Data entry is a group of permissions in the Additional Permissions subsection for users and roles. These permissions allow the user to free text for certain fields when creating purchase orders. This permission can be given for vendors, delivery locations, charge to accounts, items, and department. In most cases users should be restricted from free text for fields other than Items. If a user is allowed free text then the field will not be fully managed and controlled in the system. This can also cause problems when trying to link to a financial package.
