Assign cart to purchaser in Sourcing Cockpit


Dear experts,

in our scenario, incomplete shopping carts (that is, without assigned source of supply) are forwarded to SoCo for further processing (bid, PO creation,…).

As per our understanding, in SoCo the strategic buyer cannot assign the processing of a single SC to a specific “responsible purchaser” .

In fact, the workload distribution allows the strategic purchaser only to change the original purchasing group of the SC (say A) to a different purchasing group (say B).

In that case however, if a purchaser from group A clicks on Carry Out sourcing, he is still able to see all shopping carts and has to manually filter them according to purchasing group, to get the carts relevant for him.

Our requirement would be to assign the processing of SC to a specific user and to pre-filter the list of shopping carts according to that user.

Could you please advise about some standard functionality (workload distribution, or others) that might be helpful?
