Release 29: Feature 2 – Put vendor on hold for purchase orders
The detailsThis enhancement lets you put a vendor on hold for purchase orders. It adds a new Purchase order hold type that marks a vendor as on hold for purchase orders. You won't be able to create new purchase orders for vendors that are on hold for purchase orders, but you will still be able to proceed with any open invoices or payments for these vendors.
Business ValuePutting a vendor on hold for a purchase order allows the user to restrict purchase order creation for a particular vendor while other transactions on the vendor account is still possible. This specific control is essential when partial restriction is applied to vendor transactions.
- Enable the Put vendor on hold for purchase orders from Feature management.
- Go to Procurement & Sourcing > Vendors > All Vendors
- Select the vendor and in the Vendor Tab in the Maintain group click on On hold
- In the Vendor hold drop down select Purchase order and fill the related fields and then select OK.
TransactionNow let’s try creating a purchase order from Procurement and Sourcing > Purchase order > All purchase orders. We can notice that selecting Vendor account 1001 in Create purchase order is restricted and an error is thrown.
We also tried to release an approved purchase requisition for a vendor on hold for a purchase order. It’s important to know that this feature does not restrict purchase order creation from approved purchase requisition.
Purchase order is created despite the vendor being on hold for purchase order. We’re hoping that this is resolved in the next release.
