Questions Reopen Subcontract
I am running into a scenario where a subcontractor finishes their work early in a project (bills me 100% complete). When Acumatica receives a bill fulfilling the commitment, the commitment changes to a status of "Closed". But sometimes we may use that subcontractor again on the SAME project but simply as a change order to the original contract. However, with the status of "Closed" in Acumatica, I cannot reopen the subcontract and need to start another one creating confusion in reporting. How are others handling this?
You might want to re-post on Community.Acumatica.com (click here) for this one.
Hi @bob-scott .. a little late, but just read this now.
We had the same problem; apparently you can just create a new CO and it'll open it again, but wasn't working for us initially.
Ended up making a standard cost code item to force the subcontract to remain open:
Then when the working line gets closed, it doesn't complete the subcontract and you can enter it again, uncheck closed on the line you want and make a new CO.
Leaving the forced line at .01 cent and then discounting it 100% so it doesn't mess with the #'s.
