Delivery date proposal in purchase orders
Purchasers want a reasonable proposal for the delivery date in the purchase order.
If you do not define anything, the delivery date in the purchase order is proposed 7 days in the future which might not always fit and therefore need a manual change. That’s why you can define now the number of days in the future that is used for the proposal of delivery dates.
This will result in a less error-prone purchase order creation, especially if your typical delivery duration is less or more and users tend to forget to change it.
You can now flexibly define the number of days which the delivery date proposal considers.
The setting of the number of days can be made in the new Common Task: “Define Purchase Order Delivery Date” in the Purchase Requests and Orders Work Center.
In the purchase order item, the delivery date is calculated considering these settings.
The proposal is made for the first purchase order item. For the following items, the date is copied from the previous item (as is). Keeping this behavior is beneficial in case the user changes the date of the first item, then, the additional items will have the same date proposed.
