Our customer would like the ability to indicate a PO is critical and be notified when the PO Receipt is entered.  Has anyone done this?  Does anyone have any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

Hello, this can be done through business event.
1, add a customization field or User defined field to identify this is a critical PO. could use a checkbox.
2, write an Generic inquiry to search POs with critical=true out.
3, Trigger an email notification when POs with Critical=true be receiving.

We do this a similar way, however we don’t use attributes. We have a GI that pulls all the stock & non-stock items into it. We then have filters set up for various people/departments. For example, if engineering wants to know when item # PROTOTYPE3 arrives then they configure the filter title engineering and add a condition OR inventoryid=PROTOTYPE3. We have business events set for each group with a notification template just for that group and apply the appropriate shared filter.

Hello,

     Coincidently, I meet this exactly request by users. 
I just pointed out a direction in the above method,  please allow me to do a little modification to the second step.

Actually, it is not monitorring on the POs.  We are monitorring on the creation of POreceipts.

Like below:
 

 

And a business events is triggerred by the “record inserted”, which means new receipt saved.

 

I tested, it is working.
