Enforcing Receiving of Goods
Currently, we're decentralized where our front line staff make their own PO requsitions, and receive their own goods. Over time, staff aren't really receiving everything - and falls to Finance to frankly nag people. Instead, I'd like PE to do that, and send out emails after say  or  days, saying there are approved PO's - for which all the goods haven't been received yet.
I could also see a future organization, where we centralize aspect of the purchasing and receiving function (thanks to PE) and would like option to route such auto messages to a different person, and not necessarily the originator of the PO.
This is a good idea. Perhaps making it mandatory to receive items before an invoice can be approved would be a good feature. We are having this issue to the point where invoices have been paid and we do not know if stuff has actually been received because teh responsible person has not got round to receiving the items yet.
Great idea and yes goods should be marked received before invoice can be paid (with the expception of "pro-forma" invoices).
