    How to create UNSPSC reports
    Content:

    We have client requirement to setup the UNSPSC codes structure along with the commodity (category) codes in Oracle Procurement.

    The procurement category hierarchy ( hierarchy levels) along with functional area catalog (categories) in Oracle fusion will partially meet this requirement but there is no field for UNSPSC codes.

    - Which field can be used for the UNSPSC codes?

    - How can I build a report using the procurement hierarchy levels and categories assigned to each level?

    - Is it possible to develop a report on level 1 and report spend on categories under level 1? Aggregated report based on the top category level.

    - Is it possible to drill down from level 1 to level 3 to analyse spend at each UNSPSC level.

    UNSPSC example is given below. 

    Level 1   - Information Technology Broadcasting and Telecommunications (43000000)

    Level 2   - Software (43230000)

    Level 3 - Finance accounting and enterprise resource planning ERP software (43231600)

           Level 4 (category) - Financial analysis software (43231604)

     

    Thanks.

    Our purchasing team wants to get a report that includes a list of outstanding purchase orders that specifically includes remaining encumbrance balances. Is there any delivered report that we just aren't finding, or has anyone had luck creating this as a report? Thanks!

    Difference between Task Level and Assignee Level
    Summary:
    While configuring Expiration Settings we have three options. A good document to explain the functionality would help
    Content:

    Hi All,

    While configuring Expiration Settings in PO or any Approval workflow three options exist:

    1. Do Nothing - Self Explanatory.

    2. Task Level

    3. Assignee Level

    I would like to understand the difference between option 2 and 3. Also, how do these options work in conjunction with "Maximum Escalation Levels". Also, I do not find all approver titles in the field "Highest Approver Title". Any pointers to documentation regarding this would help. Attached is a screen from BPM.

    Thanks, Bala.
