Make Supplier Selection Reason Mandatory
Your Noosh Admin can now make Supplier Selection Reasons mandatory when placing Orders. To configure this your Admin should navigate to My Group > Procurement Options > Selection Reasons:
When the Selection Reasons page loads you can set the Selection Reason to Mandatory by clicking "Edit Preferences" and changing the preference to "Yes".
Note: If your Noosh instance has been previously customized to make Supplier Selection Reasons mandatory no action is needed on your part. We will automatically set this new preference for you.

New native MS Excel format option when saving reports
You now have the option to create a native excel file when saving reports, the "MS Excel" format.

Using the new format is easy, just choose it from either the "Run" menu when running reports directly:
Or, choose it from the Preview menu when previewing reports in the report writer tool:
Finally, when you schedule a report you will be able to choose the new format in the Schedule tab:
