    • Article Type: General

    Problem Symptoms:
    A number of POLs have a status of Sent. Since these are continuations, it was expected to see status of "Waiting for Renewal". How to fix this?


    The continuous POLs will move from "Sent" to "Waiting for Renewal" when:


    1. The POL is activated or received. 

    -Continuous physical PO lines that are sent to the vendor have Waiting for Renewal status even if renewal is done manually but the renewal date has not yet arrived.  

    -Continuous electronic PO lines receive this status once they are activated and the user clicks Done in the task list. 

    2.  On a daily basis, the system checks for all PO lines whose status is Waiting for Renewal and whose renewal date is equal to the current date. For the purposes of this calculation, the renewal date refers to the renewal date (according to the PO line) minus the renewal notification period
