Ability to edit a location instead of creating a new one
We are aware that this is a fulfillment configuration, but it is one which causes problems with acquisitions.
We would like the ability to 'edit' existing location codes that would automatically update everything within those locations to the new location, including holdings, items, and PO lines...rather than having to create new locations and move things before deleting the old location.
This would eliminate the problems with "change physical items" jobs that don't change locations for things with no items attached (common with serials).
This would also eliminate the problem of POs becoming unlinked from holdings when a location is changed. For example, we recently changed a location name that had many standing orders for serials, and thus open POs. Now when we try to receive something, the PO has to be updated every time because a location is mandatory and the old location was deleted thus the PO has no location associated with it. There are hundreds of these, possibly thousands.
It would also be helpful if the "Change PO line information" job included space for changing the location.

It might also be nice if PO lines just automatically inherited the location of whatever holding they are attached to, so that if one gets updated the PO is updated as well.
