A purchase order cannot be linked to a purchase agreement once the PO header has been created.


This is problematic as a Buyer may not always know or remember that there is a purchase agreement in place with a vendor for certain items/procurement categories.  This is complicated even further when purchase agreements have been created for specific projects.  When this happens the Buyer needs to delete the existing PO and create a new one, ensuring that the purchase agreement is referenced.  This is very inefficient.


It would be extremely beneficial to be able to link a PO to a purchase agreement after the PO has been created.  The function could filter the active purchase agreements based on the following criteria when attempting to create the link:



  1. Vendor account

  2. Project ID (if a Project PO)

  3. Item/Procurement Category


Once the purchase agreement has been selected the user would then be able to update the PO lines to create the link as needed.

Thank you for your feedback. Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

Agree with this! Not only should be able, but also should be prompted of there is agreement for that specific PO line

As we begin our endeavor with D365, we would wholeheartedly agree with the initial comments.  We believe that we would have many occasions to utilize this functionality if it was added in.
