1917199 - Automatically Populate Ship-To Location or Site in the Purchase Order Line Items.

Symptom

You are creating a purchase order. You want the system to automatically determine the Ship-To Location or Site while entering each line item in the order.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Request and Orders work center.
  2. Navigate to Common Tasks view and choose the option New Purchase Order.
  3. In the New Purchase Order screen choose the View All button, enter the relevant mandatory fields in the General tab and navigate to the Items tab.
  4. Choose the button Add Row and enter the product details.
  5. You can see that the Ship-To Location ID or Site is not being populated automatically by the system.

Cause

If the Company has only one ship to location or Site maintained then we default it. If multiple ship to locations / Multiple sites are maintained we don’t default  currently.

Resolution

Submit your new requirements on Customer Influence Forum at below link

also currently if there are any blocked sites existing , then system still considers them and thus cannot default the site in such case as well, but developers are going to fix this in one of the future releases.
