    Content:

    Hi Experts,

    This questions is precisely from Procurement and Finance FBDI  and ADDFi prospective.

    Is there a predefined limit for number of records (data) that we can use in FBDI and ADFDi while we upload the data using spreadsheet?  If yes, do we have any standard oracle document around this indicates this information?

    Also, is there a setup hosted by Oracle that we can increase or decrease this limit ?

    Appreciate your help !!!

    Regards,

    Use Dropshipment functionality for expense items ?Answered9

    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

    Requisition is lost following PO Cancellation65.0
    Topic posted September 7, 2018 by Rich LinesBlue Ribbon: 750+ Points, tagged Fusion, How-To, Orders, Requisition Processing, Tip 
    Title:
    Requisition is lost following PO Cancellation
    Summary:
    Created PO has been cancelled prior to final approval - requisition is NOT in Process Requisitions pool.
    Content:

    We have recently upgraded our environment to Oracle Fusion R13 (from R12).

    I manage a group of buyers who document build requisitions and submit for approval. 

    Previously (in R12 and R11), if a submitted PO was rejected back to the buyer asking for further justification - the buyer would 'Cancel' the purchase order which would in turn return the requisition back in to the pool of requisitions in 'Process Requistions'. The buyer would then 'Return' the requisition asking the preparer to attach required justification and re-submit for approval - thus starting the process again.

    We are now finding that once a created purchase order (not fully approved) is cancelled, the requisition does NOT appear back in Process Requisitions. The purchase order is showing as cancelled (as expected) and the lines on the requisition are stating that 'This line is being processed by the buyer'. 

    As the requisition is NOT in 'Process Requisitions' any longer, we do not know how to get it returned to the preparer OR built in to a purchase order again.

    Does anybody know of steps we can take to find the requisitions we have lost and whether anything has changed between R12 and R13?

    Many thanks indeed.

    Why can't I find all POs created by different users in...55.0

    Why can't I find all POs created by different users in Purchase Order Landing page?
    Content:

    Purchase Orders Landing page is geared towards the tactical buyer user responsible for administering purchase orders processed in response to requisitions. The information is limited to those transactions where this user has been identified as the named buyer. If you are not the named buyer on any transaction, then the Landing page infolets will not include such a transaction for reporting.

    For users with procurement manager kind of roles, there is a Source to Settle Infolet page that can provide similar kind of insight into the health of the procurement operations in their respective business units. Unlike the purchase orders landing page Information content, this page is not just limited to transactions where the user is identified as the named buyer. Please refer the attached Source to Settle Infolet page screenshot designed for procurement managers to view all purchase orders across agents in single page.

    Summary:
    Approved Supplier List (ASL)
    Content:

    Hi,

    We have a requirement to restrict any purchasing (Req/Orders) for specific suppliers (Blacklisted).

    The approved supplier list functionality doesn't allow any restriction on Order creation when category and supplier from ASL is used.

    There are no Inventory items for now only categories.

    Also, i'm unable to find the source document - Blanket Purchase Agreements, there is only Contract Purchase Agreement in the drop down list under ASL source documents.The Generate Approved supplier list also doesn't show any agreement numbers.

    Please share if you have come across customers with similar requirement.

    Many thanks.

    Disabling PO Approval Email Notifications for specific user3

    Title:
    Disabling PO Approval Email Notifications for specific user
    Summary:
    I would like to turn off the email notification sent when a PO requires approval
    Content:

    Hi,

    Is it possible to disable the email notification an approver receives when a purchase order requires approval? I am part of an approval group for PO's and would only like to see my notification in the system itself (BPM). The reason for this is that each email can be up to 1MB each and I receive 100+ per day. This has a detrimental effect on my email quota when on leave (can block any further emails from coming through).

    I have a rule set up to send these email notifications to my deleted items BUT cannot set a rule up to delete from here. They need to be manually deleted.

    I do not want to stop all PO approval email notifications from being sent as other approvers within the group rely on these.

    I have tried creating a rule in 'My Messaging Filters' (BPM worklist > More Details > Preferences > Notification > Messaging Filters) to disable any emails from the address that PO approvals are sent from. This has not worked. They continue to come through via email as well as via the BPM worklist.

    Any advice would be most welcome.
