SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Go to Purchase Requests view
  3. Select the relevant Purchase Request
  4. Select Edit & navigate to Items tab
  5. You do not have option for mass removal of items or delete action for the multiple line items at a time


In the current release, it is not possible to remove the line items with multiple selections. Hence mass removal or deletion of line items is not possible. 


The behavior requires a major changes in the software coding and can be taken as a new requirement. Hence I kindly request you to post the idea in influence forum -
