In your Procurement process, business users create Purchase Requisitions for themselves and also create Purchase Requisitions on behalf of other business users. Purchase Orders are created as follow on documents and the users can manage the confirmation and goods reciept of their documents via the 'Confirm Receipt of Goods' APP. In a situation where a user leaves the company with several open documents still in process, you would like to reassign these documents to another user.

Goods receipt confirmations can only be posted in the APP by the user they belong to, if that user has left the company the Goods Receipt Confirmation can be posted via 'Post Goods Receipt' (MIGO).
