    Restrict Purchasing Catalog Access For Specific Business Unit
    Content:

    While creating the catalog using functional area catalogs, users are not able to restrict these categories to specific BU and also not able to create different catalogs for other BU.

    For the purchasing catalog which is defined under each functional area , how can users create different catalogs for different BU?

    Using a Corporate Card on Oracle Supplier Network?

    Title:
    Using a Corporate Card on Oracle Supplier Network?
    Summary:
    Is there anyway to allow users to use their p-cards on a punch out or in OSN instead of having to do a requisition?
    Content:

    We are currently using a third party vendor that integrates with our Cloud procurement module to manage our strategic sourcing initiatives. We would like to move off this third party and go to punch outs or Oracle Supplier Network.  The one advantage of the third party vendor is that it allows our users to purchase items using our organization's corporate cards, instead of having to do a requisition.  Is there any feature in Oracle Procurement Cloud or Oracle Supplier Network that would allow us to use corporate cards on our negotiated contracts with our suppliers, rather than having our users need to complete a requisition? I realize corporate cards are in the expenses module, but this question is really a procurement one.  In short, our end users do not like using our negotiated sourcing contracts because they then have to do a requisition. They would rather use their purchasing card to order supplies and then do an expense report to reconcile their purchasing card. Is there anyway to allow users to use their p-cards on a punch out or in OSN?

    How to View the receipts entered by other users without Self Service Receiving All Requisitions Job
    Content:

    We have scenario where the user who entered the receipt against a requisition left the company.  A new person joined in his place.

    We have reassigned the requisition to the new person.  But this new person is not able to view the receipt entered against the requisition.  We need to reverse the receipt entered by the person who left the company.

    User who has the privilege of Self Service Receiving All Requisitions Job can reverse it.  But is there any other option?

     

    Thanks,

    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.

    How to change the Supplier after the PO is in Open statusAnswered9

    How to change the Supplier after the PO is in Open status
    Content:

    Is there a way to change the supplier after the PO is fully approved and in Open status.

    Business requirement:

    We have 2 suppliers with almost same name with minor difference in their names, so buyer selected the wrong Supplier and created a PO and now it has been fully approved. Now, we found that the PO should have been created with the other supplier. So, is there a way or custom role that allows buyer to change supplier during change order process.

    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on...15.0

    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location
    Summary:
    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location
    Content:

    Hi,

    Please let me know if there is any workaround or custom solution to achieve the below requirements in Oracle Purchasing Cloud.

    Scenario: Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location

    Use Cases

    1. Manual Purchase requisition: Requestor selects the ship-to location and Catalogue item, the system automatically populates the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time>. This data flows to the PO as Promise Date
    2. Min-Max Planning based Purchase Requisitions: Min-Max planning is run at Org/Sub Inventory level which automatically populates the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time>. This data flows to the PO as Promise Date

    As-Is Business Process: Client maintains BPA for each catalogue item with the supplier but doesn’t use ship-to location on the BPA. Lead time is separately managed in custom form for each Item-Ship-to combination. When the user enters PR or min-max planning triggers a PR, customization calculated the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time> (as maintained in the mentioned custom form), and populates on PR. This need-by date flows to the PO as the promised date. Buyer can override this date if there are concerns with the promise date from the supplier side.

     

    Why is it critical:

    1. To make sure the right expectations are set up with the requestor about the availability of purchases
    2. To make sure inventory specialists sees correct Supply/Demand picture as promise date is used as supply cut-off date. This helps in avoiding the inventory stock-out situations
    3. To enforce the SLA agreements with vendors, and vendor’s performance can be measured
    4. Extra work to override the populated promise date which will be sysdate if this solution is not in place. Separate communication needs to happen to change this as per SLA agreement which is extra work

    Requirements:

    1. Show end user what is the lead time for that ship-to location for the item?
    2. Auto-populate <SysDate + Lead time> as the promise date on PR/PO. This should be applicable to both manual as well as planning (Min-max) based PR
    3. Supply and Demand report should be able to use the Lead time while calculating the demand/supply based on the cut-off date
    4. Ability to see/review updates on PO promise data by supplier
