Inventory Purchase Orders / Receiving Window - Purchase Orders Tab
|Top Previous Next|
The Inventory Purchase Orders / Receiving Window is the interface to manage and monitor the status of Purchase Orders for Inventory.
Show Open Purchase Orders Only: By default, the Inventory Purchase Orders Grid will display all Inventory Purchase Orders regardless if the Inventory Purchase Order is open or closed. Select the Show Open Only option to display only Inventory Purchase Orders that are currently designated as open which can often greatly reduce the number of Inventory Purchase Orders listed. Design Manager will automatically close an Inventory Purchase Order if the Received Quantity matches the Ordered Quantity and a Received Date has been recorded for each Stock Item on the Inventory Purchase Order and Vendor Invoices have recorded for each Stock Item.
The Inventory Purchase Orders Grid lists the Purchase Orders in descending Purchase Order Number order so that the newest Inventory Purchase Orders are listed at the top of the grid. Like most grids in Design Manager, however, the Inventory Purchase Orders Grid can be sorted by most columns simply by clicking on the desired column heading. If no Inventory Purchase Orders have yet been created in Design Manager, the Inventory Purchase Orders Grid will obviously be blank. The grid has the following columns:
Add and Edit: The Add and Edit buttons will display the New Inventory Purchase Order Items or Edit Inventory PO / Change Order Windows to create a new Purchase Order or revise the selected Purchase Order on the Inventory Purchase Orders Grid, respectively. More information on is available under the New Inventory Purchase Order Items Window and Editing an Inventory Purchase Order below.
Delete: Upon selecting a Purchase Order and clicking the Delete button, one of two actions will occur:
Re-Print: The Re-Print button will display the Re-Print Inventory Purchase Order Window whereupon the selected Purchase Order can be reviewed in the Print Preview Window, printed directly to a printer, or emailed to a Vendor. The Re-Print Inventory Purchase Order Window will discussed in full under Re-printing or E-mailing an Inventory Purchase Order later in this chapter.
Receiving/Status (Rec/Status): Clicking the Receiving/Status button will display the Inventory Purchase Order Status Window to record and review a wide variety of information regarding the purchasing, shipping and receiving for the Stock Items on the selected Inventory Purchase Order. For more information on the Inventory Purchase Order Status Window, see Acknowledging Inventory Purchase Orders and Receiving Inventory below.
Search Purchase Orders (Search Pos): Clicking the Search Purchase Orders button displays the Search for Inventory Purchase Orders Window which allows the user to search all existing Inventory Purchase Orders for a particular Inventory Stock Item. The Search Purchase Orders function is discussed in full under the Search for Inventory Purchase Orders Window below.
