    My Receipts search criteria issue4
    Topic posted September 4, 2019 by Tudor HangaRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged How-To, Setup, Supply & Distribution Planning Cloud 
    Title:
    My Receipts search criteria issue
    Summary:
    Since a few days the fields marked with two stars (at least one required) have changed
    Content:

    Hi,

    In our Production environment the setup related to the My Receipts search have changed.  Previously the two fields 'Purchase Order' and 'Transfer Order' used to be marked with the double star, meaning they were part of the fields with 'At least one is required'. This meant one could add the PO number and search for it. 

    Now, the system is Prompting us to give either 'Requester' or 'Entered by', and it does not accept us to give only the PO number.

    In our DEV1 instance which was cloned from Prod on 30 Aug we are not having the issue so we suspect something happened in Prod between 30-31 August to have caused the issue. 

    Could you indicate the setup to mark the fields Purchase Order and Transfer Order back with the two stars? 

    Thanks and Regards,

    Tudor

    How to include item attachments on purchasing documents...5.0

    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).

    Enterprise Contracts - Import Clause Word Template
    Topic posted August 30, 2019 by John LayBlue Ribbon: 750+ Points, tagged How-To 
    Title:
    Enterprise Contracts - Import Clause Word Template
    Summary:
    Is there a Word 'dot' template to ensure compatible formatting during clause import?
    Content:

    Company requires very large clauses containing multilevel numbered lists, images and tables. Import process has been extremely challenging where the imported format yields unexpected formatting issues within the pdf layout for Negotiations and Contracts. Issues such as table layout (fit to window settings) and behavior of numbered lists where the format uses tab indent to text vs space indent to text. Clause can appear correct in Word xml and correct in form viewer but creates unexpected line feeds and formatting appearance issues in the pdf outputs.

    Question 1) Can Oracle provide a Word template (.dot) that contains the best formatting for numbered lists and tables compatible with layouts?

    Question 2) Is Oracle considering updates to the application Rich Text Editor to include advanced formatting options?

    How to auto inform the Requested Delivery Date in purcharse order line
    Summary:
    How to auto inform the Requested Delivery Date in all purcharse order lines of a purchase order
    Content:

    Hi 

    We manage near  7000 purchase lines per week in near 600 diferent purchase order, we have purchase orders with only 1 line, and purchase orders with more than 200 lines.

    We create requisitions from a external system using web services. 

    We have more than 95% of the items with purchase agreements, and we create the purchase order automatic. For the items that we dont have agreement we create the purchase order manually.

    For us is very important to control what are going to arrive each day. Now we are informing manually a descriptive info "Delivery date" in the purchase order header, and we have customize reports review purchase order for this "Delivey date".

    We have problems because this "delivery date" is not present in "manage orders" form.  

    We are not using the standard "Requested Delivery Date" in each purchase order line, because we dont find the way to inform all the lines of a purchase order in one time, and is not possible to inform manually to each purchase line.

    Do you know if is possible?:

    1.- inform in the agreement, the conditions of delivery date so that when a purchase line is create, the requested delivery date is automatically informed

    2.-To inform the same requested delivery date for all the line of a purchase order in one time

    thanks for your help in advance

    Hello
     
    There is a way to have two types of active purchase orders for the same BU.
     
    For example have PO for normal purchases and a PO for Imports Items which will have a different numbering.
    PREFIX       NUM
    IMP -           00001
    PO  -           00001
     
    all this for the same BU

    Supervisor Hierarchy Approvals in Purchase Orders
    Topic posted August 13, 2019 by Sabarish GandaGold Medal: 3,500+ Points, tagged Approvals, Approvals/Notification, How-To 
    Title:
    Supervisor Hierarchy Approvals in Purchase Orders
    Content:

    Do anyone know if we can have only one Supervisor approver and the minimum level for approving the purchase order is Director and Above. 

    Rules are based on Dollar Amount. For Example: if the Dollar Amount >10000 and <100000 director can approve it and above that VP has to approve it.

    In approval rules I see there is option to include First and Last Approver but we are looking for only first approver and minimum level is director.

    Any Suggestions
