Last updated on JUNE 15, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version to [Release 11.5]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The PO PDF notification to suppliers can be sent as part of PO Approval Workflow part of PO
approval process as well as through PO Summary --> Tools --> Communicate --> Email.

When the email option is selected via the Tools --> Communicate on the PO Summary form
the package procedure “PO_COMMUNICATION_PVT. Start_Email_WF_Process” is executed.
This call launches the PO Approval Workflow (POAPPRV) / Email PO PDF activity.
Hard coded in the procedure is the item type 'POAPPRV'.

You would like to know if there is a feasibility to launch the custom PO approval workflow item
type through Tools --> Communicate just like it is possible through the PO Document Approval
process (by setting up custom item type in the document types screen).
