We are looking for solution where buyer can login and update the PO on behalf of supplier about the material status

Hi Experts,

We have a customer requirement where we want to have similar features like Advance shipping notification and PO response in SRM purchase order. Note: SUS is not activated and we are in SRM 7.03 SP10 Extended classic scenario with PDP.

We are looking for solution where buyer can login and update the PO on behalf of supplier about the material status (We don't want to give any access to supplier). Is It possible to achieve this functionality as any of standard SRM functionality?

Please suggest.

Thank You.

Regards,

Abhishek

    Hi Abhishek,

    If its only about informing the requester about availability why not use the internal note field in PO Overview?

    Buyer can update the PO and add a note like...'as per the email from supplierxxx...' and attach email or other communication from supplier?

    If there is more to the requirement than please elaborate.

    Thanks,

    Anubhav

    • Hi Abhishek,

      SRM Server-->Cross-Application Basic Settings-->Extensions and Field Control (Personalization)-->Define and Assign Actions

      Define a new action

      Assign the new action to PO header

      Control Actions-->Configure Control of Actions on Header Level

      Here you can define a custom class and method to control visibility of buttons for purchaser and requester roles

      Instead of 'Assign the new action to PO header'--> Assign the action to item level

      Instead of 'Control Actions-->Configure Control of Actions on Header Level' --> Control Actions-->Configure Control of Actions on Item Level

      Please check with a technical consultant these are relatively simple changes. Let me know if you need further help.

      Thanks,

    • Hi Ivy,

      Buyer will contact supplier and update the purchase order with details of Material status for example by when materials will be dispatched. Requester should receive the email for the same.

      Please suggest how to achieve the above functionality. Any enhancement required?

      Note: SUS is not activated.

      We are looking for functionality which is similar to Advance shipping notification and PO response or any other scope which makes the requirement fulfil.

      Thank You.
