To configure acquisition methods, you must have one of the following roles:
- Acquisitions Administrator
- General System Administrator
You can enable or disable acquisition methods and configure the default acquisition method that appears in the Acquisition method drop-down list when creating new PO lines. (For more information, see Manually Creating a PO Line). For information on these methods, see the table Acquisition Methods in Manually Creating a PO Line.
These actions are performed on the Acquisition Method code table (Acquisitions > Acquisitions Configuration > Configuration Menu > Purchase Orders > Acquisition Method).
When configuring a default acquisition method, existing PO lines are not affected by this configuration. For more information on code tables, see Code Tables.
