Batch deleting PO's
There is currently no system job to delete PO's. These have to be done manually using the Acquisitions>Purchase Order>Delete PO function individually in ALMA.
We have 1000's of old orders migrated from our legacy system that are no longer required. We also now only keep 7 years worth of orders in line with current financial practice and so would like to be able to set a job to batch delete at rollover into the new fiscal period.

We are currently struggling with some duplicate orders that have come in accidentally from a vendor system and we would also like this functionality.

Our records retention schedules require us to delete closed orders and related invoices after 6 years. I agree that the ability to delete closed/cancelled orders and any related invoices in batch would be very helpful!

This would have been extremely helpful to us when we needed to remove over 1000 empty POs that were accidentally created through a job. We had to manually remove all of them. This will also be helpful at the end of our retention period for acquisitions data (7 years) to be able to clean up old POs no longer needed.

This is a great idea - I see it's nearly at 100 votes now, so hope it is considered soon.
