The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series Feature of the Day posts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 on which I am following and adding commentary. The series index for this series of posts is here.
The twenty-fifth Feature of the Day is Purchase Requisition Partial Purchase.
When creating a purchase order from a purchase requisition you now have the option to change the quantity on the PO. For example, if the purchase requisition has a quantity of 100, when the PO is created you can change that quantity to a lower quantity, such as 90. The remaining quantity is then canceled on the purchase order.
I'm somewhat split on whether I think this is a good addition. If you want fewer items then the purchase requisition should be raised for the smaller quantity; on the other hand, being able to purchase fewer when creating rthe purchase order, gives more flexibility.
