In standard Dynamics NAV you cannot control changes in purchase orders, and therefore purchasers use post-it and Excel to remember outstanding queries. In Purchase Order Management an intermediary – a purchase handling journal – is introduced, in which all outstanding queries from the purchase order can be seen in one general overview – across all users. The journal connects Planning in NAV with Purchase Orders and Quotes.
