Rejection reason in Sourcing Application

When a purchaser rejects items from Sourcing Cockpit there is no means to mention the reason behind rejecting the item(s).


This feature enables the purchaser to enter the reason for rejecting an item(s) of shopping cart or purchase requisition in the sourcing cockpit. Thus, this feature brings in transparency to the rejection process.

When the purchaser clicks on Reject button, a popup opens where in he/she can key in the Rejection Reason. The ID and the name of the purchaser, who rejects the item(s), as well as the time when the purchaser rejects the item(s), gets captured in the note for rejection reason by default.


To use the feature, you have to first activate the Business Function SRM_CONT_IMPR_2 and then activate the Customizing switch SOCO Rejection Reason(SRM_702_SOCO_REJECT) under SRM Server-> Sourcing->Activate/Deactivate SOCO Rejection Reason.
