I recently managed after years of trying to have mapics take this (again) as
an enhancement request.  My hope is they consider it high enough on the
priority list to withold it in the 'will be done first' list.  It can get
there if enough people support this enhancement request, so you know what
you'll have to do: ask for it too in an official way

I submitted as a request a whole 'outside operations support' set (8 points)
and not just one function. These (I believe) cover the whole track of :
    - releasing the PO, and keeping them referenced
    - support blanket PO's and contracts
    - seeing it in MRP, even if you reschedule the MO,
    - a user hook for printing shipping papers,
    - receiving it and at the same time logging transactions against PO and
MO,
    - ...

Mind you, you may have to ask twice.

Wish us luck guys, and keep MAPICS the functionally richest package
