    Deleting POs


    This page describes how to delete POs.  For a list of links to pages with instructions for purchasing in Alma including creating PO lines, renewals, working with vendors, etc., see Purchasing. For information on the overall purchasing workflow see Purchasing Workflow. For an overview of working with acquisitions in Alma, including links to relevant sections such as Infrastructure, Invoicing, Configuration, etc., see Introduction to Acquisitions.

    To delete POs, you must have one of the following roles:
    • Purchase Operator Extended
    • Purchasing Manager
    You can delete a PO when it does not contain PO lines that are received, activated, or linked to an invoice. When deleting a PO, all of its associated PO lines are also deleted. To delete PO lines, see Deleting PO Lines.
    Deleting a PO creates a report when the job is completed, as is the case for all other jobs (see Viewing Completed Jobs).
    To delete a PO:
    1. On the Delete PO page (Acquisitions > Purchase Order > Delete PO) and select a PO from the quick pick list. You can also delete POs when reviewing (Packaging PO Lines into a PO) or approving (Approving and Sending POs) them.
    2. Select Delete PO and select Confirm in the confirmation dialog box to delete the PO. A confirmation message appears on the Delete PO page, indicating the status of the PO.

    Select Go to Monitor Jobs to view the progress of the delete request (see Viewing Running Jobs).
