Can we force Wanted Delivery Date to be a workday?

On a Purchae Order, in APPS10 we’re seeing that the Wanted Delivery Date calculation is allowing the date to be a weeekend or holiday. Is there a way to make that change itself to a work day?

You need to specify Workdays and Non-Workdays on the Distribution Calendar on the Site and also add holidays using the exception and apply to the Distribution Calendar.

Hope that helps

@jenotto Wanted delivery date is based on the Distribution calendar that connected to the site. Try to change the calendar to a calendar which contain working days only. But this might affect to all customer and purchase orders.

Did I answer your question?

Thank you @Jackie P and @Chamath Kuruppuarachchi ! I’m looking there now and think I’m observing that we are using the Default calendar and that the Default calendar is excluding weekends and holidays.

I’ve worked with customers where the default calendar ‘*’ simply did not work properly. For example, connected to a work center we would have no results from the work center resource capacity calculation.

Recommend in a TEST environment creating a new Calendar, using the Schedule WEEK and using this as the Distribution Calendar for the Site. As @Chamath Kuruppuarachchi stated, this will affect dates on customer orders and purchase orders.

Thank you @matt.watters , I’ll test that out.
