Product overview

Help and User Guide maintained for WAP version 200.0.0 and upwards.


This WAP Requisition Help and User Guide will take you through the features and settings for the Sicon WAP Requisition Module.  This module is designed to allow users of the WAP system to create, submit and approve Purchase Requisitions, enabling a PO to be raised and posted to the Purchase Order Processing module within Sage 200.  Goods can then be received via the WAP Requisition module which will then update the values on the Sage Purchase Order.

If used in conjunction with the WAP Invoice Approval module with auto approval functionality (in accordance with variance checking), PO Invoices can be linked in Sage 200 against a PO and not require approval, thus negating the need for a matching invoice to be sent for approval.


1. Requisition Enable Configuration

For the Requisition module to be available the enable module must have the Requisition module ticked.  Once this is configured, Requisition options will then be visible within the system.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 1 - Section 1

For further information on licencing, please speak with your Business Partner in the first instance.


2. New Requisitions

From the side Requisitions menu, select New Requisition.  N.B. Options on this screen will be dependent on the functionality and options enabled or disabled within the System Settings.

Sicon Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 3 - Section 2

Company:  the user’s default company will be selected here and greyed out if the user only has access to one.  If the user has access to multiple companies, they can select a different company here.

Supplier:  select the correct supplier from the drop down list either by typing the supplier name or code.  All suppliers will be pulled through from Sage; if a supplier is on hold in Purchase Ledger, it will appear in the list with an On Hold status, but will be unavailable to use for the requisition.  The blue information dot can be clicked to provide more information on the supplier such as address, contact and payment information.  If required, the supplier list may be restricted to show only Approved Suppliers as defined in Sage 200. See Section 13 – Approved Suppliers.

Supplier Ref:  this will be automatically populated with the supplier reference from Sage 200 once a supplier has been selected.

Document Date:  this will be automatically populated with the current date but can be overridden as needed.  By default, it is not possible to enter a requisition in the past although this can be allowed if needed.  This is the date that is used for budget checking purposes so if a spend is to hit a future month’s budget, this date can be moved to a future date.

Delivery Date:  this can either be automatically populated to match the document date or can be left empty to force the users to pick a delivery date.  This is a mandatory field and will be used to generate Goods Received notification reminders if configured.  Individual delivery dates can also be set per stock item or free text line if required.

Urgent:  if the user marks a requisition as urgent they will need to enter a reason for the urgency in the Urgent pop up box.  Once the requisition is then submitted an email will be sent instantly to approvers advising them there is a requisition awaiting approval.

Call Off:  call off orders can be created for free text lines only; this will switch the value and quantity fields on the entry screen to enable calling off orders by value rather than quantities. See Section 3 – Call Off Orders.

Save Only:  clicking this will allow the user to save the requisition before submitting; i.e. if extra lines need to be added before the requisition is submitted.

Save & Submit:  this will send the requisition for approval.

Close:  this will close the screen without saving any changes.

Print Summary:  this option is not possible until a requisition has been fully approved; it will open a pop up that would allow the PO to be emailed to the supplier.

Copy Order:  this will allow the user to select a previously approved order to copy and create a new requisition for approval. See Section 4.4 Copy Existing Requisition.

Show Related Project Requisitions:  this option is not possible until the requisition has been fully approved; it will open a pop up showing the project requisition the requisition was created from.

Show Goods Received:  this option is not possible until the requisition is approved and has had goods received against; a pop up will open showing goods received.

Reset Lines:  this option will reset the approval route for all lines back to the beginning of the approval route.


2.1. Add a Free Text Line

Select Add a Free Text Line and complete as required.  N.B. certain fields or boxes may not be visible as below, depending on the System Setup.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 4 - Section 2.1

Populate from catalogue Item: Only relevant where the Sicon Distribution module, Catalogue Item is also in use.  If enabled, click on ‘Populate from catalogue Item’ to bring up the catalogue for the supplier associated with the order, highlight the item and select ‘Add’ to pick the required item. See Distribution HUG for more information on this feature.

Item Details:  free text field to enter the description of the item required.  There is a maximum of 65,500 characters in this field.

Quantity:  free text box, enter the quantity required.

Unit Price (£):  free text box, enter the price per unit as required.  The symbol in the bracket field is pulled through from the currency set against the supplier in Sage PL.

Buying Price Unit:  free text field to enter further details of the item, e.g. box of 12 or pack of 6.  This field can be configured to show on the PO layout to the supplier, or hidden from view when entering requisitions if not needed.

Delivery Date:  this will pull through the delivery date as selected on the front page but can be overridden as needed.  This is particularly useful if expecting staggered delivery or part invoicing an order.

Tax Code:  this can be configured to pull through the tax rate configured against the supplier in the PL or the standard tax rate against the Sage Company in Sage Connections.  This field can be hidden from view if required.

Discount Percent:  if applicable, enter a discount percentage to apply to this line.  This field can be hidden from view if required.

Confirmation Method:  this will pull through from the standard configuration in Sage but can be overridden per line if required.  This field can also be hidden if needed.

Save:  click to save the order line to the requisition.  Once saved, the free text line details box remains on the screen ready to add further lines if required.  By default, the previously selected project or nominal code will remain but can be changed.

Close:  when no further lines are required on the order, click Close to return to the requisition header page.

Project Tab

This tab will only appear if Sicon Projects, Sage Project Accounting or WAP Projects has been configured as the Costing Module.  If the Requisition is linked to a Project, select the correct Project and Project Header/Project Item from the drop down menus.  Note; if activities are being used in the Project structure, these will be available for selection and the Tree option should be used to ensure the correct Project Activity and Header are chosen.

If a user has ‘Access all Projects/Projects’ ticked on their User profile, all live Projects will appear in the dropdown list.  Alternatively, users can be given access to specific Projects and Project Headers/Project Items.

Nominal Tab

If a Project and Project Header/Project Item have been selected, the nominal code will be automatically populated based on the selection and by default, users will not be able to change this code.  This can be configured if required.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 5 - Section 2.1

If a costing module is not integrated with WAP, the user will need to select a nominal code for this line item.  Nominal codes can be searched for either by typing an account number or name.  Users can be given permission on their User profile to ‘Access All Nominal Codes’ but it is advised to restrict user nominal access so they see a limited list of codes.

Approval Tab

The approval tab will display the route configured for this line item.  Users will not be able to make any changes to the route, unless they have the user type permission to ‘Create ad-hoc Approval Routes’ – this is recommended for Finance or Admin users only.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 6 - Section 2.1


2.2. Add a Stock Item Line

Select ‘Add a Stock Item’ and complete as required.  Stock items will pull through from Sage – the nominal code set against the stock item will be used.  If using Sicon Projects and the stock item has a default POP project header set, this will be populated and the nominal code set against this project header used.  If no project header has been set against the stock, the default PO project header will be used, alternatively if this is not set, the user will need to select a project header from the list allocated to them.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Section 2.2 Update Image 1

Filter Items By Supplier: this can be ticked to only show products linked to the supplier selected; untick this to show all stock items set up in Sage.  This setting can be hidden if required and either defaulted to be on (to only show stock items linked to that supplier) or off (to show all stock items).  Within requisition system settings it is also possible to force users to only use products linked to the supplier selected.

Product Group:  by default all product groups will be selected but stock items can be filtered by a product group to show only stock items within that product group.

Stock Item:  select either by typing a stock name or item code.  Supplier part and free stock numbers will be visible on stock item selection.

Warehouse:  select the correct warehouse for the stock item.  If required, users can be restricted as to the warehouses they can see.

Image:  if an image has been added onto the stock item in Sage, this will be visible within WAP.  To add an image against the stock item, amend the item in Sage, click on the Sicon tab and the ‘Stock Item Images’ and add an image.  Multiple images can be added against an item but only the Default image will show in WAP.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Section 2.2 Update Image 2

Amend Line Description:  users are able to tick this to amend the line description on the stock item; this would then change the description on the PO to the supplier but would not update the stock item in Sage.

Confirmation Method:  the confirmation will be set as confirm with goods received and can be hidden if preferred.

Quantity:  selection box, enter the quantity required.

Buying Unit:  select the correct buying unit from the drop down menu, as configured from Sage.

Buying Price Unit:  choose the correct buying price unit from the drop down menu, as configured in Sage 200.

Unit Price (£):  the price will be pulled through from Sage but can be overridden if needed.  The symbol in the bracket field is pulled through from the currency set against the supplier in Sage PL.

Tax Code:  this will pull through the tax code configured against the stock item in Sage but the users can override.  This field can be hidden from view if required.

Delivery Date:  this will pull through the delivery date as selected on the front page but can be overridden as needed.  This is particularly useful if expecting staggered delivery or part invoicing an order.

Project Tab

This tab will only appear if Sicon Projects, Sage Project Accounting or WAP Projects has been configured as the Costing Module.  If the Requisition is linked to a Project, select the correct Project and Project Header/Project Item from the drop down menus.  Note; if activities are being used in the Project structure, these will be available for selection and the Tree option should be used to ensure the correct Project Activity and Header are chosen.

If a user has ‘Access all Projects’ ticked on their User profile, all live Projects will appear in the dropdown list.  Alternatively, users can be given access to specific Projects and Project Headers/Project Items.

Nominal Tab

If a Project and Project Header/Project Item have been selected, the nominal code will be automatically populated based on the selection and by default, users will not be able to change this code.  This can be configured if required.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Section 2.2 Update Image 3

If a costing module is not integrated with WAP, the nominal will be pulled through from the default set against the stock item.  If configured as such, users can search for a nominal code either by typing an account number or name.  Users can be given permission on their User profile to ‘Access All Nominal Codes’ but it is advised to restrict user nominal access so they see a limited list of codes.

Stock Movement

This tab will show the stock movements against the stock item and Warehouse selected, if there is free stock in that warehouse.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Section 2.2 Update Image 4

Approval Tab

The approval tab will display the route configured for this line item.  Users will not be able to make any changes to the route, unless they have the user type permission to ‘Create ad-hoc Approval Routes’ – this is recommended for Finance or Admin users only.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Section 2.2 Update Image 5


2.3. Add a Comment Line

Any additional comments that need to appear on the requisition as a line item can be added here and can be marked to show on supplier documentation.  By default, the comment will not be set to appear on supplier documents.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 11 - Section 2.3


2.4. Add a Charge Line

When adding a charge line the charge code will be pulled through from Sage 200, as configured in POP – POP Maintenance – Additional Charges).  Choose the appropriate charge code and the corresponding name, value and nominal code will auto populate.  Values can be overwritten if different to the default.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 12 - Section 2.4


2.5. Update Nominals

This screen can be used to update nominal codes on multiple lines at a time; a nominal code can be chosen from the top drop down box, tick to select the appropriate lines and then click to replace nominal codes on the selected lines.

Access to this option is a User Type permission and would usually only be given to Admin or Finance users.  It can be beneficial if there is a requisition with many lines that need the nominal code changing, rather than editing each line individually.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 13 - Section 2.5


2.6. Line Values Tab

This tab will show a breakdown of the lines on the order with the quantities, unit prices, discount percentage, tax rate and net value.  These lines can be edited or deleted, depending on Approval status and User Type permissions.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 14 - Section 2.6


2.7. Line Quantities Tab

This tab will show a breakdown of the order lines with the Buying Unit description and the quantities that have been ordered, received and invoiced with individual line delivery dates.  Lines can be edited or deleted, depending on Approval status and User Type permissions.  As the requisition has goods received against or invoiced quantities, these figures will be automatically updated.  If Goods Received Note attachments have been added when receiving the goods in WAP, clicking on the Received Quantity hyperlink will show receipt information and a thumbnail of the attachment.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 15 - Section 2.7


2.8. Authorisation Tab

Once the requisition has been submitted, the lines will be updated to show who is needed to approve the line and the status of the document.  The document will not be fully approved until all lines have been approved.  Clicking Restart will cause the line to be sent back to the beginning of the approval route.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 16 - Section 2.8


2.9. Budget Tab

If budget checking has been enabled, budget information will be populated on the budget tab on the item line.  Double click on the budget line to see the drilldown.  If a line is over budget, the requisition and the line will be flagged as over budget.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 17 - Section 2.9


2.10. Project Tab

If Sicon Projects, Sage Project Accounting or WAP Projects are enabled and the line is linked to a Project, the details will be shown on this tab.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 18 - Section 2.10


2.11. Delivery and Invoicing Tab

This tab will show information on supplier, delivery and invoice addresses, order discount percentages, Sage analysis codes, and if required database Spare Fields.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 19 - Section 2.11

Supplier Address:  this will be automatically populated from the Sage PL Account once a supplier has been selected.

Supplier Contact:  supplier contact information will be automatically populated from the Sage PL Account default contact.  This will usually be a finance contact but Supplier Roles can be created in Sage to allocate a purchasing contact to a supplier which WAP will then use.  To create a Purchase contact, create a role title ‘SendPLOrderTo’ (Accounting System Manager – Settings – Customer and Supplier Roles) and then when creating a contact against the supplier account, link the contact through to this role.  WAP will then pick up this contact to use for delivery details.

Deliver To:  this address must be populated before lines can be added to a requisition and a default delivery address is linked through to a user on their WAP User profile.  Delivery and invoice addresses are added in via System Settings – Delivery Addresses.  If a user has permission to do so they may be able to change the delivery address.  Alternative addresses such as Supplier/Customer/Project or Free Text Addresses can be made available within WAP System Settings if needed.  The option to select a Warehouse only relates to purchases of stock items and the warehouse these items would be booked into when they are received in.

Invoice To:  this address must be populated before lines can be added to a requisition and a default invoice address is linked through to a user on their WAP User profile.  Delivery and invoice addresses are added in via System Settings – Delivery Addresses.  If a user has permission to do so, they may be able to change the invoice address but this is not usually allowed.

Order Discount/Surcharge (£):  an overall discount percentage can be applied to all lines on the requisition if required; enter the order discount percent and the discount value will be calculated and applied automatically.  Users will not be able to change the discount value.

Analysis Codes:  analysis codes set up and configured in Sage POP – POP Maintenance – Maintain Analysis Codes, will be drawn through to select.

Spare Fields:  if another application is using Spare Fields in the database for additional analysis options, these can be configured in WAP system settings to appear on requisition order entry.  Any values entered will then post through to Sage (but will not be visible to the end user as this is linked to the database only).


2.12. Justification Tab

This tab is used to provide a narrative and add file attachments to clarify or support why the items have been requested.  These documents are for internal use only; they will not post through to Sage or appear to the Supplier.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 20 - Section 2.12

Requested By:  this is automatically populated with the user’s name but can be changed to another user, if the permissions have been configured (User Setup – Users – Account Options).  If approval routes are based on Requesting User, the system will pick up the user from here.

Business Unit:  the ‘Requested For’ box is a free text field that can be completed as required and the ‘Department’ will be a drop down box for the user to select the business unit.  The user’s default business unit will be populated initially but if the user has access to other business units they will appear to be chosen.

Notes:  free text notes can be added here, once added a yellow post-it note icon will appear in the Flag column on the requisition summary grid tables and approval grid page.

Link:  if configured, a hyperlink (e.g. https://www.sicon.co.uk) can be added here; once a hyperlink has been added, a globe icon will appear in the Flag column on the requisition summary grid tables and approval grid page.  If a user clicks on this icon a new window will open through to hyperlink.

Attachments:  supporting documents can be uploaded and attached to the requisition using the drop files or browse option; if one document is attached, a single paperclip will appear in the Flag column on the requisition summary grid tables and approval grid page, if further documents are attached, two paperclips will show.

Order Justification:  justification bands can be configured (System Settings – Requisitions) so based on the value of the requisition a specific number of quotes need to be attached; e.g. up to £5,000 must have 1 quote, up to £10,000 must have two quotes and over £10,000 would require three quotes.  If configured, this will show the user how many attachments are required and allow for quotes to be added.  It is not currently possible to restrict this feature per nominal code or supplier.


2.13. Approval History Tab

This tab will start to be populated once the requisition has been submitted and starts through the approval process.  Only lines that require approval will be displayed, i.e. comment lines will not show.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 21 - Section 2.13

Filter by Item:  by default all requisition lines will show, use this drop down box to filter to view history of one specific line.

Urgent Reason:  if the user ticked the option to mark the requisition as urgent, the reason given will be displayed here.


2.14. Audit History Tab

If configured, this tab will be populated with information on the order lines; when they were created, amended or deleted and by which user.  By default, all requisition lines will show but the filters can be used to only show specific lines, audit actions (e.g. create, edit, delete etc.) or a date range when the action occurred.

Auditing is switched on in System Settings – Auditing.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 22 - Section 2.14


3. Call Off / Service Requisitions

Call off orders will allow free text line orders to be goods received (or ‘called off’) by value rather than quantity by automatically switching the value and quantity fields around.  To use this functionality, make sure Call off orders have been enabled (System Settings – Requisitions).  The name of this functionality can be changed within System Settings if required.

If call off orders are enabled, a check box appears on the order header.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 23 - Section 3


3.1. Call Off Requisition - Entry

If this check box is selected, when a free text line is added the unit price and quantity fields will be swapped – the unit price field will be showing as 1 and cannot be changed.  The order line will need to be completed as standard; i.e. enter a description, select either project or nominal code.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 24 - Section 3.1

Additional free text lines can be added to complete the requisition but no stock items should be added onto a call off order; the Unit Price and Quantity columns are also swapped on the requisition lines grid pages to match the free text entry page and on the PO to the supplier.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 25 - Section 3.1

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 26 - Section 3.1


3.2. Call Off Requisition - Approval

Once the requisition entry has been completed, it will need to be submitted and approved as standard.  During approval the order is marked as a Call Off order in grids to highlight to the approvers as such.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 27 - Section 3.2


3.3. Call Off Requisition - Goods Received

When goods receiving a call off order, the ‘Quantity’ field has been updated to show the ‘Price’.  Enter in the ‘To Be Received’ field the value of the order that has been received, e.g. in the example below, £650 of a £1200 order has been received.

N.B. Standard free text lines and call off orders cannot be goods received together on the same goods received note, these lines would need to be received separately.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 28 - Section 3.3

Within Sage POP the free text line has been amended in the same way to switch the quantity and unit price field on the call off order.  The unit price field will be hidden and locked to 1 to show in the same way as within WAP.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 29 - Section 3.3

An additional tab has been added onto the order within Sage to show the order has been created from WAP and is a call off order.  N.B. this tab will only appear if the Sicon WAP Addon pack has been installed.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 30 - Section 3.3


3.4. Call Off Requisition - Invoicing

When invoicing within Sage, the quantity to be invoiced will show the value that has been received within WAP.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 31 - Section 3.4


4. Internal Purchase Orders

If orders should be raised and approved within WAP but should not post into Sage as a Purchase Order, this can be done by marking the Supplier in Sage as an ‘Internal’ supplier.  Please see below for further information on setting up these analysis codes.

Alternatively, if the site is not linked with Sage Commercials (i.e. does not use Purchase Order Processing to post orders into), any orders raised and approved in WAP will remain within WAP.

If using Expenses and Requisitions, users can raise requisitions against their own PL Expense supplier which will not post into Sage once approved and can be used to link with expenses; for more information on this, please review the Expenses HUG – Linking an Expense Claim to a Requisition section.


4.1. Sage Configuration

Create an analysis code called ‘PRS’ in Sage 200 (Accounting System Manager – Settings – Maintain Analysis Codes) and make sure a value has been created called ‘Internal’.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Section 4 Insert - 4.1 Image 1

Add the PRS analysis code to the Purchase Ledger analysis code setup (Purchase Ledger – Utilities – Ledger Setup – Maintain Analysis Codes).  The field label can be edited to give an appropriate description.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Section 4 Insert - 4.1 Image 2

The internal supplier must be linked with the PRS analysis code and set as an internal supplier.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Section 4 Insert - 4.1 Image 3


4.2. Entering Requisitions in WAP

When entering a requisition, first select from the Filter ‘Internal’.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Section 4 Insert - 4.2 Image 1

Then from the restricted list, select the correct internal supplier.  Make sure the supplier is chosen this way, rather than just selecting the supplier from the main supplier drop down list.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Section 4 Insert - 4.2 Image 2

Complete requisition entry and submit for approval.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Section 4 Insert - 4.2 Image 3


4.3. Approved Internal Order

Once the order has been submitted the pre-configured approval route will be used.  As soon as it has been fully approved, a PO number will be generated but the order will not post into Sage so the PO number will not follow previous PO numbering.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Section 4 Insert - 4.3 Image 1


4.4. WAP Configuration

Within WAP Settings – Sage Connections – Company – Settings, the next Purchase Order number can be configured.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Section 4 Insert - 4.4 Image 1


5. Existing Requisitions

Select Existing Requisitions from the side menu to display the requisitions under various tab headings.  Additional icons will appear in the Flags column to show if the order is over budget, has notes, has attachments or a hyperlink etc.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 32 - Section 4

New:  requisitions that have been saved but not yet submitted for approval.

Submitted:  requisitions that have been submitted and are awaiting approval.  By hovering over the blue information icon on the left, the lines will be displayed showing who they are awaiting approval from.

Approved:  requisitions that have been approved, posted through to Sage and now show a Sage POP Order Number and are ready to be emailed to the supplier.  Once printed, a printer icon will appear and if emailed, an envelope icon will appear.  Approved orders will remain in this tab until they have been fully goods received and invoiced.

Rejected:  requisitions that have been rejected during the approval process will show under this tab.  It is up to the user who submitted the requisition to either delete or edit and resubmit for approval.

Completed:  once an order has been fully goods received and invoiced it will move through to Completed, mirroring the process within Sage.

Failed:  if a requisition fails to post through to Sage it will appear in this tab and will need the error flag removing before it can be posted again.  The permission to clear errors and repost orders is usually just given to Administrators or Finance users.  Common reasons for a requisition failing are due to the supplier being placed on hold within Sage once the requisition has been submitted, lines being entered with a negative value or the project being closed.  More details on any error flags can be viewed through the Event Viewer.

Archived:  users can archive their completed orders.  If there are a large number of completed orders, it is recommended users do this on a regular basis to avoid potential speed issues.


5.1. Viewing Requisitions

By default, users will always be able to see requisitions they have raised or approved.  If permission is given, users may also be able to view all requisitions within the system or all raised by users in the same business unit.

There are two options to search for an existing requisition; either use the Search filters or the Quick Links.

Sicon WAP Requisition Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 33 - Section 4.1

Search filters:  depending on configuration, the user will either be able to search for their own, within their business unit, delegates or all users’ requisitions.  Search filters can be used to find orders with a particular WAP ID, Sage PO number, supplier and if using a costing module, Project.  Use the Show Deleted option to show any requisitions or orders that have been deleted.

Quick Links:  either click ‘Refresh Requests’ to update the grid and retrieve the most recent status of orders or other specific links to show particular orders.  If users have permission, they will be able to archive their completed orders.  All orders within the current grid can also be exported to Excel.


5.2. Viewing Requisitions raised by Colleagues

If users belong to a business unit and they click the Quick Link to view requests raised by my business unit, they will be able to view their own requisitions and any raised by users within their business unit(s).

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 34 - Section 4.2

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 35 - Section 4.2


5.3. Editing Existing Requisitions

By clicking Edit on an existing requisition, this will open up to allow for viewing of order lines, delivery information, quantities received etc.  Depending on User Type permissions, the user may be able to make changes on an order once it has been approved, up until the order has been goods received or invoiced.  Any changes would need to be submitted for re-approval.  Alternatively, users may not be allowed to make any changes to an order once it has been approved and a Sage PO number has been generated.

It is recommended that the only users who could change an order once it has been approved would be Administrators or Finance users.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 36 - Section 4.3


5.4. Copying Existing Requisitions

Once an order has been fully approved it can be copied to create a new requisition.  This functionality is useful if repeat orders are being placed regularly, or orders with many lines.  The user should find the correct order to copy using the search functionality and click to Edit.  Once the order is open, click the Copy Order button at the bottom of the screen.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 37 - Section 4.4

Sage Database:  select the correct Sage company for the new order to be raised in.  Only companies the user has access to will be visible.

Copy From:  this is the order that will be copied; the order number will be automatically populated based on the order that was found but can be changed if required.

Supplier Filter:  if analysis codes are being used to filter and group suppliers, select the correct group here, or leave as the default to show all suppliers.

Supplier:  choose the correct supplier the new order should be raised for; start typing either the supplier name or account number to find.

Copy Order Line Prices and Discounts:  this is ticked by default but untick if prices should not be entered on the new requisition from the existing order.

Copy:  click here to create the new requisition, or cancel out to avoid completing this.

Once copied, a new requisition is created.  This new requisition can then be edited if required; i.e. if lines need to be added or deleted, or changes to quantities etc. need to be made.  Once the requisition is correct, this can then be submitted for approval.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 38 - Section 4.4


5.5. Deleting Existing Requisitions

If the user has permission to do so, they will be able to delete a requisition using the ‘Delete’ button.  An order can be deleted once it has been approved unless goods have been received or an invoice has been entered.  If an order has been approved and posted through to Sage but is then deleted, it will show in Sage as Completed with a zero order value.  If a user does not have permission to delete requisitions, they will see a message advising this.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 39 - Section 4.5


6. Approve Requisitions

To approve a requisition, either click on a hyperlink notification on the user’s WAP homepage, or navigate to the Approve Requisitions page from the side menu.


6.1. Requisitions to Approve

All requisitions awaiting the user to approve will be listed; click on the arrow on the left to expand and view the requisition line details.  Only lines awaiting the current user for approval will be visible.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 40 - Section 5.1

Lines:  this tab will show all lines awaiting approval from the user with information on quantity, price, nominal and project.  The View Order Details button will take the approver through to the main requisition page to view the requisition fully or to make any amendments, see below for further information on viewing order details.  Individual lines can either be approved or rejected, or the whole order can be approved or rejected.  See below for further information on Rejecting Requisitions.

Attachments:  this tab will allow for any attachments added to be viewed.  The number of attachments will be shown in brackets on the tab.

Order Justification:  this tab will allow for any quotes added to be viewed.  The number of quotes will be shown in brackets on the tab.

Notes:  if any notes were added during creation of the requisition, these will be visible here.  Notes can also be viewed by hovering over the post-it note icon under the Flags column.  Additional notes can be added by the approver in this tab too.

Budgets:  if configured, budget information can be viewed here showing further information on whether the nominal, or Sicon project is within or over budget.  If a line is over budget it will be highlighted on the Lines tab in red and there will be a red flag under the Flags column.

Analysis Codes:  if analysis codes have been configured in Sage and completed during requisition entry, these will be visible here.  Approvers are not able to change values selected on this tab.

Approval History:  each line requiring approval will be displayed showing approval history.

If the approver has permission to approve multiple orders at a time, they will be able to select multiple requisitions to approve without needing to open to view individual lines.  It is recommended that the only users who could approve multiple orders at once would be Administrators or Finance users.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 41 - Section 5.1


6.2. Requisitions to Approve - Reject

If an approver wishes to reject one or all lines, they can click either Reject or Reject All; they will then need to enter a reason for rejecting before choosing to reject.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 42 - Section 5.2

The user who raised the requisition initially will be sent a notification containing the rejection reason and the requisition will appear under the Rejected tab under Existing Requisitions.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 43 - Section 5.2

The user who submitted the requisition can now:

  1. Delete the requisition if the approver has not allowed the purchase to be made (if the user has permission to delete a requisition).
  2. If the requisition has multiple lines, one which has been rejected and other lines which have been approved, delete the rejected line and resubmit the requisition. This will cause the requisition to move through as Approved and will post through to Sage.
  3. Edit the requisition to correct the rejected line and resubmit for approval.

To correct the rejected line (option 3); Edit the requisition, edit the rejected line, make the correct change and save the line.  In this example the quantity is being reduced from three to two.  Once the change has been made, click the Authorisation tab and Restart the approval route.  This is necessary to clear the rejected flag and allow for the requisition to be resubmitted for approval.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 44 - Section 5.2

Once the line has been reset, save and submit the requisition for approval; this will start the approval process again.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 45 - Section 5.2


6.3. Requisitions to Approve - View Order Details

If during approval the approver wishes to see the original requisitions, they should click the ‘View Order Details’ button.  If approval routes are configured based on nominal code, project, lines could be sent to other users to approve; when viewing the requisition as an approver, their lines to approve are highlighted for visibility – green if the line is within budget or red if the line is over budget.  Approvers are able to make changes to lines; by default, this would not cause the document to restart its approval route although the system can be configured so changes made by approvers will cause the document to restart the approval process.

The approver will have options at the bottom of the requisition screen to either approve or reject lines without need to go back to the existing Approve Requisitions page.  This will only approve or reject lines waiting for the current approver, it will not approve or reject lines waiting other users to approve.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 46 - Section 5.3


6.4. Fully Approved Requisitions

Once approved, the requisition will move through the configured approval route until approved by an approver with sufficient approval value rights and any mandatory checks have been completed; at this point the requisition is posted into Sage as a PO and a Purchase Order number is generated within WAP.  The user who submitted the requisition would get a notification advising them it has been fully approved.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 47 - Section 5.4


7. Printing and Emailing Purchase Orders

Once a requisition has been fully approved and generated a PO number, it can be printed then emailed to the supplier from within WAP.  Once the order has been found under the Approved tab, click on the Print Summary option and a preview will be generated – see below for details on configuring and linking PO layouts.

N.B. as the print PO preview screen is a pop-up, the Sicon WAP website must be configured to allow pop-ups.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 48 - Section 6

The PO can be printed if required, exported as a PDF document or emailed directly to the supplier by clicking the ‘Click here for email options’ banner.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 49 - Section 6

From:  by default the option to send from the user’s email address will be selected but can be changed so the email is sent from the system email address as configured in System Settings – Email.

Supplier Contact:  this email is pulled through from the supplier contact field on the requisition but the user is able to override if needed.

CC:  enter an email address here if someone else should receive the email.

Subject:  this text can be configured within System Setup – Sage Connections.

Include me:  tick this box if the user should receive a copy of the email as well as the supplier.  NB. When this is first selected, a pop-up will display that allows the user to default to the selection chosen.

Body:  this text can be configured within System Settings – Sage Connections although users are able to override to include any other information required when sending through to the supplier.

Attachments:  up to three attachments can be uploaded to be emailed out to the supplier along with the PO.

Once the order has been sent through to the supplier, an envelope icon will appear in the Flags column against the order, under the Approved Requisitions.  If printed, a printer icon will show.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 50 - Section 6

N.B. It is also possible to automatically email requisition on posting to Sage within system settings. Once the PO number is generated, WAP will automatically email out the default layout from within Sage Connections to the supplier on the order. An email address will need to have been entered on the order for this to have been successful.


7.1. Purchase Order Layouts

PO Layouts are stored within System Settings – Reports.  A number of layouts are pre-configured at install; hover over the thumbnail image to view the layout.  A report can be renamed by clicking Edit but to make any changes to the layout, click Design.  Layouts can also be Exported and then imported if changes are to be made.

N.B. The reports are designed using DevExpress and we strongly advise only experienced report writers make changes to a design layout.  Please ensure a backup is taken before any changes are made by exporting the layout as a .xml file.  Any issues resulting from making changes may incur chargeable consultancy to resolve.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 51 - Section 6.1

Up to two layouts can be used per Sage Company; these are configured in Sage Connections – Company Details – Purchase Order – Purchase Order Report.  There is an option within Sage Connections to upload Terms and Conditions which would be emailed to the supplier along with the Purchase Order.  However, many companies now prefer to include standard text on the PO layout or email body text stating e.g. “For full Terms & Conditions please visit www.companyname.co.uk/terms-and-conditions”.  If Terms and Conditions are to be emailed along with the PO, there is an option to print them in a landscape format.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 52 - Section 6.1


8. Goods Received

To goods receive an order, click on the Goods Receive option on the side menu.  Once goods have been received in WAP against a PO, the quantities will update through on the Sage PO in Sage POP.

By default, the list displayed will show approved orders raised by that user only, that have not been fully received.  Depending on configuration, the user may also be able to see orders raised by other users within their business unit(s) or all orders raised in the system.  Specific orders can be found using the filters at the top of the screen to search by supplier, Project or a PO number.  There are also filter boxes on each column header.

To receive goods, select an order using the tick box and click Receive.  If required, multiple orders can be received against the same supplier, as long as they all have the same confirmation intent type (e.g. Goods Received, as configured in Sage).

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 53 - Section 7


8.1. Receiving Goods or Services

Once an order has been selected, the individual lines requiring goods to be receipted will be displayed.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 54 - Section 7.1

Receipt Date:  this will default to the current date.

Supplier Document No:  this is a mandatory field and will either be the delivery note number (if applicable) or an agreed text for all users to enter, e.g. their initials and the date.

GRN Number:  the system will populate this automatically when the goods received screen is saved.

Supplier Document Date:  this will default to the current date but can be changed if needed.

Narrative:  free text field to allow the user to record any additional information if required.

Final Receipt:  if the user has the usertype setting to Confirm Final Receipt, when recording a final, part delivery, this button can be ticked to amend the PO in WAP and Sage.  Please see below for more information on using the Final Receipt Functionality.

Attach Goods Received Note:  goods received documentation can be uploaded through this banner using the drop files or browse option.  If Sicon Document Management is enabled, this document can be viewed in Sage POP by users with a DMS view licence, either by viewing the delivery history of the order line, through the Sage Amend Goods Received screen or by using the Search functionality within the Sicon Document Management menu option.  It is also visible in the Quantities tab of the WAP order, by clicking on the Received quantity hyperlink.

Warehouse: On stock items, the warehouse the item was ordered for will appear, but it is possible for the user to override this on this screen and selecting the appropriate warehouse to receive the item into.

Qty Received:  enter the quantity that has been received against each line.  By default, the system will not allow over receipt of goods but will allow for a part delivery to be recorded (this can be configured in the Requisition system settings).  If a part delivery has been received, the remaining items will stay on the PO as to be received at a later date, the order will stay as an approved requisition and will remain as a live PO in Sage until all items have been delivered.

Print Note on Save:  tick to allow for a popup to appear on Save which can then send an email confirming goods have been received; this email can either be sent to the supplier or to a WAP user.  NB. The GRN generated at this point would be a temporary GRN from WAP.  If using Sage GRN to track orders, we recommend printing the GRN from within the WAP Amend Goods Received tab instead (at which point the correct GRN has been generated by Sage).

Save:  once goods received quantities have been entered, click Save to confirm.

Cancel:  click to close out of this screen without saving any changes.

Receive All:  click to populate all lines with the outstanding order line quantities.

If lines on the requisition have different confirmation intents (as configured in Sage), these lines must be receipted separately; this is done to ensure that all good receipts are posted correctly through to Sage.  If lines have different confirmation intents; i.e. if there is a stock line and a free text line with confirmation not required, the below message will be shown.  One receipt per confirmation intent will need to be done.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 55 - Section 7.1


8.2. Receiving Batch or Serial Number Goods

When goods receiving stock items which belong to a product group where ‘Items use Batch or Serial Numbers’, an option will appear to select the Batch/Serial field.  Click the arrow to expand the line and enter the batch or serial number and the appropriate goods received quantity.  If each item needs a separate batch or serial number, click the ‘Add new Batch/Serial button’.  Once all lines have been allocated the correct numbers and quantities, click to save.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 56 - Section 7.2


8.3. Amending Goods Received

If an error has been made when goods receiving, the option to amend goods received will allow users to change the quantity received.  Under the tab to amend, find the correct order using the filter options and click to edit.

N.B. this option is not possible if a user has marked a goods received as ‘Final Receipt’.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 57 - Section 7.3

In the below example, the original quantity received was four but on checking the delivery it was found to actually be three.  The ‘Amended Received’ quantity is changed to 3 and saved; this will then update the PO in Sage to show the correct quantity.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 58 - Section 7.3

N.B. It is not possible to amend the warehouse at this stage.


8.4. Final Receipts

If an order has been part delivered and it is known that outstanding quantities will not be received, tick the ‘This is the Final Receipt’ button; this will update the PO in WAP and Sage so the order quantity will be the same as the goods received quantity.  N.B. if this is done it will mean the order can no longer be edited or the goods received quantity amended so should therefore be used with caution.  To be able to Confirm Final Receipt is a Usertype permission.

In the below example the original order was for 10, 8 are being final goods receipted so this will change the order in WAP and Sage to be for 8.  This means that when an invoice is entered for 8, the order will then move to Complete.  If the remaining two were to be delivered at a later date they cannot be goods received on this order; a new PO would need to be raised, approved and then goods receipted against.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 59 - Section 7.4

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 60 - Section 7.4

The Approval History will show that the goods were final receipted.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 61 - Section 7.4


8.5. Zero Value Final Receipts

If a final receipt leads to an order having no lines with a quantity greater than zero, the order will be deleted in WAP and cancelled in Sage; the system is being told the order is no longer to be received or required.  In the example below, one desk was ordered but the order cannot be fulfilled so the user final receipts this line at zero; this will then cancel the order which moves it to Complete in both WAP and Sage.  It is a usertype permission to Final Receipt.

Sicon Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 62 - Section 7.5

The order can be found in WAP using the search filters and including the option to view deleted orders.  Once the order is found, it is possible to then view the deleted lines and use the Approval History tab to see which user goods receipted the order which caused it to be deleted and set to completed within WAP and Sage.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 71 - Section 8.5


10. Import Requisitions

If a user has permission to import requisitions, there is a side menu option for ‘Import Requisitions’.  Templates can be generated here, completed and then imported.  This functionality is useful if a site is regularly creating unique requisitions with many lines as this can speed up requisition entry.  Once an import has been completed and validated, it can be imported.  There is an option to either import as a New Requisition which will require submission, or to submit when importing so the requisition will be sent down the approval route straight away.  Note, if checking budgets in WAP, users will need to manually check and submit requisitions deemed over-budget.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guides - Requisition Image 72 - Section 9

If the order was set to submit, it will be showing to the user under the Submitted tab.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 73 - Section 9

If the order was not set to submit, it will be showing to the user under the New tab.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 74 - Section 9

Standard pre-configured approval routes will be used, either based on nominal, Project, requesting user etc. and if configured, budgets are checked either against the nominal code or the Project, as configured.


11. Templates (for use with Sage 200 Stock)

If a site is using Stock within Sage 200 it is possible to create templates in WAP that can then be used for repeat stock requisitions.  If a user has permission to create or amend templates, there is a side menu option for ‘Templates’.  Any templates previously created will show here and can be edited, or new templates can be created.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 75 - Section 10


11.1. New Templates

To create a new stock template, click the New Template option.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 76 - Section 10.1

Company:  pick the correct Sage Company from the drop down list.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 77 - Section 10.1

Add / Edit Stock Items:  this option can be used to select multiple items to appear on the template for one supplier.  All stock items provided by the supplier will be listed and can either be selected individually or by ticking ‘Auto Add Items with Quantities’ and editing the quantity accordingly; the complete list will be added to the template once saved.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 78 - Section 10.1

Once the correct stock items have been added to the template, the template can either be saved or used to create a new requisition.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 79 - Section 10.1

Save:  use this to save the template so it is available to other users when entering a requisition.

Close:  use to close the screen without saving any changes.

Copy Template:  use this option to copy template and make changes if required.

Generate:  create a requisition based on the template; this will not be submitted for approval by appear on the New tab so edits can be made before the requisition is submitted.

Generate and Submit for Approval:  create a requisition based on the template that is submitted for approval.  Standard pre-configured approval routes will be used, either based on nominal, Project, requesting user etc. and if configured, budgets are checked either against the nominal code or the Sicon Project, as configured.

Update all items to use Preferred Supplier:  if the template was created and the supplier was not the preferred supplier (as set in Sage 200), this will update the template so the preferred supplier is used.


11.2. Editing Existing Templates

Once a template has been created, it is possible to edit by clicking the Edit button and deleting or making changes to existing lines or adding new lines.


11.3. Creating a Requisition from a Template

If a user is configured to be able to use a template, there will be the option to create a new requisition based on a template from the New Requisition screen.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 80 - Section 10.3

Select the required template from the drop down box and click to create.  The delivery date and quantities can be edited if needed and then either choose to generate or generate and submit for approval.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 81 - Section 10.3

Generate:  create a requisition based on the template; this will not be submitted for approval by appear on the New tab so edits can be made before the requisition is submitted.

Generate and Submit for Approval:  create a requisition based on the template that is submitted for approval.  Standard pre-configured approval routes will be used, either based on nominal, Sicon Project, requesting user etc. and if configured, budgets are checked either against the nominal code or the Sicon Project, as configured.

Close:  use to close the screen without saving any changes.

N.B. if a costing module is configured, a template cannot be submitted for approval until all lines have a Sicon Project and Sicon Project header allocated.  The template will need to be generated, all lines allocated a Sicon Project and Sicon Project header and then submitted for approval.


12. Project Requisitions

Project Requisitions allow a user to create a ‘shopping list’ of items they require where they do not know the supplier or price.  Project requisitions will then require approval from a member of a Procurement Team who will add in prices and suppliers; once all lines have been completed, the project requisition will become a requisition that will go for approval based on pre-configured approval routes.  Once the requisition has been fully approved it will become a PO ready to be sent to the supplier and will post through to Sage.  If the project requisition has multiple lines and multiple suppliers are allocated, multiple requisitions will be created.


12.1. Project Requisition Approval Route Options

Approval routes can only be configured based on requesting user; it could be that only one default approval route needs to be created that will work for all project requisitions; for example, if any user submits a project requisition it will require approval from a member of the Procurement Team.  When building the route either use the User List or User Type option to allow for the requisition to be sent to multiple users but require only one user to complete.

15.2. General Tab - Functionality Banner

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 117 - Section 14.2

Sicon MRP Integration Enabled:  this will only be switched on if orders generated via MRP should be pulled through to WAP for approval.

Allow out of hours’ orders:  if enabled, out of hours’ requisitions can be raised that will post straight through to Sage and create a PO number, but will need to be approved retrospectively.

Enable ‘Free Text’ line entry (Requisitions):  untick this setting if users should not be able to enter a free text line on a requisition.

Enable ‘Free Text’ line entry (Project Requisitions):  untick this setting if users should not be able to enter a free text line on a project requisition.

Enable ‘Stock Item’ line entry:  untick this setting if users should not be able to enter a stock item line.

Enable ‘Comment’ line entry:  untick this setting if users should not be able to add comment lines on a requisition.

Enable ‘Additional Charge’ line entry:  untick this setting if users should not be able to add additional charge lines on a requisition; it may be that postage or carriage costs should be added as either a free text or stock item line.

Auto populate Order Date with current date:  by default this setting is on but can be unticked if the user should select the required order date.

Auto populate Delivery Date with current date:  untick this setting if users should be forced to select the correct delivery date rather than the date being automatically populated with the order date.

Automatically post to Sage when raising a requisition:  this setting should only be used where a PO can be created and a PO number raised before the requisition is approved.  This setting is not commonly used; a requisition should be fully approved before a PO is created.

Allow requisitions to be submitted without a Supplier:  this setting will allow users to enter lines on a requisition without selecting a supplier; a supplier must be selected prior to the requisition posting through to Sage.

Auto populate supplier from stock item preferred supplier (if no supplier set):  this setting would be used in conjunction with the setting above so when a stock item is selected, the preferred supplier will populate the supplier field on the requisition header page.

Stock Item Preferred Supplier must match Order supplier (if supplier set):  if this is configured and a user selects a supplier on a requisition and then picks a stock item that is not linked with that supplier, a warning will show stating that the supplier chosen is not the preferred supplier and so the line cannot be saved.  The preferred supplier will be shown to allow users to change the supplier selected on the requisition header page.

Use supplier price breaks (Enhancement pack required):  if Sicon Enhancement pack is configured in Sage and a stock item has been configured to use supplier price breaks, these can be read by WAP.

Use standard pricing methods for Misc items:  miscellaneous items will use the stock item standard cost unless this setting is on, in which case it will get the pricing the same as it does for standard items.

Allow requisitions to be saved without lines added:  by default, if a requisition is added with no lines, the system will prompt users to allow for the requisition to be saved but if this shouldn’t be possible, this setting can be configured to not allow this.

Value to use for Document Date when posting Requisitions:  this can either be set to use the requisition document date or the current date; i.e. the date when the requisition is approved and posts through to Sage.

Allow Past dates on Requisition Entry:  by default the system won’t allow requisitions to be raised in the past but if this is required, this box can be ticked.

Maximum Number of lines on a requisition:  by default this is configured to allow no more than 200 lines on a requisition but this can be amended accordingly to match company requirements.

Disable submitting of over budget requisitions:  if required, users can be prevented from saving a requisition if the line has a nominal or project that is over budget.  If configured, it can cause users to select another nominal code or project that is within budget but may not be the correct one.

Select Stock Item Default Nominal Account when a Stock Item has been selected:  if configured, the nominal code will be populated from the stock item selected, rather than the user having to select manually.

Use Supplier Catalogue on free text line entry: Only relevant to users of Sicon Distribution.  If this setting is switched on, users can pick items from the Sicon Distribution supplier catalogue.  Further information is available in the Distribution Help and User Guide. See Section 2.1 – Supplier Catalogue of our Distribution Help and User Guide.

Select Free Text line Default Nominal when a new Free Text Line is created:  if this setting is switched on, the default nominal code set against the supplier will be used on the line.

Allow amendment of Discount Percent on Requisition Entry:  this will allow users to make changes to any discount percent against an item.

Stock Item Pricing Mode:  select from the drop down list the appropriate stock pricing mode; by default, this is configured as set on supplier.

Use Warehouse Nominal Account Override:  if configured, the nominal cost centre or department can be overridden based on the warehouse selected on the stock item line.

Enable Document Number Prefix:  this setting can allow a prefix to the PO number; the prefix is pulled from Sage Connections against the specific company.

Enable Free Text Delivery Addresses:  this option will allow users to free type a delivery address on a requisition; this is usually not recommended as the preferred option is to allow users to select an address from a drop down box.

Enable Supplier Delivery Addresses:  this option allows users to select the supplier’s address as configured in Sage.

Enable Project Delivery Addresses:  if a costing module is configured, addresses from projects can be selected.

Enable Customer Delivery Addresses:  if applicable, the customer’s address from the costing module project can be selected.

Disable Nominal Selection when a project is selected:  if enabled, the nominal code will pull through from the Project Header/Project Item on the requisition line, instead of the user having to select the nominal code.

Retain Line Information on Save:  with this ticked information such as the nominal code or project will be held when the line is saved.  This can speed up the requisition entry process for users who input requisitions with lots of lines where the nominal code or project is not changed.

On line delivery date, use the order header requested delivery date rather than the stock lead time date:  by default, if a stock item has a lead time set against it in Sage, the line delivery date will be changed to reflect this.  If this setting is configured, the line delivery date will remain as the delivery date set on the order header page.

No default tax rate on new orders:  if enabled, users will need to select the appropriate tax rate for that line on the requisition.  If disabled, the default tax rate will be pulled through from how the company has been configured in Sage PL.

Use ‘Standard’ tax rate only (Charge Items):  configure so only the standard tax rate can be used on charge lines.

Use Supplier Default Tax Rate (Charge Items):  configure so the tax rate set against the supplier in Sage PL is used; if not configured, the standard tax rate set against the company in Sage Connections will be used.

Automatically Load Existing Orders on Page Load:  by default, this will be on and if a user clicks on Existing Requisitions, orders they have raised will be loaded automatically.  If this is causing speed issued, this can be turned off to force users to search for specific orders.

Allow confidential requisitions:  if enabled, a check box will appear on the requisition header page for the user to flag the requisition as confidential.  This means the requisition will only be seen by the requester, required approver and any users with the View All Requisition User Type permission.

Enable ‘Call off’ Requisitions:  if enabled, a check box will appear on the requisition header page for the user to flag the requisition as a call off order.

‘Call off’ requisitions label:  the call off field can be renamed as required.

Requisitions are ‘Call off’ requisitions by default:  if all, or the majority of orders are call off orders, this can be ticked.  Users are still able to untick the box is a non-call off order is being raised.

Allocate Stock Items by WAP Delivery Address:  configure if stock items should be allocated based on the delivery address entered when the requisition is raised.

Update delivery date on approved PO without requiring additional approval:  if the delivery date field can be changed on an approved order and this update through to Sage without the PO requiring additional approval, configure here.  On an approved order if the date is being changed, the order will not need to be submitted again, once the change has been made, save the order and the date will update through to Sage.  If any changes require approval before posting to Sage, leave this setting unticked.

Automatic printing – Automatically print Requisition and email to Supplier on Posting to Sage:  if configured, once a requisition has been fully approved it will email the PO to the supplier straight away.  This will only send an email if an email address has been set against the PL supplier account.

15.3. General Tab - Goods Received Banner

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 118 - Section 14.3

Enable Receive All button on Goods Received:  if enabled, a Receive All option on the goods received process will automatically populate the quantity to be received from the outstanding quantity values.

Allow over receipt of goods:  if enabled, users will be allowed to over receipt goods.  By default, this is not configured.

Goods Received Reference Source:  the reference recorded in Sage can either be the Goods Received Supplier Document Number (Reference), the WAP Username, or both.

Goods Received Attachment is mandatory:  if users must upload a GRN document when goods receiving, tick here for an attachment to be mandatory.  This may be used mostly by sites ordering in goods rather than service or free text items.

Enable editing Free Text line description when partially received/invoiced:  if allowed, free text line descriptions can be edited when the line has been partly goods received or invoiced.

Allow duplicate Supplier document number entry:  if GRN document numbers should not be duplicated for individual suppliers, configure here.  This setting may be used mostly by sites ordering in goods rather than service or free text items.


15.4. General Tab - Order Templates Banner

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 119 - Section 14.4

Auto Populate Delivery Date:  if ticked, the delivery date will auto populate to the current date.  If unticked, the user must select a specific delivery date.

Enable All Supplier Stock Items Template:  if enabled, this template will be available to users when raising a stock requisition.

Enable User Order Template Allocation:  if enabled, multiple templates can be crated and users allocated to them as required (User Setup – Requisition Templates).


15.5. General Tab - Justification Banner

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 120 - Section 14.5

Sage Database:  select whether the justification bands are for one specific database or valid across all Sage Companies.

Enter Justification bands as required; in the example above, documents under £500 do not require a quote to be attached, documents between £500 and £5,000 must have one quote attached and documents over £5,000 must have two quotes attached.  When creating the justification bands there cannot be any overlapping; e.g. £0 – £500 band and also £200 – £400.


15.6. General Tab - Spare Fields Banner

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 121 - Section 14.6

If another application is using Spare Fields in the database for additional analysis options, these can be configured in WAP to appear on requisition order entry.  Values will then post through to Sage (but will not be visible to the end user as this is linked to the database only).  Rename each field within here if appropriate to assist end users from populating the data in the correct location in the database.


15.7. Printing Tab

These settings are legacy settings relating to versions prior to v18; any changes made here will not affect the PO Layouts configured in Sage Connections.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 122 - Section 14.7


15.8. Analysis Codes Tab

WAP Requisitions can pull through up to 20 Sage POP Analysis Codes as required; these are configured in Sage (Accounting System Manager and POP Maintenance).  Selecting Default will populate the requisition with the corresponding code from Sage POP.  If the WAP settings are configured to ‘Populate from Order’, the analysis codes will appear at the bottom of the requisitions Delivery and Invoicing tab, but if the setting is changed to ‘Validate on Line’, the codes can be selected at the time of entering each line and therefore can be different per line.

The codes can be marked as Mandatory and if they need to appear on the Existing Requisitions or Approve Requisitions grids in WAP, check the ‘Include in Grids’ option.  If the code labelling needs to be changed to make it more user friendly, tick the custom label box and enter the new narrative as required.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 123 - Section 14.8

It is also possible to populate the Sage POP Analysis Codes with particular WAP fields.  Check in Sage the number of the next free analysis code in Sage POP and then within WAP select from the drop down list available.  In the example below, the POP Analysis Code 4 will be populated with the Requisitioner Name.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 124 - Section 14.8

17. Requisition User Permissions

A number of permissions can be set on the user profile relating to entering, viewing or approving requisitions.


17.1. Account Options Tab

Against a user set their Requisition Item and Approval values; item value is the amount the user is able to enter a requisition for and approval value is the amount a user is able to approve a requisition for.  If a user is not allowed to approve a requisition, leave the approval value as zero.  If a user has unlimited approval value (i.e. for users at the end of an approval route), set the approval value as 999,999,999.

A user can also be given a self-approval value; any requisitions raised up to the self-approval value will automatically post through to Sage without going down an approval route.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 126 - Section 16.1

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 127 - Section 16.1

Check Budgets on Self-Approval:  if a user has a self-approval value, all requisitions raised up to that value will automatically approve.  However, if this is ticked and a requisition is raised that is over-budget, the requisition will require approval.  If this setting is not ticked, any requisitions raised up to the user’s self-approval value will automatically post to Sage, even if the nominal or project is over-budget.

Can change requested by:  if ticked, the user is able to change the user raising the requisition – as set on the Justification tab when entering a new requisition.

View all Nominals on Budget Enquiry:  if the user has permission to view the budget enquiry they will be able to view budgets against nominal codes they have access to; if this is ticked they will be able to view all nominal codes.

Can Override Budgets:  various options for users to be able to override nominal or project budgets when entering a requisition.  If a user has permission to override a budget, the requisition will not be flagged as over-budget and therefore not require additional approval – if approval routes have been configured as such.


17.2. Business Units Tab

If the user belongs to a business unit they will be able to view any requisitions raised by other users within the business unit.  If a user has access to multiple business units, they can change the business unit on the Justification tab when entering a new requisition.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 128 - Section 16.2


17.3. Nominal Tab

This tab can be used to view nominal codes the user has been given access to, or to set that the user is to have access to all nominal codes.  These codes will be visible to the user when entering a new requisition or if the user has permission to, to view the budget information against.  Different approval values can be set against a nominal code that would be used during requisition approval.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 129 - Section 16.3


17.4. Projects Tab

If a costing module has been configured, this tab can be used to view projects or project headers the user has been given access to, or to set that the user is to have access to all projects or project headers.  These projects and project headers will be visible to the user when entering a new requisition.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 130 - Section 16.4


17.5. Company Access Tab

This tab will show what companies the user has been given access to along with their default delivery and invoice addresses.  Generally, users will be able to change the delivery address when entering a requisition but wouldn’t be able to change the invoice address.  A nominal code can be set against a company which can be used when entering a requisition; e.g. if a user only raises requisitions against one nominal code, this can be defaulted.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 131 - Section 16.5


18. System User Type Permissions - Requisitions

It is possible to override a number of system settings per user type.  This can be useful if different user types have different uses of the requisition module.  If no user type should have any different settings than either the system settings, leave this screen.

Sicon WAP Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition Image 132 - Section 17

Supplier Filters – Supplier Stock Filter Configuration:  the default from System Settings will be used initially but if required can be changed; for example it might be for one user type stock items can only be ordered from the preferred supplier while for another user type stock can be purchased from any company.  In the above example, as this setting has the ‘Derive’ option selected, this setting is the same for the Managers as the system setting.

Supplier Filters – Supplier/Unit Pricing Display:  the default from System Settings will be used initially but if required it can be changed; for example it might be that for one user type the pricing will be visible per supplier but for another user type it shouldn’t be visible.

Enable ‘Free Text’ line entry:  the default from System Settings will be used initially but if required it can be changed; for example it might be that for one user type free text lines can be entered on a requisition but for another user type, they should only be able to raise stock lines.

Enable Item Description Amendment:  the default from System Settings will be used initially but if required it can be changed; for example it might be that for one user type they are able to amend an item description on a stock item but another user type shouldn’t be able to change the description.


19. Requisition Approval Stages


19.1. Requisition Header Status

New:  the requisition has been saved but not yet submitted.

Submitted:  the requisition has been submitted for approval but not yet fully approved.

Approved:  the requisition has been approved and would have posted through to Sage.  Once a requisition has been approved it will be able to be emailed to a supplier.

Rejected:  one or more lines on the requisition have been rejected.  N.B. a rejected line must be edited and saved before being submitted again for the reject flag to be cleared; a rejected requisition simply submitted again will not clear the reject flag.  A requisition will not post through to Sage if there is a rejected line on the requisition.

Completed:  the requisition has been fully goods received and fully invoiced.

Failed:  if a requisition has failed to post to Sage it will appear here.  Most likely reasons for the requisition to fail are if a costing module is enabled but the project or project has been closed or set to not allow costs entered against it.  Please check the Project and then clear the error and repost the requisition (these are usually Superuser permissions).

Archived:  any completed requisitions the user has archived will show on here; archived requisitions will not appear in search results unless searched for specifically.


19.2. Requisition Line Status

New:  the line has not yet been submitted.

Waiting:  the line is awaiting approval from an authoriser.

Authorised:  the line has been fully approved.

Rejected:  the line has been rejected; all lines must be authorised before the requisition will post to Sage.

No Authorisers:  there are no authorisers for the line; the line will need to be reset and the requisition submitted for the correct approval route to be used.


20. Enable Module

Each year the WAP system will require a new enable string to continue working.  When the new string has been issued, within select System Settings.  Under the System Settings Banner – Miscellaneous – Licencing – Apply new licence – Browse and Upload the licence string.  N.B. the module expiry date is shown along with the modules that have been enabled and the maximum number of users.
