  • Validate an OE Template & Order Type by User (View Script. E.g. only selected users can convert OE Quotes to Orders)
  • Auto-number AP Vendors (View & Screen Scripts)
  • Hide fields on screens/grids/pop-ups (Screen Script. E.g. hide detailed comment) 
I must congratulate the Orchid team on what is quite an amazing module. The various Inter-Entity Trade scenarios have been very well thought through.
