    Hi @Omer Aharonovich​ ,

     

    Thanks for another great question!

     

    General Purchase Requisition logic is Contract->Quotation->Primary Vendor so if a Product that has a Primary Vendor ticked also has a Contract &/or Quotation, the lower priced Vendor will be listed.

     

    If no Contract &/or Quotation is valid for the Delivery Date on the PR, then the Primary Vendor will be listed.

     

    At the time of converting the PR to the PO, appropriate access rights would allow the user to select 'Primary Vendor' as an option instead, overriding the previously visible lower priced Vendor.

     

    I hope this answers your query?

     

    Best

    ​purchase request & PO must match with each other (amount) when we select primary vendor regardless of lowest price entered in system.

     

    thanks

    It's great to see lots of customers asking the same question here on the community.

    Hopefully my response above answers your question on how it operates?

    If not please let me know if you have a specific issue.

    Dear Team,

    I hope you are well.

    I have an inquiry regarding the primary vendor option.

    So under the product detail, there is the vendor tab, which you can tick the primary vendor.

    However, I am not sure what does it do as even when I ticked the primary vendor and create a purchase requisition with primary vendor chosen and system will picked only primary vendor price or it will picked lowest entered quotation.  

    Can you kindly advise?

    Many thanks

    All the Best.

    Hi Anis,

     

    This may depend on your settings. The article below:

     

    https://fc.force.com/customer/s/article/Purchasing-Inventory-Administration-Property-Preferences-Requisition

     

    covers the systems ability to 'Lock Requisitions' &/or 'Lock Vendors in Requisitions’.

     

    Hopefully this will give you the answers you require.

    Am I correct in understanding (from the article linked above) that in Lock Vendor in Requisition mode, the system will default to a low cost vendor (if there is valid quotation) and then to the primary vendor (if there is no valid quotation for delivery date)?

     

    Is there a setting at the user level that would grant members of a specific user group access to override the lock vendor in requisition mode?

     

    Many thanks!

    Hi there Halima,

     

    Thank you for that query. Unfortunately there's no way for a user to be able to change the vendor if they are part of that property and "vendor lock" has been enabled.

     

    Thank you
