Searching for a Receipt
Receiving Quick Reference Guide
A quantity receipt is an indication that goods have been received, returned, or cancelled. In most cases, there will be a 1:1
relationship between a purchase order and a receipt. This is the case when all of the goods requested are received in an order.
Occasionally you may have multiple receipts for a single purchase order when some of the items requested are on backorder or
come later.
Click the Document Search tab and enter in the Purchase Order for the items that have been received.
Open the purchase order by clicking the PO number.
From the Available Actions drop-down box, select Create Quantity Receipt and then click GO .
The receipt will be automatically populated with the PO information, including the remaining number of items to be received.
The default Action is Received, which indicates the item was received. Other available options are Returned or Cancelled.
Add any additional information required by the organization, such as Packing Slip Number, Carrier, Tracking Information,
attachments or notes.
7. Update the receipt date to be the date the goods were actually received.
8. Click Show Receipt Details to view line level details. Make any necessary updates.
9. Click Save Updates to save changes or Complete when the receipt is finished. By clicking save first, the user would be
notified if there are any errors prior to completing the receipt.
a. Once a receipt has been submitted and completed, no changes can be made to the original receipt.
The Receipt Number displays on the screen. Once a receipt is created, the receipt date is saved, which indicates the date the goods
were actually received and the receipt complete date, which indicates when the receipt was entered in the system.

Invoice Approvals
• All invoices entered against a standing order will route to the Financial
Manager for approval. If the invoice is the final invoice – Accounts
Payable must be notified to close the PO (2-way match)
• If a receiver has not been entered for goods/services after 10 days, the
invoice will route to the financial manager as a match exception. The
Financial Manager will enter the receiver and the invoice will automatically
• If the invoice has other match exception issues (outside of tolerance,
additional charges, etc.) the Financial Manager will need to approve it. The
Financial Manager can determine what the match exception issue is by
clicking on the Invoice  Match tab.
• If it is not the final invoice, the check mark must be removed from the
“Force Match” box. This will allow the PO to remain open so that future
invoices can be entered against the PO. If the “Force Match” box remains
checked, the PO will close after the invoice is processed.
