Requisition Worksheet functionality in IM Warehouse example
Purchase Order Directed functionality is equivalent to entering the items to purchase in the requisition worksheet and creating the order. Using the standard requisition worksheet functionality of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central gives great possibilities for complex purchasing.
For example, item 1908-S has a default vendor for Chronus, Vendor No. 4000 for any location of the company.
This purchasing criterion has an exception in Este Location, and purchases for this location must be addressed to another Vendor No. and therefore an Stockkeeping Unit is created to set for Este Location another default Vendor, No. 2000.
If an user creates a Purchase Order Directed from IM Warehouse for item 1908-S and is logged in Este Location the resulting Purchase Order will be assigned to Vendor No. 2000, but if the user is logged in any other location, the resulting Purchase Order will be assigned to Vendor No. 4000 as default one.
