How to Set Up a Purchase Requisition Module

Purchase Requisition is a document generated by an employee to request that the company orders certain items and to advise on the quantity and timeframe for the order. Please read this article to learn more about the Purchase Requisition and how to use it in Precoro.


Set Up a Purchase Requisition Module in the Basic Settings

1. Open the Configuration → Basic Settings → Documents Setup → Purchase Requisitions

2. Activate the module by turning the switch On then press Save.

3. Make sure that all necessary features are active:

  • Empty Rows for Items allows users to add items to the Requisition in a free form.

When this feature is active, users have three options when adding items: they can pick an item from the Catalog, add all the necessary information manually, or import items in bulk. 

Disabling this feature allows users to only add items from the Catalog. Therefore, you do not need to add items manually as the Add Empty Row button will not be displayed in the document: 

You can take advantage of using Empty Rows in the following cases:

  1. You are confident that users will select the appropriate Chart of Accounts and will follow the Accounting rules.
  2. There will be no errors or misspellings in denominations.

If you wish to receive clear and formalized information on the items you are buying or assist your users with selecting a Chart of Accounts, it is best you use the Catalog items. To do so, turn off the Empty Rows for Items and add your Catalog.

Please read this article to learn more about how to create a Catalog.

  • Display prices — allows users to see the price and Total Sum of the document

Disabling this feature allows you to hide the items price and the Total Sum from other users:

  • Enable SKU — allows users to see the SKU of the item in the row.

Disabling this feature removes the SKU information from the item’s row so your users will not see it.

Set Relevant User Roles

1. Open the Configuration page and go to the User Management tab.

2. Select the users who will work with the PR module and provide them with corresponding roles. To do that, press the Edit Action and set the user’s rights in the Roles tab.

3. To save the changes, press the Update button below.

The “View only” role grants document viewing without editing or approving rights. 

The “Create” role provides access to document creation and editing.

The “Approve” role allows approving the documents created by other users.

More information on User Roles in Precoro you can find in the corresponding article.

Create the Approval Workflow
