Retracting a Purchase Requisition


Line items from Purchase Requisitions can be retracted and moved to the Submit Requisitions page, where the employee who submitted them can edit and resubmit them for an approval. Employees will always have access to retract their own line items; Void Transactions permission can be given to retract others'.

Please Note: Line items cannot be retracted if the purchase order has been generated.
