SourceDay will display orders in different views based on the status of the order or what action needs to be taken. This display helps Buyers and Suppliers know at a glance the status of each line on a PO. The number on the view button displays how many PO lines or releases are currently listed in that view. Using the Radar Tab, Suppliers and Buyers will be able to view coming due orders all in one place.
The Radar view will display orders that have a Due Date or Ship Date within a set time frame. The default time frame is 14 calendar days. Admin users can set a different radar range per supplier if an alternate time frame is needed, especially for international suppliers with longer transit times. The radar range can be set for 2, 3, 7, 14, 21, 30, 45 and 60 days.
Once the PO Line triggers the date range for Radar, the line will move to the Radar Tab and a note will be added: "PO is due in X days. Please ship or change the date."
When PO Lines move to Radar, SourceDay can trigger a Confirmation request to Suppliers. Suppliers will be asked to confirm that they can still meet the quantity, costs, and date as listed on the PO. To learn more about Radar Confirmation click here.
Note: To capture both Ship Date and Due Date suppliers, POs move to the Radar Tab based on their Vendor Commit Date. The Vendor Commit Date is the date the supplier agrees to either ship the PO line on (for Ship Date Suppliers) or the actual due date for non-ship date suppliers.
