EProcurement: Add Multiple Lines to a Requisition

The recent update to the EProcurement module allows agencies to add multiple distribution lines more easily to a requisition. Refer to the quick reference guides on the EProcurement/Requisitions page to get more details.

On a new requisition

Use Accounting Tag templates to add distribution lines in creating a new requisition. You can also use these tags on updating a requisition as desired.  There are four templates starting with “REQ” that are available for adding multiple distributions. Follow the steps for creating a requisition by Document Type.

Update an existing requisition

Use the Mass Change process to change or add distribution lines. The Mass Change process allows you to make changes to multiple distribution lines using one process. Review the Edit Requisition reference guide for the full steps on using the Mass Change process.

Help Desk Hot Topics

Help Desk Hot Topics feature Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) answered by the SWIFT Help Desk. Use these as a friendly reminder of a process or as an opportunity to learn something new! 

Q. What does a "Blocked" Status mean in the Process Monitor?

A. SWIFT users may occasionally see that a process they have submitted to run is in Blocked status. Blocked status means that SWIFT is temporarily preventing the job from running, holding it until another job instance finishes. Blocked process instances are rare, and only affect a small handful of jobs that are limited to a specific number of concurrent instances. Process instances in Blocked status will begin processing once other running instances finish. No action is required by the user or SWIFT support staff. SWIFT users should not submit duplicate jobs when this occurs to avoid creating a larger backlog. If you are concerned about a specific process instance, please contact the SWIFT Help Desk for support.
