    Managing promotional prices in Blanket Purchase Agreement

    Summary:
    Managing promotional prices in Blanket Purchase Agreement
    Content:

    Hi,

    We would like to maintain 'promotional prices' for lines in a Blanket Purchase Agreement. We are planning to use 'Price Breaks' for this purpose however in our business, we have different 'types' for promotions and need an additional field in the 'Price Break' table to state the promotion type.

    1. Would like to know if there are any other (better) options to solve this use case (managing promotional prices in BPA).

    2. Since we do not have possibility to have DFFs at price break level, would like to know if its feasible to have an additional field in the price break table like using custom objects or any other option thats feasible on Purchasing Cloud.

    Thank you in advance!

    Regards,

    Chaitanya Kobula

    Issue for Expired Purchase Order
    Summary:
    When a Purchase Order was expired, the PO status change to OPEN instead of being rejected
    Content:

    Hi Gurus-

    Is anyone tried to setup an Expiration and Escalation setup for Purchasing Order? We have setup this configuration on our side but when a PO expired the PO status change to OPEN (which means approved) even we did not approved it instead of being rejected or even just remain as Pending Approval.

    I have attached our documentation here  for more clear view of the issue

    Will highly appreciate your inputs

    Title:
    Auto receipt PO below a set value
    Summary:
    Is it possible to create a rule for this
    Content:

    Is it possible to create a rule/s in Oracle Fusion that would automatically receipt ALL lines on a purchase order IF the overall value is below a certain amount?

    We have 3 way matching set up BUT our organisation struggles with PO's not being receipted by the requester (this delaying payment to the supplier etc.)

    We would like to know if there is a way to for example auto receipt ALL the lines on a PO where the total value of that PO is £100.00 or less.

    Thanks.

    Our Requirement is to have the approvals based on Line item Category. So I am just wondering what happens if we have two lines in purchase order with different categories and different approval rules! Which route does the approval workflow follow? Is there a Oracle Document regarding this.

    Hide/Make DFF mandatory based on PO document type15.0

    Hide/Make DFF mandatory based on PO document type
    Summary:
    Requirement is to make DFF mandatory at PO header for type lookup code as "Contract Purchase Agreement" only
    Content:

    The requirement was to make a DFF mandatory (PO Headers) for Contract Purchase Agreement only. We have achieved this requirement through personalisation by using following EL expression -

    #{bindings.TypeLookupCode=='CONTRACT'?true:false}

    Note - same expression can be used to hide the segment

    Is there any other method to achieve the said requirement as personalisation may get removed post upgrade?

    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.

    Roles required for editing PO during approval2
    Topic posted April 16, 2019 by Gagan JindalGreen Ribbon: 100+ Points, tagged Approvals, How-To, Orders, Setup 
    Title:
    Roles required for editing PO during approval
    Summary:
    Approver needs to edit PO for auto-submitted PR-backed POs
    Content:

    The business case is that the finance approvers for a PO need to change the incorrectly put expenditure type on the PO distribution lines. The PO arrives to them only at the time of approval. Many POs are also auto generated, which means that they do not have any buyer's intervention. 

    Now, if the approver rejects the PO, it shall be the Buyer's onus to make changes on it. Since buyers do not take responsibility of automatically generated POs from PRs (those generated with reference to a BPA or already negotiated with supplier), rejecting a PO to buyer for changes would create a conflict. Furthermore, the signed off business process at the customer requires the Finance PO approvers to make appropriate changes on the PO when PO is automatically created from a backing PR. 

    Please suggest the required roles/privileges to be given to a finance approver so he/she can edit a PO. Do we need to setup every finance approver as a buyer in this case as well?
