Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Go to the Purchase Orders view
  3. Select the relevant Purchase Order
  4. Select New PO Acknowledgement button
  5. Enter the Acknowledged Delivery Date / Service Period
  6. System did not create any deviation task


In general if the price, delivery date, or quantity of the PO acknowledgment is different to those in the purchase order, the system creates a task. However in Business Configuration work center there is an activity called Automatic Accept Deviation on Purchase Order Acknowledgement. Here you have defined Deviation Criteria for Delivery Date Variance. [Variance Higher Than (Days) and Variance Lower Than (Days)]. Based on the variances you have maintained, system accepts the deviation directly and does not create any deviation tasks.


You have maintained the Deviation Criteria for Delivery Date Variance and hence no deviation task created. This is an expected behavior.
