We are new to Deco and are trying to figure out how to pull orders when part of the order comes from stock and some of it is being shipped to us from a supplier. We have enabled the inventory feature so now when we go to place an order the system appears to pull whatever it can from stock and creates a P.O. for the rest. For our ordering person this is great. My question is, as the receiving/order pulling person, how do you know which items are coming out of stock and which are inbound from a supplier? I can view the P.O. and manually figure out which items are stock by process of elimination but there has to be a better way to pull orders. A view within an individual order that shows which parts of that order are stock and which are inbound via P.O. Right now I can only tell which items are being shipped in via P.O.'s.
For you veterans of the program, how do you quickly pull orders with this system?
We don't currently have a pull sheet for items in stock however we're discussing about providing something to fill this need. You might see this come down the line in a future update. You can stay up to date on new features/updates via our blog:
Perhaps it would be an idea to have a column in the receive stock to show Local stock bin location and qty? as well as the download report. also when creating a purchase order this would also be handy if shown example (order qty 5) (From stock qty 8 Bin location E5B1)
Yes would be great to show us where the stock is located against each order when you order and receive the stock, Whilst we are talking about purchase orders I would like to be able to work off screens and not so much printing pick sheets, so would find it really useful to have an expand all button, and i know it might be difficult to do but a sort by customer option so we can pick by customer especially when the order is urgent and you just need to pull that one order first. Perhaps a drop down box at the top filter by then a list of customers on that PO, hope this makes sense.
Just one other thing that would be useful is to have the Order due display colours like you get in production screen in the awaiting purchase order, perhaps a traffic light next to each supplier so you know when you have to order.
Would We are thinking when you create a consolidated po , it would be handy to have an Orders tab .. showing all the orders and customer details.. at this point you can select unselect orders, and they are added , removed from the PO before clicking save to create the PO.. This what you are after..?
That would work when ordering and would be a nice addition. but i was thinking more about it more for receiving stock than ordering, for example you have a purchase order with 100 lines and you have 1 urgent order for 10 garments on different lines, so rather than dropping every line item down to see if this is for that customer, you could have a tab of all customers, select that urgent customer, it would show all items from this customer only, once these are pulled for that customer and checked, we can then receive and confirm that stock leaving other orders waiting to booked in. this would also help us a lot for sorting what garments are for what customer. Would also be good to show possible production status for that customer to show which process/department the garments need to go to.
Hope it makes sense
The new pull sheets are great for the most part. It would be so much easier to pull orders if the pull sheet showed all line items that were on the order instead of just line items that came from inventory. I would love to see it show all items on an ordered and the quantity ordered and if a particular line item had nothing from inventory then just leave the allocated to stock value at zero.....but at least includes those lines on the report. It would make pulling a complete order so much easier than the way it works now. Pulling items to me includes pulling from inventory as well as pulling things out of the boxes ordered from vendors. They all have to get onto the table and if it was all on one report it would be way easier. If it were up to me, show a list of po's for each line item also that would tell me at a glance where to go look for everything.
