Record the receipt of goods on the purchase order


We will not be accepting edits to this topic, because it is generated from a business process in Lifecycle Services.

This procedure shows you how to record receipt of goods directly on a purchase order. It’s also possible to register product receipt in the warehouse, and then later record it on the purchase order. This task is typically done by a purchasing agent or an accounts payable coordinator. The example shown in this guide can be used in the USMF demo data company. The example includes steps to create a simple purchase order so that you can play the procedure as a task guide. If you were using the procedure on your own data, you would start at the Record receipt of goods subtask.
