Release 4.7 replaces the Browser Purchase Request functionality with a seamless Reassign Requisition process. We have added a concept of an Incomplete Requisition to replace the Purchase Requests and In Progress/Reassigned Shopping Carts. We have also added support for Work Order integration and the ability to save in-progress expenses
Browsers - Say Goodbye to Purchase Requests
Following feedback on the existing browser process and considering the upcoming central procurement changes we have removed Purchase Requests in favor of browsers simply creating a requisition. The new changes make the process between browser and buyer seamless by allowing browsers to create a requisition which in turn must be 'reassigned' to a buyer within their organization unit for action.
The incomplete requisition change also effects:
- The Incomplete Requisitions feature will also be utilized to standardize the Save Checkout, Copying of requisitions and orders
- There will no longer be a Purchase Request or In Progress Shopping Cart
- The Add To Cart button for adding products from a catalog to an existing In Progress cart has been updated with a down arrow instead of the "..." and will display the available Incomplete Requisitions that the product can be added to for inclusion in the requisition
Customers have requested a way to help manage facilities spend against their work orders. To allow this spend to be managed via Unimarket we have added work order integration so that your work order system can send Unimarket work orders, and in turn authorized users can raise purchase orders against the work order.
We have added the ability to save expense claims in progress. Users can now partially complete an expense claim and save it for completion at a later date.
Other Changes and Fixes
- We have improved the integration messages for Blanket Order invoices so suppliers get more feedback
