The Check Product Restrictions (Status) function allows you to check if any products you wish to purchase are affected by any restrictions on your account or user profile. These may be set by your account administrator to only show suitable products or for spend control reasons.
Check Product Restrictions (Status) Help
Step 1 - Select a Username
On My Account page (if you have this functionality enabled), there is a section called "Check Product Status". In this section, you can select an account number (org unit) and, if applicable, a user name to check the products against.
Step 2 - Search for a Product Code
Step 3 - Search for Product Restrictions
Once you've inputted the code(s) and pressed submit, the tool will indicate whether the products are purchasable, purchasable with approval, non-purchasable or invalid.
These restrictions will be shown at either user or account level, depending on the criteria you entered at the start of the process.
