Purchase Order No Ship Date

There is no ‘ship date’ field in the Purchase Order.

When submitting PO to vendor how do they know when the desired (RSD) requested ship date is? There is Promise date but that date is when we expect to receive the goods from the vendor and we don’t want to include that on the PO for fear of them using that as their ship date.

Coming from SAP and Oracle worlds, I’m surprised there is no ship date on a PO and am curious what the community is doing over come this issue.  Look forward to feedback.  Thanks.

HI @kmaharaj 

Most times the Promised on Date is what is used stating the vendor has promised it to be at the customer destination. You can have a promised date on a line item as well.

Hello @kmaharaj ,

Please vote up your idea, to improve methods of recording PO vendor acknowledgement including methods of recording shipping dates -- here:

In the meantime, consider adding a User-Defined Field to record a Vendor Ship Date to the PO:

Estimated Vendor Ship Date UDF added to PO Header

If different PO Lines will ship on different dates, a small customization will be needed to add a new date field to each line of the PO.
