How Can I Purchase Materials from the Idea Shop?
Currently the Idea Shop offers two purchasing options:
Building a Cart
Scroll through the catalog until you spot your material.
Checkout / Reassignment
Once you are done building a cart, proceed to the checkout page. You will need to know:
- FOAP number
Departments can set up a blanket order in advance to minimize requisition times or to allow for in-person material purchases.
- Important fields to note
Descriptionshould contain specific information such as: class number, team name, research group name, etc.
- Blanket orders should explicitly list the individuals who are allowed to spend against the blanket order in the
Detailssection. If an individual is not listed in the details section we will not allow them to buy materials in-person against the blanket order.
- Please uncheck
Hide Amount from Supplierwhich is enabled by default. Hiding the amount makes it harder for us to keep teams from over spending.
Available Tofield enables BuyIt users to create requisitions / purchase orders against the blanket order.
