Fourth’s Purchasing & Inventory release 4.6.96 includes new functionality. Specifically:
- UI Changes to the ‘Create PO from Requisition’ screen
Release Date: 19th (EMEA) / 22nd Aug (USA) 2019
Reason for the Change
Due to some issues encountered with Requisitions marked as ‘PO Created’ where no POs had actually been created, some minor changes will be made to the UI. This will help reduce the amount of human error seen here and also give users better understanding of which Requisitions the items are being ordered against.
All Purchasing & Inventory users.
UI Changes to Create PO from Requisition Screen
When “Creating POs from Requisition”, it is possible for multiple Requisitions to be selected for processing that have the same product selected (for Order/Requisition) in them.
Fig.1 – Multiple Requisitions being selected for “Process”
As per normal functionality, on the Create PO from Requisition form, lines from the Requisitions are grouped by Product, and Quantities are summed.

In the case where a Product exists in multiple Requisitions, the Quantity will no longer be editable on the main grid, as this would not necessarily reflect the desired distribution of Order Quantity by Requisition.
If any changes to Quantities for such products are required they should be done in the Outlets grid (see Fig.2). Each line there represents Requisition for Outlet.
An additional column has been added to the Outlets grid called ‘Requisition Number’, to help the user easily differentiate between Requisitions.
Please Note (Existing Functionality)
If multiple Requisitions are being processed and one or many of them end up with all items in them having 0 as Order Quantity, they will be marked as ‘Processed’ even though no Order will be created for them. This is due to the fact that they were selected for processing and processed, but the Quantity was set to 0 therefore no Order was created.
