Drive the PO Receipt screen by PO instead of Vendor

Typically, customers enter PO Receipts starting/beginning with the PO# for which they're doing a receipt (not by entering a Vendor).  Often, a person in receiving will have access to the PO (via a label, etc.) before seeing the Vendor.  This would speed the process in that by entering a PO number, the vendor and PO lines could automatically come in to the grid.  This would eliminate steps and align the process more closely with real-world experiences.  Right now, it's at least 3 steps/clicks just to add a PO line to the receipt screen.

    Maybe as an option, but not the rule.  I understand this request as most shipments only have one PO on them, but our business does get a significant number of shipments with multiple PO's.  An option to receive by Vendor or by PO would be a time saver.

    This is a great idea.

    This is so logical I find it hard to believe it had to be submitted as an idea.  :-)
