New User Interface – Removal of Cart and Checkout Tabs
As part of ongoing efforts to streamline and update the shopping and transaction processes in the Purchase application, we have removed the Cart and Checkout tabs with the new interface.
The Cart screen can be accessed by selecting the Cart button. The screen will continue to display all items that have been added to the cart but not converted to a transaction.
Transactions can be viewed by selecting the Transactions link beneath the search bar. This will bring the user to the list of open transactions.
These changes do not impact the existing interface. Please contact Customer Support if you have any questions regarding the new user interface, or if you would like to test the new user interface in your training environment.
Invoice Tolerance settings – Ability to Enable/Disable
The Invoice Tolerance screen has been modified to allow entities to opt in to specific tolerances. Any tolerance value with the Enable checkbox checked will be considered when calculating an invoice’s match status. Any tolerance value that is not checked will not be considered when calculating an invoice’s match status.
Setting the value in an Enabled tolerance field to blank or zero indicates an exact tolerance (that is, any invoice value that does not exactly match the Purchase Order is considered a failure.)
Any values set for your entity prior to this enhancement have been maintained.
Bids and Quotes
Customer Logo added to PDF
If a Customer Logo exists in Edit Entity Settings, it will display at the top of each page in the PDF version of a sourcing event when printed from the Manage or Award tabs. A supplier who generates an event PDF from the Supplier Portal or the Event Posting Board will also see the Customer Logo.
Award – Additional Support for Excel Output
The Print option found within a supplier’s response in the Award tab can be used to generate a printout containing only the selected supplier’s response. In addition, the Print option found within the Compare Responses screen can be used to generate a printout limited to the responses of the suppliers selected for comparison.
Supplier Portal – Line Item Bid Award View / Print
When accessing an event with a line item bid section, an Awarded column will display on the far left. Any items awarded to the supplier will display with the corresponding Awarded checkbox checked.
This data will also be available if the supplier selects the Print option from the Next Step drop-down after the event’s award has been published. An Awarded column will display for each line item bid section, and the column will display a Yes entry for any items awarded to the supplier.
Please contact Customer Support if you would like more information regarding Line Item Bid.
