One common issue when the Requisition is returned to the user is because the funding string is not valid. WISER confirmed this as well. Solution: Update the funding string to contain valid funding information and resubmit the Requisition into the approval workflow.
Another common issue when the Requisition is returned is because a catalog supplier was used as a non-catalog supplier, which generates an “Auto Return for Missing Non-Catalog Supplier Email.” Solution: Add the Supplier Email on the Summary tab, General section, and resubmit the Requisition into the approval workflow.
ShopUW+ identifies a Requisition as non-catalog if a form is used to create the order, even if the supplier is a catalog supplier. Solution: it is recommended that users use the supplier punch-out site through ShopUW+ to create orders for catalog suppliers. If the supplier punch-out process is not used for a catalog supplier, the Requisition will require a Supplier Email address and will be returned to the user if an email address is not entered on the Requisition.
