As the first steps of the replacement of Business Portal, Microsoft introduced purchase requisitions and Workflow 2.0 in Microsoft Dynamics GP. I think both of these are great additions to Dynamics GP, but there is a little disconnect between purchase requisitions and purchase orders.
The issue is that there is no easy out-of-the-box way of notifying the user who created a purchase requisition when it is converted into a purchase order.
Well, SMikeG has posted on MS Connect suggesting that Workflow 2.0 be enhanced to allow the purchase order number to be returned to the user who created the purchase requisition when it is converted into a purchase order. This would allow the user to know that the purchase order has been created from the purchase requisition and is to be sent to the vendor.
The suggestion can be found here where you can also cast your vote.
If you have an MS Connect suggestions you want publicised, contact me with details.
