We have some outside processing vendors who we issue a blank PO for the material and will receive it back but we might not know the costs until several weeks later. Yes, it would be great for them to return the material with costs but it often never happens (only talking $40-50 on average).
I have not been able to find a way to show these parts as received for our production team without actually receiving them in with a zero costs. When we do this then we have to go back and unreceive, open up PO and add the costs then receive again.
Anybody have any thoughts on how to show these as received and then be able to adjust costs and actually receive? I was thinking about a UDF check mark on the PO release but wasn’t sure if anybody else had tackled this issue. Also - the production team views all this information per project in a dashboard so a UDF field shouldn’t be a big issue.
