The ctcLink purchasing receiving business process enables you to receive, inspect, return, and put away received goods. You can receive inventory or non-inventory items, with or without associated purchase orders.  Direct ship orders are not eligible for receiving, because they are normally sent directly to a customer site and received there.

This selection requires a live count of the items prior to receipt in the system. If selected, the copy function does not transfer order quantities to the receipt. You will need to manually enter all receipt quantities.
      • Order Qty (order quantity) – Select this option to automatically make the received quantity the purchase order quantity. This selection makes the receipt quantity the purchase order quantity regardless of any prior receipt quantity.
