Purchase Quotation Gets More Flexible

When the holidays season approaches we all become professional buyers. We check different brands, read the small print, compare discounts, double check prices and eventually go for the best offer we found. While for most of us it’s just these specific couple of weeks, professional buyers do it all year long – it’s their job! When collecting and recording purchase quotations for certain purpose there may be cases where multiple purchase quotations will be assigned with the same Group Number. To improve traceability and transparency, SAP Business One identifies these cases, notifies you in real time and allows you to choose whether to assign similar or different Group Number to a given purchase quotation:

To assign different Group Number choose “No”, to assign the same, choose “Yes”. The system message appears when two or more users add purchase quotations in parallel or when creating purchase quotation from a draft with a Group Number that is already used in another purchase quotation.

Similar to other system messages, you can also apply your decision to future cases by selecting the checkbox “Remember My Answer and Do Not Show This Message Again”.
