    Our buyers are manually issuing some of their PO's via Po20 for emailed POs. I want to ensure that my Terms and Conditions link is on all PO's. According to INFOR I cannot force a comment to a PO that is not run thru PO120. so I am trying to figure out how to get the comment on the PO without having to rely on the buyer to make an extra step.  I read in another thread that we may be able to set up multiple directories per buyer - and then allowed the PO job for each buyer to run in hourly increments - they could just release the PO and not issue them.  If they would agree to that it may solve my issue.  I have other PO120 jobs running for my EDI and and Bill Only vendors.  So provided they won't be picked up in my existing jobs the next run of the PO120 for that buyer would pick up their PO's and with the header on them.   

    1. Can we really do multiple out directires per buyer for faxes/emails?
    2. Any drawbacks noticable in my logic?
    3. Any suggetions on alternate ways of ahceiving this?

    We are moving to cloudsuite hopefully in the next 18 months so this is only a temporary solution.  I was told we could customize or PO layout in cloudsuite so this link would become a part of our PO and not a comment code.

    1. Yes, absolutely. You have to build the directories in the lsf/law/prod10/fax(email)/out/ directory and on the fax integrator. However you don't need to build out separate directories just to add the T&C comment. We do this currently with email POs but just so each PO looks like it was sent buy the buyer, not a generic address. Fax POs just go the fax/out directory. To add a comment you just add it to the PO120 job and it will be added to each fax/email PO at the header. I have the PO120 job for Fax/Email POs scheduled to run every hour.
    2. As long as the buyers don't manually issue the PO the solution will work.
    3. You could use 3rd party software like MHC to create your POs where you could hard code the T&C onto each document.
