    Suggestions in Return to Vendor process
    Content:

    Hi All,

     

    While responding to a High-Tech Contract Manufacturer Client RFP, looking for suggestions to provide solution for their major pain point - ‘Return to Vendor’.

     

    For them, this is an issue, since once they receive the goods in Inventory, they may use it only after 3-6 months. While using in Work order, if they find any item is defective, they raise OSP for this item and send to Supplier for repair/replacement.

    They have to raise OSP instead of Return to Vendor, because of the delay in using the items in Work order, and by that time, Purchase Order against which item was received would have been Finally Closed.

     

    We are planning to suggest Oracle Cloud – Return to Vendor with replacement. Kindly suggest :

    1.     How can we address returns for Finally Closed POs ?

    2.     If any better solution to above problem?

     

    Thanks,

    Dev Thota

    PO PDF ZIP FILE NAMING CONVENTION3

    Title:
    PO PDF ZIP FILE NAMING CONVENTION
    Summary:
    ZIP FILE NAMING CONVENTION
    Content:

    Hi,

    When the customer uses the communicate action to communicate the Approved PO to the Supplier contact, the zip file of the PO PDF is sent to the customer. The ZIP file naming convention is PO_NUMBER_PO NUMBER. Can this naming be modified. The customer wants the naming convention to be PO_PO NUMBER. The Number following the Prefix PO is creating confusion for the Supplier. 

    Please advise.

    Regards,

    Ashok

    How to Include Back-to-back Sales Order Customer Information...2
    Topic posted September 9, 2019 by Boyuan ZhuGold Medal: 3,500+ Points, tagged Orders, Supplier Communication 
    Title:
    How to Include Back-to-back Sales Order Customer Information in the Purchase Order PDF
    Content:

    If you have a specialized back-to-back order process, you may need to communicate sales order customer information to your supplier. For example, you have asked your supplier to label packages with customer shipping information. You can configure the purchase order PDF data model and template to include customer information from the sales order. In the steps below, you will add the the customer name, address, and the scheduled arrival date to the purchase order data model.

    1. Create a copy of the Purchasing Order Data Model. Make the following edits to the draft and archive distribution data sets.  
    2. Add this statement to the SELECT clause:

      SalesOrder.PARTY_NAME CustomerName,

      SalesOrder.ADDRESS1 CustomerAddress1,

      SalesOrder.CITY CustomerCity,

      SalesOrder.STATE CustomerState,

      SalesOrder.SCHEDULE_ARRIVAL_DATE AS ScheduledArrivalDate

    3. Add this statement to the FROM clause:

      (SELECT ReqDist.DISTRIBUTION_ID, Customer.PARTY_NAME, CustomerLoc.ADDRESS1, CustomerLoc.CITY, CustomerLoc.STATE, FulfillLine.SCHEDULE_ARRIVAL_DATE FROM POR_REQ_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL ReqDist, DOS_SUPPLY_TRACKING_LINE_DOCS TrackingDoc, DOS_SUPPLY_TRACKING_LINES TrackingLine, DOO_HEADERS_ALL SalesOrderHeader, HZ_PARTIES Customer, HZ_RELATIONSHIPS CustRel, DOO_FULFILL_LINES_ALL FulfillLine, HZ_PARTY_SITES CustomerSite, HZ_LOCATIONS CustomerLoc WHERE TrackingDoc.DOCUMENT_TYPE='ORA_PR' AND TrackingDoc.DOCUMENT_LINE_ID = ReqDist.REQUISITION_LINE_ID  AND TrackingLine.TRACKING_LINE_ID = TrackingDoc.TRACKING_LINE_ID AND TrackingDoc.ACTIVE_FLAG = 1 AND TrackingLine.SUPPLY_ORDER_REFERENCE_LINE_ID = FulfillLine.FULFILL_LINE_ID AND FulfillLine.HEADER_ID = SalesOrderHeader.HEADER_ID AND FulfillLine.SHIP_TO_PARTY_SITE_ID = CustomerSite.PARTY_SITE_ID AND CustomerSite.LOCATION_ID=CustomerLoc.LOCATION_ID AND SalesOrderHeader.SOLD_TO_PARTY_CONTACT_ID = CustRel.RELATIONSHIP_ID AND CustRel.SUBJECT_TYPE = 'PERSON' AND Customer.PARTY_ID = CustRel.SUBJECT_ID) SalesOrder

    4. Add this statement to the WHERE clause: 

      AND Distribution.REQ_DISTRIBUTION_ID = SalesOrder.DISTRIBUTION_ID(+)

    5. Make corresponding changes to add the attributes to the PDF template. If you are using Collaborative Messaging, you can also add the attributes to the CMK message transform.

