Direct Delivery PO mode of delivery from SO

    ​We have direct delivery as an option for certain items and we want the sales order to determine mode of delivery but it is not.  Whatever we have on the sales order is NOT what is posting on the generated purchase order.  The purchase order is generated with the vendor default mode of delivery, or is blank when the vendor defaults are blank.  This would make sense on most purchase orders, but if the vendor gives us the option for ground or expedite, it means manually editing any PO that the customer chose to expedite.  I cannot find a parameter setting or anything that gives an option to have the delivery mode come from the SO, does anyone have insight on this?  We are on AX2012R3.  Thank you kindly!

    We are on D365 FO and have run into the same issue with direct delivery purchase order mode of delivery defaulting from the vendor.  We have direct delivery vendors that ship some product parcel and some product freight so setting it based on the vendor is not valid.  We would like to have the mode of delivery on the DD PO default from the sales order mode of delivery which is populated based on the item settings.  Is this on the Microsoft roadmap to address in future releases?  If not, how do we get it added?

    There are two ways how PO's ca be created from SO.
    Regular one and other one is direct delivery.
    When it is direct delivery the PO is supposed to mirror everything related to deliver of SO.
    If one needs to change any delivery information on PO need it should be done directly on PO
    One can customize/extend to create default choices in parameters and then use it for further processing,

    Thank you for your responses Bruce and Rahul.  The fact that the PO is not mirroring the SO with regards to the delivery mode, but is instead using the vendor default, is problematic if we want more than one option for delivery on the SO.  Tracking of each SO to see if we need to manually update the PO is highly inefficient with our volume.  We were hoping this was simply a parameter setting, but since not I echo Bruce's desire to have this somehow addressed in future updates.  For now, we are thinking of setting up a job that updates purchase orders to match the mode chosen on the SO in batch at regular intervals.
