2426047 - Changed Purchase Order: Icon for new items not appearing in Purchase Order forms


Legend icon New Item not appearing in Purchase Order forms.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Purchase Orders view.
  3. Select required Purchase Order document and click Edit.
  4. Select Output History tab and select the last sent Purchase Order PDF file
  5. Open the Purchase Order PDF file, no New Item legend icon appears for the newly added line item


While adding the new line item, if the Purchase Order goes for re-approval, the system cannot compare the current image of Purchase Order (with newly added line item) with the previous image of the Purchase Order (without newly added line item). This is a technical system limitation and hence no legend icom for New Item appears against the newly added line added. This case is only valid if the Purchase Order goes for re-approval after addition of the new line item.
