We’ve had a few questions about the overhauled Status & Inquiry Utilities in the 2020 release of SpendMap. Specifically, what’s the best/fastest way to get to a PO or other document if you already know the document number?
Instead of using the new Search Criteria at the top of the screen, if you already know the PO number, try using the [Quick Search by Document Number] button at the bottom of the screen, to jump right to that Purchase Order…
If you’re using v14.50 of the Free Version of SpendMap, you can now upgrade to the 2020 release (Version 14.84) to get more than 30 new features and capabilities, in addition to various bug fixes and performance improvements.
You can check your current version number using the menu Help > About, in SpendMap.
About the Upgrade Utility
The upgrade utility will bring forward all your data, history, settings, etc., so you will not lose any of your work in SpendMap.
Just log into your current v14.50 SpendMap system and select the menu Help > Check For Updates. This will download a patch to your v14.50 system – you will still be at v14.50 at this point but you will now see a red hyperlink at the bottom of the Main Menu of SpendMap. Just click that hyperlink to see full upgrade instructions before actually applying the upgrade to v14.84.
By default, the Free Version of SpendMap will automatically assign incrementing PO numbers to each new Purchase Order that you enter in the system. You can set up your “Next PO number” during the Setup Wizard that runs automatically when you log into your Live System for the first time.
But if you prefer to enter your PO numbers manually for each new order, just select the following menu in SpendMap…
– PURCHASING > Setup system > Incrementing document number sets > POs
Then modify PO Number Set A as follows. From that point on, whenever you enter a new PO in your PO Work Area, the PO Number will be blank and you can enter it manually for each order.
