When I use the Accept/Propose Change action on a PO Line some lines have an Accept option and some lines have Confirm as the option, why and how are these actions different?
Recently, SourceDay introduced the Confirm action to suppliers to help provide clarity on PO Lines. Confirm is used in three scenarios:
1. Your buyer has requested a confirmation when lines move onto the Radar Tab. These orders are coming due and the buyer would like you to confirm that you can still meet the values on the PO.
2. Your buyer has rejected your proposed changes on a PO Line. This will send the PO Line back to your updates tab and require you to either Confirm the original values on the PO Line or propose new values for the Cost, Quantity, &/or Date.
3. Your buyer has made changes to the PO Line within their ERP and is sending you an update. This will require you to confirm the new values or propose changes.
4. Your buyer is asking you to review and confirm Planned orders. This will depend on your buyer's unique configuration and will not apply to all suppliers.
The Accept action will be available when the buyer proposes changes on the PO Line within SourceDay. These two distinctions within SourceDay are designed to provide greater clarity and insight on what is happening on the PO Line. Remember you can always view the order's history to learn more.
