Retracting a Purchase Order


Line items from Purchase Orders can be retracted and moved to the Generate Purchase Orders page, where the employee who submitted them can edit and resubmit them to the vendor. Employees will always have access to retract their own line items; Void Transactions permissions can be given to retract others'.

Please Note: Line items cannot be retracted if the purchase order has been placed via PrintFaxEmail, and Punchout.
