KFS handles two kinds of receiving documentsóbulk and line item.
The Bulk Receiving document allows a central receiving organization or a departmental user to record the receipt of goods. It is used to record the number of cartons received, to allow you to add notes (regarding damage to cartons, etc.) and print a PDF receiving ticket. The document is simply a recording tool; it has no impact on line item receiving, the purchase order or payment request. It is not a substitute for line item receiving.
The Bulk Receiving document may be initiated against a Purchase Order document; however, a purchase order is not required. This flexibility gives the receiving group the option to create these documents without a purchase order number (i.e., for credit card orders).
