Unsourcing Best Practices

Things to know about unsourcing:

  • Any product that you unsource before receiving the product will be marked as deleted from the purchase order or stock requisition
  • You cannot undo an unsourcing
  • Unsourcing a product with a work order removes the labor line items and source material from the work order

It is best practice to not unsource a product from your purchase order or stock requisition if the status is at Released. Unsourcing a product on a released order increases the chance of a receiving or work order issue. Only unsource a product when the receiving status is Completed (even if the product is not included the receiving) or the purchase order or stock requisition status is Open.
