Warn about missing Item Vendors when creating POs from SO lines
- Currently, you find out that no default vendor is set up for a specific item only on the Create Purchase Orders screen, after using the Create Purchase Order action on the Sales Orders screen.
- To provide an earlier notice of this situation, I suggest you raise a warning flag next to each SO line where the Mark for PO checkbox has been checked and no default vendor is found in the item’s record.
- To avoid a potential performance hit caused by the additional I/O, a good option would be a button/action that performs this verification on demand.
- For users who are willing to accept the potential performance hit mentioned above, it would be good to have a Preference that controls this functionality (e.g., “Warn about missing Item Vendor for PO creation”).
