Purchase Orders - Create Change Order Comment Field now required

November 18, 2020

As of Thursday, November 19 the “comment field” is now required when entering Purchase Order (PO) Change Orders. 

Currently, when reviewing a Change Order, any alterations made are not easily identifiable. This often adds a considerable amount of time to the review process. Now when individuals enter a Change Order, they should include a detailed comment describing the changes made. This will greatly improve the efficiency of the PO Change Order review and approval process.

When creating a Change Order, the comment field is displayed below the order line(s), as shown below:

Starting Thursday, November 19, 2020, individuals entering a PO Change order be required to provide a reason for it in the Comment box highlighted above.
