The Auto Utilities application can be started using command line switches to automatically launch the Auto PO module and to run Auto PO with predefined criteria. The command line switches available are:
auto.exe /autopo = Starts Auto Utilities and launches the Auto PO module.
auto.exe /autopo /nointeract = Starts Auto Utilities and launches the Auto PO module.
When run is selected from the Settings screen, the View Results screen is bypassed and POs are generated immediately. A confirmation dialog reports the number of POs generated. auto.exe /cmdstore:
Example: auto.exe /cmdstore:001 = Launches and runs Auto PO in command line mode, displaying only a progress dialog. Performs analysis only for the specified store using current settings. This command line is very useful for using Auto PO with Scheduler to generate POs automatically using your predefined criteria.
