Re: Retirement of Automatic Print for PO Workflow Users


Dear AMS Users,

As a follow up to an email sent in late October, Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration (EASI) is moving ahead with the retirement of the automatic default print setting for AMS Purchase Orders (PO) effective Tuesday, December 13, 2022. This move aligns with a larger effort that is part of EASI’s modernization initiative.

From extensive stakeholder consultations, EASI has identified that the automatic printed copy is no longer required since users can print POs from the PDF version:

  • Currently, when you create or modify a PO in SAP, you automatically receive a printed copy from your network printer as well as a PDF copy via email.
  • For more information on how to track and display your purchase orders, view this video.
  • For more information on how to manually print a PO from AMS, view this video.

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.
