Requisitions Vantage 8.03

We are using requisitions in 6.1 -- so I'm not sure how much they have changed. But Requisitions was not designed to request job material. Requisitions is for everything else: toilet paper, office supplies, chairs, furniture, computers -- anything you purchase that WON'T be used on a job.

Is anyone using requisitions?

Why does the requisition have less fields (Assembly and Material)than
the Purchase Order Entry?

Is their a workaround for attachments to requisitions?

Thanks

We attempted to use requisitions for job material but it has too many
caveats.
1) You can not control which ASM the material you are requesting goes
to - it automatically adds the part to ASM 0 at the next avaialable
MTL sequence when the PO for the requisition is created. And it can
not be moved without deleting that PO line. Once the material is
received it is stuck there (unless you delete the receipt transaction).

2) Originally the Supplier ID for the part did not come with the part
number - not sure if that is fixed yet.

3) You can not requistion parts that do not have the 'NonStock' flag
checked.

Note also that the interface assume that the creator of the
requisition understands the 'part class' system properly so that
material costs aren't transacted to the wrong GL account.

There are rumours that sometime in the future (8.03 or 8.05) that
parts on a job may be able to be re-assigned to a different ASM even
if transactions have been made against that part.

Our workaround is to by it to stock, and then either issue it to the
job when it comes in - or if we check it in time, once the job is
properly structured then we re-address the PO to buy the part to the
job. Very cumbersome.

We do not use the APPROVAL system that is available as we send our
requisitions direct to the buyer for purchase. We try to avoid
requisitions, if possible, except to buy office supplies.

There are other issues but this response is long-winded enough already.
