1917199 - Automatically Populate Ship-To Location in the Purchase Order Line Items.


You are creating a purchase order. You want the system to automatically determine the Ship-To Location while entering each line item in the order.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Request and Orders work center.
  2. Navigate to Common Tasks view and choose the option New Purchase Order.
  3. In the New Purchase Order screen choose the View All button, enter the relevant mandatory fields in the General tab and navigate to the Items tab.
  4. Choose the button Add Row and enter the product details.
  5. You can see that the Ship-To Location ID is not being populated automatically by the system.


This is expected system behavior. Currently in Business ByDesign there is no feature available to default Ship-To location in purchase order line item.


The system is working as designed.
