once the supplier has signed this document and send it back to us, we need attach to that PO in oracle for our tracking purpose, but this is creating the change order. So, is there a way where we can avoid this change order to initiate when we attach a legal document?

    Here is the Scenario

    Problem Summary
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Trying to setup shared service procurement and not able to select proper Bill-To on the Supplier Master

    Problem Description
    ---------------------------------------------------
    We have three BUs
    1. OC Centralized Procurement BU
       a. Acting as centralized procurement BU
       b. No Ledger/LE attached to this BU
    2. OC Enterprises BU (in US and assigned to Ledger 1)
       a. Responsible for AP invoicing and payments
       b. Ledger: Controlled Entities USD

    How to change the Supplier after the PO is in Open statusAnswered9

    How to change the Supplier after the PO is in Open status
    Content:

    Is there a way to change the supplier after the PO is fully approved and in Open status.

    Business requirement:

    We have 2 suppliers with almost same name with minor difference in their names, so buyer selected the wrong Supplier and created a PO and now it has been fully approved. Now, we found that the PO should have been created with the other supplier. So, is there a way or custom role that allows buyer to change supplier during change order process.

    Hi,

    I would like to know where we can enable/disable Requisition and Purchase order workflow. we already configured the workflows for PR and PO. But we want to know is there any flag where we have to enable like For AP invoice workflow we enable the check box "Enable invoice approval" in the Manage invoice options task. Similar way do we have any configuration we need to turn on/off for PR and PO approvals?

    Use Dropshipment functionality for expense items ?Answered9

    Title:
    Use Dropshipment functionality for expense items ?
    Summary:
    Is it possible to use Oracle drop-shipment flow for a expense item.?
    Content:

    Hi,

    My client provides device installation services to its customers. But instead of doing the installation itself, it outsources it to third party vendors. We want to model this as a drop-shipment flow in Oracle cloud, even though there is no real shipment happening. We will define the installation service as an expense item in the system.

    Creation of a sales order should automatically trigger a purchase requisition and PO. and the supplier invoice should trigger the PO receipt and customer shipment and invoice. 

    I have gone through the documentation and also the release training (R11). As far as I understood, the drop-shipment feature in Oracle is predominantly for Inventory items. Therefore will like to know if it is possible to use the drop-shipment functionality for an expense items too and if there are any possible issues that we should be aware of. Please provide your inputs.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Mohanish Mahajan

    B2B PO CommunicationAnswered9

    Can not configure B2B PO communication
    Content:

    Hi,

    I've been trying to get my approved PO's sent out through B2B communication and I've done all the setup as mentioned on this DOC ID: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=1995064.1

    However, they only talk about integration with OSN. I want to simply send the file by e-mail or store it as a file on a location. But those setups are not covered. For example for email protocol, it asks me my email id and host name, I have no idea what to fill in. For File protocol it simply asks for a folder.

    But for both protocols I'm getting the same error:

    Transport error: [MsgCannotBeSent] SMTP message cannot be sent.

    Anyone who has experience with this? I've searched forums and communities but haven't found anything. My next step will be an SR.

    Thanks
