    Disabling PO Approval Email Notifications for specific user3

    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.

    Oracle fusion - How to provent changes to a requisition after PO is created and sent to the venor
    Summary:
    Oracle fusion allows a requester to change a requistion that is approved and PO created
    Content:

    Oracle Fusion R13 Procurement - Requester is able to change an approved requisition irrespective of whether a PO was created and sent to the Vendor. No email notification is sent to the buyer nor the requisition is sent for approval workflow again.  How are other customers handling this situation?   Thanks for any help.

    Note: Oracle support has confirmed that there is no way to prevent changing an approved requisition nor notifying the buyer.

    Title:
    Need the concept/logic behind why Retroactive pricing is viable only with Non-Cumulative Price Break and not with Cumulative Price Break in BPA on Procurement Cloud ?
    Summary:
    We have a request from our client to have Retroactive pricing under Cumulative Price break in Blanket Purchase Agreement.
    Content:

    Hi all,

    Based on my research,

    For a retroactive pricing to reflect, it is suggested to choose price break type as Non-Cumulative.

    Need to understand the relation between Price Break and Retroactive Pricing, an explanation with a Business example would help.

    Please refer this document ID in My Oracle Support - (Doc ID 2259539.1) 

    Thank you,

    What is the configuration setup to default the Retroactive Pricing check box in Blanket Purchase Agreement in Procurement Cloud ?
    Summary:
    We have client request to configure the retroactive pricing to default as unchecked.
    Content:

    Hi all,

    Based on my research, Implementation Guide points us to the following task path, - Define Procurement Configuration Options >> Configure Procurement Business Function >> Allow Retroactive pricing.

    But I'm not able to see this option in the above path. Refer attachment

    Any info on why this option is missing would help and if is there any other setups that needs to be done, please do point it out.

    Thank you,

    Regards,

    Hello,

    I have implemented PO setup in R13 instance and not able to approve PO due to below error.

    /*• An error occurred in your request for approval. Contact your help desk. (PO-2055548) Details: Your help desk can use the following information to obtain a more detailed description of this incident: Incident ID: , Server Domain: , Server Instance: {DB_INSTANCE_NAME}, Application Name: {APPLICATION_NAME}, Additional Information:*/

    Simple rule has been defined to approve PO. Condition If  Procurement BU Equals = Business Unit, automatically PO should be approve.

    I noticed one issue during making rule i.e able to enable rule but not able to deploy. Is it causing issue?

    'Withdrawn: Approve Purchase Order' email...2
    Topic posted September 10, 2018 by Rich LinesBlue Ribbon: 750+ Points, tagged Approvals, Approvals/Notification, Fusion, How-To, Notifications, Setup 
    Title:
    'Withdrawn: Approve Purchase Order' email notifications
    Summary:
    I am seeking guidance on how to disable these notifications coming through to approval group members.
    Content:

    We have recently upgraded to Oracle Fusion R13 (18B). Members of the approval group for purchase orders are now receiving an FYI type email notification when another member of the group approves a PO. The email only comes through 3 x days AFTER the PO was originally approved. These notifications are clogging up our email accounts and we would like to disable.

    Can anybody confirm the steps I need to undertake to stop this notification from being actioned? I do not wish to affect any other notifications that are set up (we do not have notifications set up to inform of PO approval however).

    I believe the task might be 'DocumentApproval'. Within the 'Notifications' tab, I can see that 'Enable Reminder' is checked and the frequency is set as every 3 x days. This would correspond to when we receive these notifications compared to when the PO was approved. Would simply un-ticking this box have the desired effect?

    Many thanks
