Check for duplicates on the 'Customer Order Ref' field on Sales Order entry screen

Provide a check against the Customer order Ref similar to that which is built in on Supplier invoices so that duplicate customer orders are not entered.

    Add check box to customer "Customer Requires PO Reference" and drop down to check for duplicate customer PO's: No Validation; Warn for Duplicates, Do not Allow Duplicates.  This is an absolute requirement for EDI orders otherwise your 856 and 810 will be rejected.

    Acumatica-any update on this? 45 votes! Every major ERP system allows for duplicate checking on the customer PO number field in order entry.

    We see the need for this enhancement, so this item is planned to be delivered in an upcoming release (most likely 2019). Originally discussed for 2018 R2, but it did not make that release.

    Will this include option to make this field required on a customer level?

    @Andrew Zeigler, yes, there would be the checkbox in Order Type settings, like "Requires Order Reference", which will not allow creating sales orders of this type with empty Customer Order. There would also be the setting to define the system behavior on duplicates.

    Any update on this?  Seems like it has been discussed for over 4 years but hasn't been implemented yet?

    Our customers are asking for this and want to know when will this be available.  Is there something on Github?
