9.7.0 Release Features and Functionality (July 2019)

BuyerQuest 9.7.0, released July 31, 2019, includes a number of new and improved features.

Platform Module

Approval Rules for Budgets 

Request Approval Rule functionality is extended to Budgets, where evaluation logic is used to determine if a line item in a Request is within budget. When the order of an item results in a Budget being exceeded, a warning will be included in emails to the Approver and in messages displayed in the Request to inform Approvers of the over-budget line items.

Enable Internal Users to Upload Catalogs 

Properly permissioned users and administrators at buying organizations may upload catalogs from their own accounts on behalf of suppliers. All the catalog upload functionality available to suppliers has been extended to internal users. Catalog upload capability will also be available on the Catalog Details page for both internal users and suppliers. 

The ability for a buying organization's internal users to upload supplier catalog can result in more timely and effective product updates and enables close collaboration between suppliers and their buyers. 

Example: Upload Catalog for Internal Users from Global Catalogs Grid
