Can I modify or remove the Quantity and Unit Cost Tolerance of a PO?
The goal of the PO Quantity and Unit Cost tolerances, is to only allow to items to POs within X% tolerance of what was originally approved. This serves as a basic cost control feature to prevent people from getting Requests approved for a given Quantity or Unit Cost, but then generate POs for much higher amounts than originally approved.
The default tolerances for new companies is 10% for both Quantity, as well as Unit Cost. To modify these tolerances levels, please follow these steps:
- Head over to your account Settings (top right gear icon - ⚙️)
- Locate the Advanced Settings subtab.
- Scroll down to the Purchase Orders section of the screen, and locate the Unit Cost Tolerance Control and Quantity Tolerance Control fields. Enter the desired percentage, and click on Save.
