What is a Purchase Requisition Custom Report?

Purchase Requisition Custom Report
allows you to generate any data set describing all PRs you have access to in Precoro. After running, the PR Custom Report can be downloaded in XLSX format. Thus, you can gather, filter, process, analyze, and use any information about your company’s Purchase Requisitions. 

Please note: Purchase Requisition type of Custom Reports is available only for users with active Report and Purchase Requisition roles.

Generally, there are two ways you can build a Purchase Requisition Custom Report:

  1. By documents, using only General data
  2. By items, using Items (and other) data.

Let’s consider examples of both types and define their features and advantages.

You can filter the Purchase Requisition Custom Report by Items and Documents Custom Fields.

Please make sure you have activated Items Custom Fields for the Purchase Requisitions to see them in the Reports filters.

Thus, you decided to create a report, which would show you how many products from the food and drinks categories were ordered per office during the last month. 

Such type of PR Custom Report should be built using Items data. At this point, after running the report, we will have a dataset of all PR items that fulfill set filters.
