Return to Vendor Enhancements
The existing Returns functionality has been extended/enhanced to enable you to return goods/materials to suppliers and ship them back to the supplier location.The Return to Vendor process can be executed in one of the following three ways:
  • When you perform returns in the same organization as you received the goods in.
  • When you return goods from an organization that is different from the organization you received the goods in.
  • When you return goods without a reference document.
Automatic Updates to General Ledger (GL) Date
Buyers can specify the GL date (encumbrance date) for each distribution against a line at the time of creating purchase orders. If the value of the GL Date is invalid, for example, the date is in a closed GL period, or in a period that is not yet open, then the application automatically defaults the GL date to the system date if the current period is open. The GL date is also validated during the time the purchase order is submitted for approval. To use this feature, the value of the PO: Validate GL Date Period profile option must be set to the newly introduced Redefault value.
Support for Importing Complex Purchase Orders
Purchasing Users can now import complex purchase orders using the PDOI (Purchasing Document Open Interface).
Support for Additional Extension Hooks
Oracle Purchasing provides additional extension hooks that enable usage of custom validations for the Purchase Order submission process. Buyers now have the ability to make changes to the target document during the Autocreate flow.
Use Oracle Approvals Management (AME) for Purchase Order (PO) for Purchase Order Review, Approval, and Multiple E-Signatures
Currently, purchase orders can be routed for approval to only approvers defined in a position hierarchy or supervisor hierarchy.
With this release, Oracle Purchasing provides the flexibility to add any individual or a group of individuals to the approval hierarchy (position or supervisor) so that purchase orders can be routed for review, approval, and multiple e-signatures. To setup and use this feature, Oracle Purchasing provides the Purchase Order Approval AME transaction type and PO AME Approval Top Process, a workflow process. To use the feature, the following values must be set in the Document Styles page:
  • PO Approval in the Approval Workflow field.
  • PO AME Approval Top Process in the Workflow Startup Process field.
  • Purchase Order Approval in the AME Transaction Type.
Depending on business requirements, purchasing administrators can setup either parallel or serial process in AME for purchase order review, approval, and multiple e-signatures. Voting method can be First responder wins, Consensus, or Serial. Enterprises can use the predefined AME transaction type and PO workflow process or they can create custom transaction type and workflow process based on the supplied components.
This feature provides the PO Approval Notification Region (POApprvNotifRN ) configurable region to enable enterprises to personalize the notification page according to their business requirements. This region is available in the notification body. You can personalize this region to add or remove columns according to business needs. For example, you can configure this region to control what approvers can view or cannot view in the notification.
Withdraw Purchase Orders
Buyers can now withdraw purchase orders that are at the In Process or Pre-Approved status.
Purchasing administrators can control the buyers ability to withdraw purchase orders and define whether withdrawal notifications can be sent when purchase orders are withdrawn. These controls can be defined in the new Document Controls region of the Document Style page.
Note : The Withdraw PO feature is supported in OAF pages only and not supported in Forms.
