FAQs

  • Why would I manually enter a Requisition, Purchase Order, or an Invoice?  Because when the ePro entry was done in PeopleSoft, the Work Order field was not added.  The interface from PeopleSoft to Maximo depends on the Work Order field in PeopleSoft to be entered and correct.


Steps to Enter Purchased Materials directly in Maximo (these would normally come through the Integration)
