Varying freight on Purchase Receipt
With COVID-19 we have an increased instance of Purchase Orders being split in to multiple deliveries. In some instances, Vendors have decided to prorate the total PO freight per partial delivery. This creates an issue for us as we are unaware of the split at the time of Purchase Receipt creation - only when we get the Bill do we know. Our AP team can't amend the Ext Cost on the Purchase Receipt thanks to 2019.1 update so they have to go to the Purchaser and ask them to delete the Purchase Receipt, edit the PO and split the freight lines and then recreate the Purchase Receipt. This is a big waste of time. Is there an easier way?
What if you delay receiving the freight line until you get the AP Bill? What I don't like about that is that, realistically, you'd have to give an AP Clerk access to create transactions in the Purchase Receipt screen for the freight lines.
We can't do that due to seperation of concerns - receipts are upon delivery by Purchaser, Bills are by AP Clerk. AP Clerk cannot modify receipts, only release them.
Anyway we had to go with the Purchaser ammending the PO and spliting the freight lines.
Hopefully this fix in Acumatica 2020 R2 helps solve the problem eventually:
