Thanks for posting your question. While I realize that you’re interested to hear what other Ariba customers have to say, I wanted to share some insights with you from the On-Premise Product Management team.
Among the options being considered for 9r3 is the “Buyer Procurement Wizard” candidate enhancement feature, which would help address the scenario you’ve outlined.
If you’d like to learn, you can contact your Ariba Customer Engagement Executive or the On-Premise Product Manager, Hari Babu Krishnan.

Thank you for the information. Our vote on the 9r3 candidate enhancement list did not include that item; I don't think we were clear on what that functionality would do. Hopefully it will be in the 2nd round of voting.
