Special Characters Prevent eStores Push to PeopleSoft
eStores items that use special characters such as inch or quote marks or “<” and “>” symbols in the item description, may not push to PeopleSoft using the eStores distribution method and the “Send to PeopleSoft” button.
Service Centers can use the Requisition distribution method for these eRequests until this issue can be resolved.
For questions about this issue, please contact Suzanne Edie at email@example.com or 688-1130.

Five suppliers are new to the OSU contract and the eStores system. Nine existing eStores suppliers will offer revised catalogs reflecting the new contract discounts. Contact the Stores Service Center at 2-2694 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the eStores catalog.
New catering catalogs:
Au Bon Pain
Eat Fresh Sandwiches (Subway)

Made from Scratch
A new “Full Service Catering” item added to each catering catalog. Each catalog will include the caterer’s menu as well as a Full Service Catering item. This item can be used to enter a large order for an event that has been quoted by the supplier. The total dollar amount of the event should be entered in the quantity field to produce an order for that amount. Quote numbers and any other important details should be included in the Business Purpose section of the eRequest. See below for an example.
