How to transfer a shopping cart to a new employee to goods receipt when someone leaves the company?

Some of our purchase orders take a long time to fulfil and if an employee leaves the business we cannot transfer the shopping cart to the new employee. I have been told that our options are: (i) cancel the old PO and raise a new one from scratch (ii) give the new employee log-in details for the old employee (iii) give everyone access to the goods receipting cost centre (which I don't want to do as this will give them access to confidential info such as salaries for contract staff). It surprises me that we cannot transfer the shopping cart/PO to the new employee to allow them to goods receipt it. We can reroute shopping carts to different approvers so it really surprises me that this functionality doesn't exist. Surely every company has people who leave without having goods receipted all their carts?

    The requested functionality is available now in 1805 version.

    Transfer the Responsibility of Shopping Cart to Another Employee:

    You can now transfer the responsibility of a shopping cart to a different employee from the one who created the shopping cart. You can do this in the Shopping Cart Management view of Application and User Management work center.

    This is updated in Whats new section.
