Voiding a Purchase Order


Line items from Purchase Orders can be voided if a user has generated and placed the purchase order. For example, if the item is unavailable it may need to be voided. Employees will always have access to void their own line items; extra permission can be given to void others'.

Please Note: Line items cannot be voided if they've already been invoiced.