    How to include item attachments on purchasing documents...5.0
    Topic posted August 30, 2019 by Swati GuptaRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged How-To, Orders, Supplier Communication 
    Title:
    How to include item attachments on purchasing documents communicated to suppliers
    Content:

    The buyer creates a Purchase Order with an item. The item has a few attachments in the master item page. Once the purchase order is approved, the purchasing documents will get communicated to the supplier via e-mail or electronically. You can automatically include item attachments on the supplier e-mail communication.

    1. Login as a buyer. Once logged in, go to Setup and Maintenance -> Manage Attachment Categories task. Search the Category name TO_SUPPLIER. Add ITEM_ENTITY to the attachment.

    2. Alternatively, you can go to Setup and Maintenance -> Manage Attachment Entities task. Search for the entity name ITEM_ENTITY. Add TO_SUPPLIER to the attachment categories.

    3. Navigate to Setup and Maintenance -> Manage Item Classes task. Edit the Root Item Class.

    4. Scroll to the bottom of the basic tab and add 'To Supplier' to this list of Attachment Categories. Save and Close.

    5. The list of attachment categories on the Edit Item page should now include 'To Supplier'.

    Item attachments of category 'To Supplier' will be now added to purchasing documents communicated to suppliers via e-mail or electronically (B2B).

    Desupport Notice for Oracle B2B Gateway in Procure-to-Pay...25.0
    Topic posted August 9, 2019 by Ivan PenaBronze Crown: 15,000+ Points, tagged Agreements, Orders, Payables, Supplier Communication 
    Title:
    Desupport Notice for Oracle B2B Gateway in Procure-to-Pay B2B Communications in Update 20A
    Summary:
    B2B Gateway desupported as communication method for Procure to Pay Flow in Update 20A
    Content:

    Present Behavior:

    When setting up a supplier site in Oracle Procurement Cloud, you have three options for the B2B communication method you want to use to exchange B2B messages with the supplier:

    • None
    • Oracle B2B Gateway - Deprecated
    • Collaboration Messaging Framework

    The Oracle B2B Gateway - Deprecated and Collaboration Messaging Framework achieve the same end result, but have different setup and management capabilities. Oracle Collaboration Messaging Framework Cloud provides better capabilities to set up and manage B2B messaging with trading partners, including features such as message configuration and the ability to reprocess messages.

    Future Behavior:

    Starting in Update 20A, the Oracle B2B Gateway – Deprecated option will be desupported, and it will be removed as an option in a later release. 

    Effect on Customers:

    New Oracle Procurement Cloud implementations must not use the Oracle B2B Gateway - Deprecated option. If you are an existing customers using this B2B communication method, you must migrate your setup to use Collaboration Messaging Framework for all supplier sites enabled for B2B messaging. Refer to the Oracle Supply Chain Collaboration and Visibility Cloud What’s New for Release 19B and the Migrate Oracle B2B Trading Partner Setup to Collaboration Messaging Framework white paper (Doc ID 2564389.1) for details about the migration process.

    Supplier Portal - Supplier User need add a Attachment in...2

    Title:
    Supplier Portal - Supplier User need add a Attachment in the Purchase Order
    Summary:
    Supplier Portal - Supplier User need add a Attachment in the Purchase Order
    Content:

    With Standard Roles, the Provider does not have access to add a Attachment in the P.O.
    The supplier user needs to attach a doc (PDF / XML / XLS / others) either in the PO header or in the same PO line, thus sending, for example, the Invoice PDF issued by the supplier, so that the user of the system can associate the Invoice with the PO and later with Invoice.

    The call at Oracle states that this need is a request for future improvement. (very future).

    If anyone knows which ROLE, or Duty Role, or Privileges giving this permission please let me know.

    Has anyone here faced this same problem and acted on it?
    Please, if you can help me, thank you very much.
