By LuciaC-Oracle on Feb 10, 2014
Did you see these new additions to Doc ID 1591198.1, section Enhancements introduced in Patch 17525552:R12.PRC_PF.B? Along with the rest of the enhancements the following information has been appended:
| Functional Area
|| Enhanced Behavior
|Send Pre – Qualification Questionnaire||When action ‘Send Pre – Qualification Questionnaire’ is taken, the notification that is sent to the supplier will be ‘Action Required: Please fill out the Supplier pre – qualification questionnaire’.||In the new process an ‘Invitation to Register’ should be first sent to the supplier, followed then by an ‘Action Required: Please fill out the Supplier pre – qualification questionnaire’ notification. This will be less confusing for the supplier to first see the invitation and then the notification for questionnaire.|
|Supplier Registration Actions||Buyer uses Notify button to ask any information from the supplier.|| The ‘Notify’ button has been converted to ‘Supplier to Provide Details’ action in actions dropdown in Supplier request review page.
During registration process, there won’t be any action like 'Supplier to Provide details’; instead there is 'Send Invitation to Supplier’. But after registration is complete, during the approval process, the buyer/approver will have the action 'Supplier to Provide details'.
|New Supplier Registration Process||After the internal user clicks on ‘Register New Supplier’ button, the user will be guided to ‘Suppliers: Register New Supplier’ page. This page presently has only two buttons – ‘Cancel’ and ‘Save & Continue’.||
As per the new process this page will have three buttons – ‘Cancel’, ‘Send Invitation to Supplier’ and ‘Save Continue’. The buttons are described below:
|Entering Profile Attributes||Currently all UDAs display in the same page, then it requires the buyer to also enter mandatory UDAs specific to supplier.||
When the requester takes action 'Send Invitation to Supplier' on request review page (not on the request creation page), all the mandatory UDAs to be entered by the internal user will be validated and error messages will be displayed. The request is sent to the supplier only if all the mandatory UDAs are entered by the internal user. To achieve this, UDA pages are segregated to 'attributes to be entered by supplier' and 'attributes to be entered by buyer'.
