Create Purchase Orders by Default
This FAQ will go over how to set up items to create purchase orders by default.
- To set an item to create purchase orders by default, go the inventory item and select the “Create PO’s” checkbox.
- Now when this item is added to an order, it will turn blue to signify a PO will be created for it.
- This can also be manually set in the order by selecting the “Create PO” checkbox on an order.
To show this, right click the order header and select the column chooser. Then select “Create PO”.
- Once the order is released, the lines set to create POs will cause a prompt to give an option to create the POs.
If this pop up does not appear, it can be enabled by going to System > Company Preferences > Sales > Warnings and Messages.
If the order is converted to a PO, this pop up below will appear. All items set to create POs will be selected by default.
If the line items don’t have POs created for them once the order is released, they will appear in the Special Orders Purchasing Screen. More info about that can be found in this FAQ: Special Order Purchasing Screen
