Is there a way to override B2B during Purchase Order submittal?  Vendor is enabled for CMK communication for the Purchasing Supplier Site.  Is there functionality on the Purchase Order form to not submit the order via EDI and to use one of the other communication methods from the PO UI screen?


If a vendor is setup to communicate PO documents via EDI, sometimes the buyer needs to submit it outside of EDI, like by fax or email. Setting up another vendor site for this is not an option and having the buyer turn off CMK is not an option as they may not have access to suppliers or another buyer could be creating a PO to the vendor and would need to send a PO EDI. It needs to be flexible like it is with printing, faxing, and email.

The reason an override delivery method via email or fax would be needed is when EDI PO's need to be received by a specific time because the vendor delivers the next day.
If they go past the cutoff, they can't send it via EDI and it requires email or fax.  If sending it via EDI and sending it by email, it could cause duplication of the order.

The other reason for wanting this functionality would be for items that are regularly ordered to the vendor and are description or a 1 time buy. Some vendors can't handle that via EDI.
