FTP EDI System Changes
Michaels Purchase Order (PO) system does not currently send PO changes to the FTP EDI system that you use to retrieve your POs. PO changes are faxed or emailed to you from your Michaels buyer. In the next couple of months, PO changes will become available on FTP EDI. This new functionality will make FTP EDI more usable for you and will relieve your buyer from having to fax or email you the changed PO.
The exact date when PO changes will be sent to FTP EDI is expected to occur in early July. We will notify you of the final date as we near the end of our user acceptance testing. Once we go live with EDI change orders, we will send out the EDI 860 PO Change transaction to you. The 860 will contain only header information (PO number, etc.) and those data elements that changed (ship/cancel dates, line item quantities, allocation changes, etc.). We will not be sending a complete replacement order with the EDI 860.
What do I have to do?
The Michaels EDI group will have a rollout calendar listing which vendors will be rolled out for the 860 by week. Our goal is to have all EDI vendors receiving the 860 PO Changes by year-end.
