A customer recently asked us
what the Delivery due date notification workflow in the Procurement and sourcing module is used for and how it works. My colleague, Christian Olsson, created the following response which I hope can help others who asks themselves a similar question.
The Delivery due date notification workflow is closely related to purchase requisitions and confirmation of receipt. Usually, the information in a purchase order comes directly from a purchase requisition. However, you can select a requester in the purchase order itself. The requester is the person who receives notifications about the purchase order.
A Confirmation of product receipt policy needs to be set up:
(Procurement and sourcing -> Setup -> Policies -> Confirmation of product receipt policies)
In this example, a policy has been created for vendor 3105, but you can create a policy for any vendor or all vendors
A Delivery due date notification workflow needs to be set up:
(Procurement and sourcing -> Setup -> Procurement and sourcing workflows)
A Batch job for delivery due date notification workflow needs to be set up:
(Procurement and sourcing -> Periodic -> Purchase orders -> Batch job for delivery due date notification workflow)
In case a batch server is not available, you must start the Tutorial_WorkflowProcessor:
(AOT -> Forms -> Tutorial_WorkflowProcessor)
A Requester must be set on the purchase order.:
Now the requester can go to Enterprise Portal and receive the product:
