Product overview

Help and User Guide maintained for WAP version 210.0.0 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. WAP Requisition Prerequisites

Before adding requisitions onto the system, the below steps will need to be followed; these steps may not all be relevant depending on whether a costing module is being used and how the system is to be configured.

Further information on these sections can be found throughout this Help and User Guide.

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

* Please make sure the WAP Service is restarted following any changes.


2. Requisition Flow

Requisitions will generally follow the same flow through the system, see below.  There will be some that may require multiple goods received against or may go through the approval process a number of times until all lines have been fully approved.  The stage after receiving goods would be invoicing; this is covered off in our WAP Invoices Help and User Guide.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 2 Image 1


3. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 3 Image 1

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


4. Costing Module Integration Prerequisites

The WAP system can be configured to integrate with Sicon Projects, Sage Project Accounting or WAP Projects.  Select accordingly with System Settings – Costing – once a costing module has been set, please restart the WAP service.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4 Image 1


4.1. Sicon Projects

Below are a number of things to consider when setting up Projects to be linked with WAP.  For more information on any of these points, please see the Projects Help and User Guides.

Make sure Project Headers have been created that correspond with how purchases are to be costed; default nominal codes can be set against each header.  Headers need to be linked to a Header Type with a WAP type ‘P’ for them to be visible when users raise requisitions.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.1 Image 1

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.1 Image 2

It is possible for Cost Centre and Department overrides to be set against the Project.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.1 Image 3

Default projects and project headers can be set in Projects settings which will get picked up by WAP when entering a requisition.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.1 Image 4

If using Stock in Sage, it is possible to set a default project header per stock item – this will get configured in WAP if raising a requisition against the stock item.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.1 Image 5


4.2. Sage Project Accounting

Below are a couple of things to consider when setting up Sage Project Accounting to be linked with WAP.  For more information on any of these points, please discuss with your Sage Business Partner.

Ensure Project Accounting has been linked with Purchase Order Processing.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.2 Image 1

Ensure Projects have Project Items setup for spend to be allocated against; default nominal accounts can be linked with Project Items.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.2 Image 2


4.3. WAP Projects

WAP Projects is a simple costing module which sits within WAP and does not post to Sage – it can only be used if no other costing module is in use.

Ensure Projects have been created for users to select.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.3 Image 1

Ensure Project Items are available for use on the Requisition module (Project Item Types are linked with a document type; project items are then linked with the project item type).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 4.3 Image 2


5. New Requisitions

This section will go through how to raise a requisition; all options have been switched on for documentation and the WAP system linked with Sicon Projects.  These options below can be configured as required either in System Settings or User Type permissions.

To enter a new requisition, hover over the menu in the top left then hover over Requisitions and click on Create New.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5 Image 1

New Requisition Entry screen:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5 Image 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.  Ensure the company is correct before a supplier is searched for.

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. For more information please see the Approved Supplier section of this Help and User Guide.

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.  Notifications are also highlighted bright red to ensure users have visibility of urgent orders.

Confidential:  if the user ticks the requisition as confidential, the only users that will be able to see the order will be the user who raised the requisition, the approver(s) and users with the User Type permission to view all orders.  If Business Units are setup, other users within the business unit will not have visibility of confidential orders.

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. For more information please see the Call Off Orders section of this Help and User Guide.

Default Project:  if linked with Sicon Projects, a default Project here will ensure under the Delivery tab, addresses linked with this Project will show.  This project will also populate on any free text or stock item lines but can be overridden if required.

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.

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.

Show Related Project Requisitions:  this option is not possible until the requisition has been fully approved; if applicable, 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.  This is useful if changes have been made to the lines or to the approval route and the document needs to be re-approved.  Once the lines have been fully approved, they cannot be reset.

Close:  this will close the screen and return the user to the Existing Requisitions screen.


5.1. Add a Free Text Line

Select Add a Free Text Line and complete as required.  Certain fields (such as Job and Header selection) will only show if configured and other fields can be hidden to simplify the screen for end users.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.1 Image 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 boxes.  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 drop-down list.  Alternatively, users can be given access to specific Projects and Project Headers/Project Items.

With Sicon Projects, only Project headers that belong to a Project Header Type with a WAP type of ‘P’ will be shown.  If the default POP project header isn’t showing, check the Project Header Type is setup correctly.

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.1 Image 2

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.  If the user has a large number of codes assigned, the magnifying glass can be clicked on to allow further filtering which can aid selection.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.1 Image 3

Nominal codes can be set to pull through automatically from the supplier’s default nominal code but this can be switched off to make sure the user selects from the drop-down list the correct code.

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.1 Image 4


5.2. 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 POP 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.  Only project headers belonging to a Project Header Type with WAP type ‘P’ will be visible for selection.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.2 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.  Images will only show if the WebAPI has been configured.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.2 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 per configuration within Sage on the Product Type 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 200.

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 from the lead time as set on the stock item 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/Projects’ ticked on their User profile, all live Projects will appear in the drop-down list.  Alternatively, users can be given access to specific Projects and Project Headers/Project Items.

With Sicon Projects, only Project headers that belong to a Project Header Type with a WAP type of ‘P’ will be shown.  If the default Stock or POP project header isn’t showing, check the Project Header Type is setup correctly.

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.  The system can be configured to allow this if required.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.2 Image 3

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.

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.2 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.2 Image 5


5.3. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.3 Image 1


5.4. 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.

Some sites may not use charge codes as they will not be linked with a Project; alternatively, either enter a free text line or create a stock item for postage.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.4 Image 1


5.5. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.5 Image 1


5.6. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.6 Image 1


5.7. 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.  When the line has goods received against it or is invoiced, 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.7 Image 1


5.8. 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.  Comment lines do not require approval.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.8 Image 1

Clicking on the Waiting For hyperlink will open a pop-up to show the current approval step and future approval steps.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.8 Image 2


5.9. 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 – users will only be able to see the drilldown if they have been given access to the nominal code.

Nominal codes can be set as overbudget if there is no budget set in Sage.  If a line is over budget, the requisition and the line will be flagged as over budget.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.9 Image 1


5.10. 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.

Comment and Charge lines cannot be linked to a project.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.10 Image 1


5.11. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.11 Image 1

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 – a default delivery address is linked through to a user on their WAP User profile (under the Company Access tab).  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 – 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.  Ensure the analysis codes have been setup as selectable in Sage (POP – POP Utilities – System Setup – POP Settings – Order Entry tab – Order Header Entry – allow amendment of analysis codes and Order Line Entry – allow amendment of analysis codes).

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).


5.12. 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 intended for internal use only; if WAP is linked with Sicon Documents, any attachments added here will post through to Sage and be visible against the PO.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.12 Image 1

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.  The ‘Department’ is 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.  Business units are used to allow other users to have further visibility of orders, for more information please see our section on Business Units and Requisitions.

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.  These notes will not post into Sage.

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.  If WAP is linked with Sicon Documents, any attachments added here will post through to Sage and be visible against the PO.

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, supplier or user.  For more information, please see our section on Order Justifications.


5.13. Approved 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.13 Image 1

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.


5.14. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 5.14 Image 1


6. New Requisition Entry - Nominal Account Code Selection

Where the nominal code will be selected from will be determined by configuration (whether WAP has been linked with Sicon Projects or there is no costing module) and the item being raised (whether it is a free text line or stock item line) and settings within the Requisition module.


6.1. Free Text Line, WAP is not linked with Sicon Projects

6.4. Stock Item Line, WAP is linked with Sicon Projects

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 6.4 Image 1


7. Existing Requisitions

Select ‘Show Existing’ from the 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, attachments or a hyperlink or has been printed or emailed.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7 Image 1


7.1. Requisition Header Status

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.  If an order has 10 lines on where one has been rejected and all others approved, it will show in the Rejected tab until no lines have the Rejected status.  A requisition will not post through to Sage if there is a rejected line.

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 the error and repost orders is usually just given to Administrators or Finance users.  Common reasons for a requisition failing are POP auto numbering in Sage not being on, or if the supplier has been placed on hold within Sage once the requisition has been submitted, lines being entered with a negative value or the project has been closed following the order being submitted.  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.  There is no option to archive all completed orders in the system, it has to be done at an individual user level.  When searching for a requisition, archived requisitions will not appear in the results unless searched for specifically.


7.2. 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.


7.3. Requisition Notifications

When a user submits their requisition for approval they’ll receive notifications on their homepage; these are split out per individual line on the requisition.  Lines may show on different tabs; e.g. if one line had been rejected this would show under the ‘Rejected’ tab but if another line was still awaiting approval, this would show under the ‘Approve’ tab.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.3 Image 1

Low Priority:  as this notification is showing to Rami that the lines have gone to Rosana for approval, it is low priority as there is nothing for Rami to action.

Message Hyperlink:  if Rami was to click on the hyperlink notification, this would open the requisition for him to either view or edit if required.

Dismiss:  this notification can be dismissed (there is nothing for this user to action); Rami would get new notifications if something changed – e.g. Rosana approved and the requisition went to another approver, Rosana approved and the requisition was fully approved or if Rosana was to reject it.

When an approver has a requisition to approve, they’ll receive notifications on their homepage; these are split out per individual line on the requisition.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.3 Image 2

Normal Priority:  as this notification is showing to Rosana that this requisition requires her approval, the priority is normal as there is an action to complete.

Message Hyperlink:  if Rosana was to click on the hyperlink notification, this would open the requisition approval page to allow for the claim to be either approved or rejected.

Dismiss:  this notification cannot be dismissed as it is requiring an action – notifications will be sent until the approver has completed the task (or if a time limit has passed – by default this is set to 14 days.  If after this time the approver has still not approved, the notification will automatically dismiss and they won’t receive any further notifications although they must still approve).

If a user had flagged the requisition as Urgent, this will highlight the notification in red and set the priority as Urgent to both the user who submitted the requisition and the approvers.  Notification emails will be sent automatically rather than waiting for the standard email threads.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.3 Image 3


7.4. Searching for 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.4 Image 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 – note this is just at header level.  If line level information (such as nominal code or project information) this will have to be viewed through either viewing a single requisition or running the requisition reports.


7.5. Searching for Requisitions raised by Colleagues

If a user belongs 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.5 Image 1

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.5 Image 2


7.6. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.6 Image 1


7.7. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.7 Image 1

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.7 Image 2


7.8. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.8 Image 1


7.9. Printing Quotes

Before an order is approved, a quote can be printed; this can be useful if a price is required from a supplier.  It is a User Type permission to be able to print Quotes and quote layouts are configured in Sage Connections.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 7.9 Image 1


8. Approve Requisition

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 menu.


8.1. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 8.1 Image 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 8.1 Image 2


8.2. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 8.2 Image 1

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 8.2 Image 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 two to one.  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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 8.2 Image 3

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 8.2 Image 4


8.3. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 8.3 Image 1


8.4. 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.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 8.4 Image 1

The user who submitted the requisition would get a notification advising them it has been fully approved – the lines will show as Fully Approved and when all lines are fully approved, the order header will show as Completed.

9. Printing and Emails Purchase Orders

Orders can only be printed and emailed once they have been fully approved and a PO number has been generated.  The option to print orders is a User Type permission.


9.1. Emailing Purchase Orders

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.

Some sites may have two PO layouts configured (e.g. for one to be sent with Project information on, one without) so there may be Print Summary and Print Detailed options.  If only one layout has been configured under System Settings, only Print Summary will show.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.1 Image 1

The print PO preview screen is a pop-up so the WAP website must be configured to allow pop-ups.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.1 Image 2

The PO can be saved, 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.1 Image 3

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.  When this is first selected, a pop-up will display that allows the user to default to the selection chosen when emailing future orders.

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.1 Image 4


9.2. Automatically Emailing Purchase Orders

Configure within System Settings to automatically email orders (System Settings cogs – System Settings banner – Requisitions).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.2 Image 1

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.  It is possible to configure an email address to be copied in on all automatic orders; this can be useful to ensure a Procurement team are aware of which orders have been sent out.

This setting is a global setting and not per Sage Company or per Supplier.  Therefore, it is recommended to only be switched on once a site is live, not during testing unless Suppliers are updated in Sage to not have actual supplier email addresses.


9.3. Supplier Contact Email

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).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.3 Image 1

When creating a contact against the supplier account, link the contact through to this role.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.3 Image 2

WAP will then pick up this contact to use for delivery details.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.3 Image 3


9.4. 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.

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.4 Image 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 9.4 Image 2


10. Goods Received

To goods receive an order, click on the Goods Receive option on the menu – the permission to Goods Receive is User Type permission.  As soon as 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 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. Confirm with Goods Received, Confirm as Service/Free Text – as configured in Sage POP).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10 Image 1


10.1. Receiving Goods or Services

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.1 Image 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 User Type 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 Documents is enabled, this document can be viewed in Sage POP by users with a Documents 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.

Project/Project Header:  if WAP has been linked with a Costing module, the Project on the requisition line will show – hover over the tree icon to view the Phase/Stage/Activity (if linked with Sicon Projects).

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 (over receipt can be switched on 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 pop-up 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.  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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.1 Image 2


10.2. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.2 Image 1


10.3. 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.

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.3 Image 1

In the below example, the original quantity received was two but on checking the delivery it was found to actually be one.  The ‘Amended Received’ quantity is changed to 1 and saved; this will then update the PO in Sage and WAP to show the correct quantity.

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.3 Image 2

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.3 Image 3


10.4. 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.  If an order is final receipted, 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 User Type permission.

In the below example the original order was for 16, 12 are being final goods receipted so this will change the order in WAP and Sage to be for 12.  This means that when an invoice is entered for 12, the order will then move to Complete.  If the remaining four 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.

Extra warnings are shown to the user when the final receipt has been selected.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.4 Image 1

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.4 Image 2

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

10.5. 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 User Type permission to Final Receipt.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.5 Image 1

The order can be found in WAP using the search filters and including the option to ‘Show deleted’.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.5 Image 2

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.5 Image 3

In the example below, because the Admin2 user had logged in, delegated as Rami and final receipted, the Admin username shows as the final user to have affected the order.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.5 Image 4

The order in Sage is Completed at zero value – the same status of the order as in WAP.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 10.5 Image 5


11. Call Off / Service Requisitions


11.1. Why use Call Off Orders?

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.

An example of using call off orders would be if purchasing time of an engineer who will then invoice for odd amounts depending on time worked.  Another example may be if purchasing a stand for an exhibition where invoices need to be paid in stages.

If an order is to be set as a Call Off order, all lines on the order will be treated as call off lines – it is not possible to raise a requisition with a mix of call off and standard lines.


11.2. WAP Configuration

Within System Settings cogs – System Settings banner – Requisitions – Functionality Banner.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.2 Image 1

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.


11.3. Call Off Requisition - Entry

If call off orders are switched on, users will see the option to mark an order as a call off order at the requisiton header.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.3 Image 1

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.3 Image 2

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.3 Image 3


11.4. Call Off Requisition - Approval

Once the requisition entry has been completed, it will need to be submitted and approved as standard.  The preconfigured approval routes will be used – there is no option to configure different approval routes if an order is a call-off order.  However, during approval the order is marked as a Call Off order in grids to highlight to the approvers as such.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.4 Image 1

Once fully approved, 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.4 Image 2

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.  This tab will only appear if the Sicon WAP Addon pack has been installed.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.4 Image 3


11.5. 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, £1,246 of a £5,000 order has been received.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.5 Image 1

As with standard orders, once the goods have been received in WAP the quantities will post through to Sage.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.5 Image 2


11.6. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 11.6 Image 1


12. Order Justification


12.1. Why use Order Justification?

These are useful to ensure that for higher value orders users are completing quote requests and finding the best price for an item from suppliers.  Different bands can be setup per Sage Company so depending on the value of the order, the number of justification documents will differ.

Justification explanations and documents are only visible in WAP.


12.2. WAP Configuration

Within System Settings cogs – System Settings banner – Requisitions – Justification, create justification bands.  These are set per Company – it is not possible to create differing bands for suppliers or requesting users.

It is important to ensure when creating bands that they do not overlap (otherwise the document will not know how many documents are required).

In the example below, if a user is raising a requisition up to £5,000, they will not be required to attach a quote, if the order is between £5,000 and £50,000 they must upload one quote and if over £50,000, they must upload three.

If the order is for a supplier in a currency other than base, the order will be converted using Sage currency rates to determine how many justification documents are required.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 12.2 Image 1


12.3. Entering Requisition with Justification

Justification documents are added on a requisition under the Justification tab, Order Justification banner.

Click Add to enter a new attachment, enter details as applicable and update when correct.

The required number of attachments will vary depending on the value of the document.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 12.3 Image 1

Preferred:  tick this slider to confirm if this quote from the supplier is the preferred choice.

Preferred Justification:  enter a reason for why this supplier is preferred.

Quoted Price:  enter the price quoted.

Delivery Days:  confirm the number of days the supplier has quoted.

Supplier:  select from the drop-down list the supplier; suppliers will be pulled through from Sage.

Currency:  the currency will populate from the supplier chosen.

Notes:  enter any additional notes if required.  These notes will not be visible to the supplier but will be shown during approval.

Attachments:  upload (either browse or drop into the box) the quote provided.

If a user tries to submit a requisition where a justification document is required but hasn’t been entered, a warning will show preventing this.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 12.3 Image 2


12.4. Approving Requisition with Justification

During approval, justification documents will show under the Order Justification tab.  Click the arrow to expand each quote and view details and attachments.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 12.4 Image 1


13. Approved Suppliers


13.1. Why would you use Approved Suppliers?

By default, all suppliers entered into the Sage Purchase Ledger will be visible in WAP for users to select when raising requisitions.  Some sites will require however only certain suppliers to be visible so will use analysis codes against suppliers to group them together and restrict which ones will show.  Some sites may go a step further and link supplier groups to users to provide additional control over the visible suppliers.


13.2. Sage Configuration

Create an analysis code called ‘PRS’ in Sage (Accounting System Manager – Settings – Maintain Analysis Codes) with the appropriate supplier groups as values.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.2 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.2 Image 2

Each Sage 200 Supplier account can then be linked with a specific PRS analysis code.  If the supplier should not appear in the list available when entering a requisition in WAP, do not select a code from the drop-down box but instead leave it blank.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.2 Image 3


13.3. WAP Configuration

Within WAP when raising a new requisition, the supplier can then be selected based on the Approved Suppliers or by Approved Suppliers category.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.3 Image 1

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.3 Image 2

If required, Approved Suppliers can be enforced by enabling or disabling the Supplier Filter options within WAP System Settings banner – Requisitions (i.e. if users should only be able to select Approved Suppliers, remove the All Suppliers option).

Configure this under System Settings cogs – System Settings banner – Requisitions – Display banner.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.3 Image 3


13.4. Restricting Approved Suppliers per user

If users are to be linked with certain supplier groups so can only raise requisitions against specific suppliers, enable within System Settings – Requisitions – Display, configure to enable supplier code filters.

If this is enabled, all users will need to be allocated either certain supplier categories or given access to all supplier categories.  If a user is created and cannot see any suppliers when they try and raise a requisition, ensure they have been allocated the correct supplier categories.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.4 Image 1

Once enabled, configure against the correct User Type the permission to be able to maintain user supplier filters.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.4 Image 2

Once the Administrator has the User Type permission configured, manage user supplier allocation under User Setup banner – Supplier Filter Codes.

Select the User, the database and link the user with the correct supplier filters.  If the user should have access to all, click the Access All slider.  If this isn’t ticked or the user has no supplier categories linked, they won’t be able to pick a supplier when entering a requisition.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.4 Image 3

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.4 Image 4

When the user enters a requisition, they will only be able to select from suppliers within categories assigned to them.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 13.4 Image 5


14. Internal Purchase Orders


14.1. Why use Internal Purchase Orders?

There are three ways to create internal orders in WAP – internal orders are ones that have been raised and approved within WAP but will not post into Sage as a Purchase Order.

  1. By marking the Supplier in Sage as an ‘Internal’ supplier.  Please see below for further information on setting up these analysis codes.
  2. Alternatively, if the site is not linked with Sage Commercials (i.e. does not use Sage Purchase Order Processing to post orders into), any orders raised and approved in WAP will remain within WAP without suppliers needing to be marked as internal suppliers.

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 Help and User Guide – Linking an Expense Claim to a Requisition


14.2. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.2 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.2 Image 2

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.2 Image 3


14.3. WAP Configuration

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.3 Image 1


14.4. Entering Requisitions in WAP

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.4 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.4 Image 2

Complete requisition entry and submit for approval.  Internal orders will follow the same pre-configured requisition approval route.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.4 Image 3


14.5. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.5 Image 1


14.6. Goods Receiving Internal Orders

When goods receiving, make sure the filtering is ticked to show internal orders.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 14.6 Image 1


15. Warehouse Nominal Code Overrides


15.1. Why would you use nominal code overrides?

If for example users are to be purchasing stock across different warehouses and the nominal cost centre will vary depending on warehouse chosen, this functionality can be setup.

In this example we’re going to be linking the London and Manchester warehouses with the corresponding Cost Centres.


15.2. Sage Configuration

Ensure the stock item is linked with the correct Warehouses.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.2 Image 1

Ensure the stock item is linked with the correct nominal code.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.2 Image 2

Ensure the corresponding nominal combinations exist (so in this example the code and department will remain as above, but the Cost Centre will change in WAP depending on the Warehouse – so long as the combination exists in the Nominal Ledger).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.2 Image 3


15.3. WAP Warehouse Nominal Override Configuration

Under System Settings cogs – System Settings banner – Requisitions – Functionality banner, switch on to use Warehouse Nominal Overrides.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.3 Image 1

Once configured, under System Settings cogs – System Setup banner – Warehouse Nominal Overrides, edit each applicable warehouse, link through the cost centre (and department override if needed) and tick to override the cost centre (and department if needed).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.3 Image 2

Ensure changes are updated at line level and then saved at the bottom of the page before navigating away.


15.4. WAP Restricting User to Warehouses Configuration

An extra step, if required, is to link warehouses to users.  This step is not mandatory for the nominal override based on the warehouses, although is required if users should only be able to select certain warehouses.

Configure under System Settings cogs – System Settings banner – Miscellaneous – Functionality banner – enable user warehouse allocation.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.4 Image 1

Once switched on, under System Settings cogs – User Setup banner – Warehouses, select the user from the top drop-down box and link with the warehouses they should see.  Make sure to add the warehouse to the user before moving away.

In this example, Rami is being linked with the London warehouse while Rodriguez has been linked with the Manchester warehouse.

There is a wizard option to link a warehouse to multiple users which can speed up allocation.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.4 Image 2


15.5. Entering Requisitions in WAP

When the user (Rami) enters a stock line on a requisition, they will only see the warehouses linked with them, rather than all warehouses linked with the stock item (if warehouses have been linked with users – above step).

As the user only has access to one warehouse, this will default.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.5 Image 1

The nominal code and department will be pulled from the stock item while the cost centre will be determined from the warehouse (this will only happen if the nominal combination exists in Sage).  The nominal code will change when the line is saved – either edit the line or click on the Authorisation tab to check the coding is correct.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.5 Image 2

If another user linked with another warehouse (Rodriguez) was to enter a requisition for the same stock item, the cost centre will be different.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 15.5 Image 3


16. Importing Requisitions


16.1. Why would you import a requisition?

The ability to import a requisition can be really helpful if requisitions with tens of lines are being created regularly or if orders are being raised frequently that are either the same or very similar and the option to copy orders is not appropriate.


16.2. WAP Configuration

It is a User Type permission to be able to import requisitions so would need to be allocated to users accordingly (System Settings banner – User Setup banner – User Types).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 16.2 Image 1


16.3. Importing a Requisition

Follow the top left menu to Requisition – Import.  The first time a user goes to import, a template will need to be generated.  It is advised to keep a record of a template that has then been used to allow for quick and easy editing and uploading following the first successful upload.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 16.3 Image 1

On the file generated, complete as per help text in the file.    In the example below, just one free text line is being lined with the supplier DIR002 although it is possible to import multiple requisitions per import.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 16.3 Image 2

Once file is completed, browse and validate in WAP.  Once the ‘file is valid’ message has been returned, the file can be imported.  Select whether the requisition(s) created should be submitted for approval – if not submitted for approval, the requisition will stay in the New tab for the user to amend (e.g. if supporting documentation is to be added) before submitting for approval.

If checking budgets in WAP when a requisition is submitted, users will need to manually check and submit requisitions deemed over-budget.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 16.3 Image 3

Once the file has been imported, a requisition ID number will be shown.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 16.3 Image 4

The requisition will then show under Existing Requisitions in the appropriate tab.  If submitted, the standard pre-configured approval route will be used.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 16.3 Image 5


17. Templates (to be used with Stock in Sage)


17.1. Why use Templates?

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.  Users are given permissions with templates under User Type settings; if a user has permission to create or amend templates, a menu option will show for ‘Templates’.  Any templates previously created will show here and can be edited, or new templates can be created.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.1 Image 1


17.2. Creating New Templates

It is a User Type permission to be able to import requisitions so would need to be allocated to users accordingly (System Settings banner – User Setup banner – User Types).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.2 Image 1

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.2 Image 2

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

Default Warehouse:  pick the correct Warehouse from the drop-down list.

Delivery Date:  if the template is to be generated, enter the required header delivery date.

Description:  enter a description for this template; users will see this to enable them to pick the correct template.

Add Stock Item:  click to add individual stock items to the template; once the stock item has been added, enter the quantities, amend the price if not correct, choose the nominal code and save.  Additional stock items can be added as needed.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.2 Image 3

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.

Click on any of the hyperlinks to change as required.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.2 Image 4

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.2 Image 5

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 and so will appear on the New tab allowing edits to 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.


17.3. 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.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.3 Image 1

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.3 Image 2

Users are only able to edit a template if they have permission to amend templates; if they don’t have this permission they will not see the edit options.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.3 Image 3

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.3 Image 4


17.4. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.4 Image 1

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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 17.4 Image 2

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.

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.


18. Business Units and Requisitions


18.1. Why use Business Units with Requisitions?

Business units can be created to match an organisation’s departments or sections and used to group users together.  Users can belong to multiple business units if required and can be given permission to run reports or view documents based on business units.

With requisitions, users within a business unit have visibility of each other’s orders to allow for enquired to be made on what has been ordered, emailing of approved orders to suppliers or allow for goods to be received.


18.2. Linking users with Business Units

Business units are created (System Settings cogs – User Setup banner – Business Units) and users can be linked here – multiple users can be moved across using Shift or Control keys.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 18.2 Image 1

Alternatively, on a user’s profile under the Business Units tab, units can be linked with a user and if a user is to be linked with multiple units, one set as the default.  When raising a requisition, the default business unit will be set but users can select another if applicable.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 18.2 Image 2

When initially setting the WAP system up, business units can be imported.


18.3. Entering requisitions with Business Unit

When entering a requisition, the user’s default business unit will be shown under the Justification tab.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 18.3 Image 1

If a user has more than one business unit, the default will be shown but users can change from the drop-down list.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 18.3 Image 2

If a user has been linked with a business unit after requisitions have already been raised and approved, these requisitions won’t be linked with a business unit retrospectively.

A requisition can only be linked with one business unit; if lines are to be linked with different units, separate requisitions would need to be raised.


18.4. Viewing requisitions with Business Unit

By default, when a user views their existing requisitions, they’ll be shown their own orders but either using the Quick Links or Search functionality can view orders raised by their business unit.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 18.4 Image 1

When either of these options are used, the requisitions that will show will be all orders raised by other users within their business unit.  However, if a requisition was marked as confidential, it will not show.  Users can then scan down the flag column to see if there are any approved orders that have not been emailed to the supplier and need sending on behalf of someone in their team.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 18.4 Image 2


18.5. Goods Receiving for Business Unit

When goods receiving the user will be able to change the ‘Raised By’ option to then show orders raised by someone else in their business unit that have not been fully goods received.  The option to show either My orders, My Business Unit, My Delegate or All Users is remembered so the next time the user access the Goods Received screen, the last chosen option will show.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 18.5 Image 1


19. Requisitions from Sicon MRP


19.1. Why use WAP with MRP?

If using Sicon Manufacturing and running MRP, it is possible for the suggested purchase orders to be created as requisitions in WAP which will require approval before becoming a purchase order.  Some sites will require this to have more control over what is ordered.


19.2. WAP Configuration

Within System Settings cogs – System Settings banner – Requisitions – Functionality banner – switch on to link with MRP.  The WAP service should be restarted following any changes to this setting.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 19.2 Image 1


19.3. Sage Configuration

Sicon Material and Resource Planning must be installed; by default, the option to create WAP Requisitions will show when running MRP along with the option to create Purchase Orders in Sage.  If the site should only have the option to create requisitions in WAP, enable within the MRP Settings.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 19.3 Image 1


19.4. Running MRP in Sage

Once MRP has been run in Sage and the results produced, the option to create requisitions can be chosen.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 19.4 Image 1

Once created, it is possible in MRP to view the purchase requisitions in WAP and see whether the requisition has been approved and at line level, who the requisition is awaiting approval from.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 19.4 Image 2


19.5. MRP Requisition in WAP

Once created in Sage, the requisition will be in WAP under the Submitted tab as awaiting approval.  It will be ticked as a MRP order (this will also show if the Urgent Exclamation point is hovered over) and the post it note icon will show the reason for creation from MRP.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 19.5 Image 1

The requested by user is the ‘Admin Account’; this is by default and cannot be changed.  There is no link between the user that ran MRP and the user who requested the requisition in WAP.

A new tab will also show if the requisition is edited –

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 19.5 Image 2

During approval, the order is flagged as an MRP order and the Notes will show the creation reason.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 19.5 Image 3


20. Requisition with Nominal Budget Examples

In this example, we will look at the nominal budget set in Sage and show how WAP reads this depending on what settings have been configured in WAP.


20.1. Sage Nominal Budget Configuration

In Sage, the budget for this account has been set as 6,000,000 which gives a monthly budget of 500,000:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 20.1 Image 1

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 20.1 Image 2

In the example above, many transactions have already occurred, so the current YTD actual is 5,017,520.39.


20.2. WAP Budget Configuration

In WAP – System Settings Cogs – System Settings Banner – Budgets – Functionality banner, the below budget settings have been configured so that Monthly, YTD and Annual budgets will all be checked during submission (there’s no specific setting for Annual, these are always checked if budget checking is enabled):

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 20.2 Image 1


20.3. Example 1 - Requisition checking Nominal Budget

In the example we are going to work through, it’s currently Period 10.  When a user enters a requisition against this nominal during that period, they will see a picture of the Monthly, YTD and Annual Budget for that period.  By turning on the setting to ‘Check Nominal Budgets during submission’, an additional Budget tab is displayed with a summary of whether the item is within budget or not:

Current Month, YTD and Annual Budget summary

In the bottom half of the WAP screen, more specific detail about each budget is displayed, depending on what settings have been set:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 20.3 Image 9

The value within the pending WAP document columns includes all orders in WAP that are not completed, deleted, rejected or sent to Sage. It will also include approved orders that haven’t posted to Sage (e.g. orders that have failed to post or haven’t posted yet).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 20.3 Image 10

Note, the annual budget will always be shown if budgets are being checked in WAP, there is no setting to ignore this.

Remaining Budget Summary

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 20.3 Image 11

Value 11: Remaining Monthly budget – actual/pending budget spend.  E.g. 500,000 – (51,800.76 + 9,943.76 + 150) = 438,105.48

Value 12: Remaining YTD budget – actual/pending budget spend.  E.g. 5,000,000 – (1,869,528.72 + 9,943.76 + 150) = 3,120,377.52

Value 13: Remaining Annual budget – actual/pending budget spend.  E.g. 6,000,000 – (5,017,520.39 + 9,943.76 + 150) = 972,385.85


21. Requisition with Project Budget Examples

In these examples we will work with budgets against Sicon Projects.


21.1. Sicon Projects Budget Configuration

In Sage, a budget has been configured against the project and when viewed By Project Header looks like this:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.1 Image 1

These are further broken down into the phases, stages and activities across the project, which can be seen in detail by selecting the ‘By Phases & Stages’ view and expanding the individual lines as required:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.1 Image 2

Within Sicon Projects, the system allows maintenance of budgets by project, with budgets being split at a project header level.  Further information on Project budget setting is available in the Projects Help and User Guide.


21.2. WAP Budget Configuration

Once the budget is set up in Projects, within WAP, System Settings cogs > System Settings Banner > Budgets > Functionality banner, project budgets can be checked during submission, during approval or both:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.2 Image 1

In the example, both settings will be applied.


21.3. Example 1 – within budget, one activity within the Project Header

Taking the example of Overheads (Phase) – Office Costs (Stage) – and Office Costs (Activity), and Sundry (Project Header), a 5,000 budget has been set:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.3 Image 1

In WAP, costs are entered against this combination in WAP on a requisition:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.3 Image 2

Navigating to the Budget tab within WAP shows the user a snapshot of whether the line is in budget or not:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.3 Image 3

In the example above, because this is within budget, it is showing the overall Sundry budget here, minus the net value of the requisition (5000 – 3000):

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.3 Image 4

By clicking on the link in WAP, the specific budget levels can be viewed:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.3 Image 5

At the top of this pop-up, WAP displays the Project, Phase, Stage, Activity and Project Header that the line refers to.

In the bottom half of the pop-up, each relevant budget is listed out:

Job: overall project budget

Phase: The phase budget this line applies to

Stage: The stage budget this line applies to (within this phase)

Activity: The activity budget this line applies to

Job Header: The project header budget this line applies to

The value within the WAP Items column includes all orders in WAP that are not completed, deleted, rejected or sent to Sage. It will also include approved orders that haven’t posted to Sage (e.g. orders that have failed to post or haven’t posted yet).


21.4. Example 2 - within budget, multiple activities within the Project Header

Taking the example of Overheads (Phase) – Software (Stage) – Software (Activity), and Material (Project Header), a 7,000 budget has been set at this level:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.4 Image 1

However, as the Material header also has budgets set in other stages, these are collated to give an overall Header budget of 19,000:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.4 Image 2

In WAP, costs are entered against this combination in WAP on a requisition:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.4 Image 3

Navigating to the Budget tab within WAP shows the user a snapshot of whether the line is in budget or not:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.4 Image 4

In the example above, because this is within budget, it is showing the collated Material Header budget here, minus the net value of the requisition (19,000 – 5,500):

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.4 Image 5

By clicking on the link in WAP, the specific budget levels can be viewed:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.4 Image 6

At the top of this pop-up, WAP displays the Project, Phase, Stage, Activity and Project Header that the line refers to.

In the bottom half of the pop-up, each relevant budget is listed out:

Job: overall project budget

Phase: The phase budget this line applies to

Stage: The stage budget this line applies to (within this phase)

Activity: The activity budget this line applies to

Job Header: The project header budget this line applies to

The value within the WAP Items column includes all orders in WAP that are not completed, deleted, rejected or sent to Sage. It will also include approved orders that haven’t posted to Sage (e.g. orders that have failed to post or haven’t posted yet).


21.5. Example 3 - over budget, only one activity within the Project Header

Taking the example of Overheads (Phase) – Office Costs (Stage) – and Office Costs (Activity), and Sundry (Project Header), a 5,000 budget has been set:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.5 Image 1

In WAP, costs are entered against this combination in WAP on a requisition:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.5 Image 2

Navigating to the Budget tab within WAP shows the user a snapshot of whether the line is in budget or not.  In the example here, because this is outside of budget, the view changes to show what budget has been exceeded.  WAP shows the relevant exceeded Sundry budget, minus the net value of the requisition (5000 – 5001):

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.5 Image 3

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.5 Image 4

By clicking on the link in WAP, the specific budget levels can be viewed, and the over budget area is highlighted:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.5 Image 5

At the top of this pop-up, WAP displays the Project, Phase, Stage, Activity and Project Header that the line refers to.

In the bottom half of the pop-up, each relevant budget is listed out and the over budget line highlighted:

Job: overall project budget

Phase: The phase budget this line applies to

Stage: The stage budget this line applies to (within this phase)

Activity: The activity budget this line applies to

Job Header: The project header budget this line applies to

The value within the WAP Items column includes all orders in WAP that are not completed, deleted, rejected or sent to Sage. It will also include approved orders that haven’t posted to Sage (e.g. orders that have failed to post or haven’t posted yet).


21.6. Example 4 - over budget, multiple activities within the Project Header

Taking the example of Overheads (Phase) – Software (Stage) – Software (Activity), and Material (Project Header), a 7,000 budget has been set at this level:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.6 Image 1

However, as the Material header also has budgets set in other stages, these are collated to give an overall Header budget of 19,000:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.6 Image 2

In WAP, costs are entered against this combination in WAP on a requisition:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.6 Image 3

Navigating to the Budget tab within WAP shows the user a snapshot of whether the line is in budget or not.  In the example here, because this is outside of budget, the view changes to show what budget has been exceeded.  WAP shows the relevant exceeded Sundry budget, minus the net value of the requisition (7000 – 7001):

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.6 Image 4

By clicking on the link in WAP, the specific budget levels can be viewed, and the over budget area is highlighted:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 21.6 Image 5

At the top of this pop-up, WAP displays the Project, Phase, Stage, Activity and Project Header that the line refers to.

In the bottom half of the pop-up, each relevant budget is listed out:

Job: overall project budget

Phase: The phase budget this line applies to

The value within the WAP Items column includes all orders in WAP that are not completed, deleted, rejected or sent to Sage. It will also include approved orders that haven’t posted to Sage (e.g. orders that have failed to post or haven’t posted yet).


22. Reports

There are five reports within the Requisition module, which are accessible based on User Type permissions.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 22 Image 1

All reports can be exported to Excel or PDF and can be adapted either by dragging column headers to change the order or group data by a particular header.  For additional options or to export, right click on the report header or report lines.  Reports are cookie based so to allow for this customisation, ensure the browser settings allow cookies from the WAP website.  Customised columns may return to the standard configuration following a WAP or browser upgrade as cookies may be cleared.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 22 Image 2

Depending on User Type and User configuration, users will be able to see either information relating to their orders, their delegate or business unit orders or all orders on the system.  Use the database filter and if available, date range options to filter data as required.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 22 Image 3


22.1. All Order Lines Report

This report will show a breakdown of all requisitions with their line detail, quantities, approval status and approval history.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 22.1 Image 1


22.2. Goods Received Not Invoiced Report

This report will show orders which have been goods received but not yet invoiced against.  Quantities requiring invoicing will be shown against each line as well as quantity and value to accrue.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 22.2 Image 1


22.3. Outstanding Orders Report

This report will show orders which have not yet been fully goods received or invoiced.  Quantities outstanding as well as value and quantity to accrue will be listed against each line.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 22.3 Image 1


22.4. Goods Received History Report

This report will show the history of who received, when, and the exact quantities on orders within the selected criteria, in addition to the original quantity ordered.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 22.4 Image 1


22.5. Good Invoiced and Received

This report will show PO invoices recorded in Sage and the associated receipt history.  This report could be used to identify items that have been invoiced but not yet received (as opposed to items received but not yet invoiced).  The report also highlights items that have been ‘over invoiced’ and can be filtered specifically by this.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 22.5 Image 1


23. 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.

Project Requisitions can be used even if no costing module is configured with WAP.  If WAP is linked with a costing module (either Sicon Projects or Sage Project Accounting), a project can be picked on the project requisition line.


23.1. Project Requisition or Requisition

If users are unsure whether to proceed with a Project Requisition or a Requisition, the below overview outlines the process WAP follows between the two:

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.1 Image 1


23.2. 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. For more information please see our WAP Approval Routes Help and User Guide.


23.3. Project Requisition User Type Permissions

Permissions for whether a user is able to submit, approve or view project requisitions are set at a User Type level, under the Project Requisition tab.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.3 Image 1

Submit Project Requisitions:  the ability to submit a project requisition.

Set Supplier on new Project Requisitions:  whether a user is able to choose a supplier when entering a project requisition.

View all Project Requisitions:  the ability to view all project requisitions entered by all users in the system.

Approve Project Requisitions:  the ability to approve project requisitions.  If a user does not have this permission, they cannot be selected when building an approval route.

View Approval comments on Project Requisitions:  the ability to view any comments made during the approval process.

Enter Approval comments on Project Requisitions:  the ability to enter comments during the approval process.

View Project Requisition Report:  the ability to run a report on project requisitions.

System Setting Overrides

Enable ‘Free Text’ line entry:  the default from the system settings will be configured but if this is to be overridden at a User Type level, can show here (e.g. if by default no users should be able to enter a free text line it will be off, but could be allowed for a particular group of users).

Enable Item Description Amendment:  the default from the system settings will be configured but if this is to be overridden at a User Type level, can show here (e.g. if by default no users should be able to override an item description it will be off, but could be allowed for a particular group of users).


23.4. Project Requisition User Approval Values

If a user is to be approving a project requisition, they must be given an approval value on their user profile.  Members of the Procurement Team should be given unlimited approval value to ensure that all project requisitions can be fully approved.

This approval is separate to requisition approval value; i.e. a procurement team member may approve project requisitions but not requisitions.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.4 Image 1


23.5. New Project Requisition

Select the option to add a new project requisition under the Project Requisition menu option.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.5 Image 1

Company:  if the user has access to more than one company, select the correct Sage Company from the drop-down list.  If the user only has access to one company, this will be defaulted, greyed out and cannot be changed.

Document Date:  by default, the current date is selected; a future date can be added but it is not possible to back date a project requisition.

Urgent:  if the project requisition is urgent, tick the box and enter the reason.  Once submitted, an email is sent to the approvers immediately.  The urgent reason will appear on the Approval History tab and be visible to approvers.

Save & Submit:  click to send the project requisition for approval.

Close:  click to close without saving changes.

Print:  click to open a pop-up to allow the project requisition to be printed.  This would not be sent to a supplier but could be emailed to another WAP user for visibility.


23.6. Adding a Stock Item Line

Click to add a stock item line; if stock is not being used, this option can be hidden.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.6 Image 1

Select a product group, stock item and warehouse from the drop-down options available.  If a costing module has been configured, a Sicon Project and Sicon Project Header will need to be selected which would determine the nominal code.  If no costing module has been configured, a nominal code must be selected.

A unit price can be added if known but can be left blank if not but a quantity would need to be added.  The tax code will be pulled through from Sage 200 configuration and the delivery date will be based on the document date, although these can both be overridden.

If the user has permission to do so they can select a supplier, or this is left blank for the approvers to select.  To add more lines, click either the Stock or Free Text Line option.

Notes and Attachments can be added against each line by clicking the Post It Note or the Paper Clip Attachment icons.


23.7. Adding a Free Text Line

Click to add a free text line.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.7 Image 1

A unit price can be added if known but can be left blank if not but a quantity would need to be added.  The tax code will be pulled through from Sage 200 configuration and the delivery date will based on the document date, although these can both be overridden.

If the user has permission to do so they can select a supplier, or this is left blank for the approvers to select.  To add more lines, click either the Stock or Free Text Line option.

Notes and Attachments can be added against each line by clicking the Post It Note or the Paper Clip Attachment icons.


23.8. Delivery and Invoicing Tab

This tab will show information on delivery and invoice addresses and Sage analysis codes.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.8 Image 1

Deliver To:  this address must be populated before lines can be added to a project requisition – 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.

Invoice To:  this address must be populated before lines can be added to a project requisition – 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.

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


23.9. Justification Tab

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.9 Image 1

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).

Business Unit:  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 project requisition summary grid tables and approval grid page.

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

Approver Comments:  if comments have been made during approval, these will show here.


23.10. Approval History Tab

This tab will start to be populated once the requisition has been submitted and starts through the approval process.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.1o Image 1

Filter by Item:  by default, all project 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 project requisition as urgent, the reason given will be displayed here.


23.11. Existing Project Requisition

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.11 Image 1

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

Submitted:  project requisitions that have been submitted and are awaiting approval.  By hovering over the blue information icon, the lines will display and show who they are awaiting approval from.

Approved:  once a project requisition has been fully approved and turned into a requisition, it will move though to this tab.

Other tabs are not used with Project Requisitions.


23.12. View Project Requisitions

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

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

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.12 Image 1

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

Quick Links:  either click ‘Refresh (with search)’ to update the grid and retrieve the most recent status of project requisitions or other specific links to show particular project requisitions.  All project requisitions within the current grid can also be exported to Excel.


23.13. Edit Project Requisition

By clicking Edit on an existing project requisition, this will open up to allow for viewing of requisition lines, delivery information, justification documents etc.  A user is able to edit and make changes to a project requisition until it is approved; any changes would need to be resubmitted for approval.  Once the project requisition has been fully approved, the user is unable to make any amendments.


23.14. Delete Project Requisition

If a user has permission to delete a requisition, they will be able to delete a project requisition once it has been saved.  If they do not have permission, they will see a message advising this if the delete button is clicked.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.14 Image 1


23.15. Approve Project Requisition

To approve a project requisition, either click on a hyperlink notification on the user’s WAP homepage, or navigate to the Approve Project Requisitions page from the menu.   All project requisitions awaiting the user to approve will be listed; click on the arrow on the left to expand and view the project requisition line details.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 23.15 Image 1

Lines:  this tab will show all lines awaiting approval from the user with information on line details, quantities, and nominal and Sicon Project.  Against each line a unit price and supplier must be allocated before the project requisition line can be approved.  In the example above, only line 1 will have a requisition created once approved.  This is to allow for multiple purchase orders to be raised from one project requisition as and when needed.  The View Order Details will take the approver through to the main project requisition page to view the project requisition fully or to add any Approver Comments under the Justification tab.

Individual or all lines can be rejected; a reason must be entered and the project requisition will return to the user who initially created to either edit and resubmit or delete if not required.

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

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

Budgets:  if configured, budget information can be viewed here showing further information on whether the nominal or Sicon Project is within or over budget.

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

On Hold Reason:  if the project requisition is to be put on hold, enter a reason in the box and click Hold.  It is possible to notify other users that the project requisition is on hold – it might be that the user who submitted the project requisition should be informed, or other members of the Procurement Team.

Once the project requisition has been completed and approved, it will move to become an existing requisition submitted by the same user that submitted the project requisition.  For the user who submitted the project requisition, this will show under the Approved tab under Existing Project Requisitions and they will also see either one or multiple Requisitions under the Submitted tab; depending on whether there was one or multiple suppliers allocated during 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.

If the user creating the project requisition has a requisition self-approval value, this will be considered when the requisition is created.

24. Planned Purchases


24.1. Why use Planned Purchases?

With Planned Purchases a list of items (both stock items and free text) can be entered that are expected to be purchased for a Sicon Project, along with a supplier and price, if known.  These planned purchases can then be turned into either a Project Requisition (for a Procurement team to enter supplier and prices) or a Requisition (if supplier and price are known) which once fully approved, will become a PO.  Planned purchases that have been allocated to a Sicon Project will show in the applicable budgets tab.

Planned Purchases can only be used if WAP is linked with Projects and the Sicon Web API has been configured (System Settings cogs – System Settings banner – Miscellaneous – Functionality).

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 24.1 Image 1


24.2. Planned Purchases Import

Within this screen users can generate a template and then import planned purchases.  Once a template has been created, enter the correct details, see example below.  In the Line Type column, enter either 0 for a stock item or 1 for a free text line.  If the user knows suppliers to use or prices for an item, these can be entered on the import.

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 24.2 Image 1

25.2. General Tab - Functionality Banner

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 25.2 Image 1

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 25.2 Image 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.

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.

Include Stock Item description in Search filter:  tick this option to view the stock item description when searching for an item.

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.

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.

Enable 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 users are prevented, 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 (Requisitions):  if configured, when entering a stock line on a requisition, the nominal code will be populated from the stock item selected, rather than the user having to select manually.

Select Stock Item Default Nominal Account when a Stock Item has been selected (Project Requisitions):  if configured, when entering a stock line on a project requisition, 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 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 standard pricing methods for miscellaneous product group 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.

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.  This prefix will only show in WAP, it will not post into Sage POP.

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 Sicon 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.

Load default tax rate on new orders:  if enabled, the default tax rate will be pulled through from how the company has been configured in Sage PL.  If disabled, users will need to select the appropriate tax rate for that line on the requisition.

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.

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(s) 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.

Automatic printing – Email address to copy automatic requisition prints to:  if sending a PO once the requisition has been fully approved, a copy email can be sent to an email address if required.  For example, it might be that a ‘procurement@companyname.co.uk’ address should have visibility of all POs sent to suppliers.


25.3. General Tab - Goods Received Banner

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 25.3 Image 1

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.

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.


25.4. General Tab - Order Templates Banner

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 25.4 Image 1

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.

25.6. General Tab - Spare Fields Banner

Sicon WAP Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 25.6 Image 1

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.


25.7. 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 Purchase Requisitions Help and User Guide - Requisition HUG Section 25.7 Image 1

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 2 will be populated with the WAP Requisitioner Name.
