Re: Default Automatic Print of Purchase Orders for PO Workflow Users


Dear AMS Users,

As part of Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration’s (EASI) modernization initiative, we are updating AMS printing to support more convenient paperless processes for divisions and departments that currently use the PO workflow.

Currently, when you create or modify a Purchase Order (PO) in SAP, you will automatically receive a printed copy from your network printer as well as a PDF copy via email. Through comprehensive consultations across all three campuses, EASI has identified that the automatic printed copy is no longer required since users can print POs from the PDF version.

As a result, EASI plans to target retirement of this automatic default print setting by the end of 2022. If we haven’t reached out to your area and you would like to provide us with feedback on this change, please contact our project manager, Farah Ally, by November 1, 2022.

Please note that this change does not affect University of Toronto Scarborough staff, since they do not use this PO workflow. They will continue to use current processes to save, print, and email POs.

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback on this project and your support for this initiative.
