Hi

Would it be a big job to add the highlighted order colours within the purchase order screen, the same as displays on the order screen from the order due display settings, as sometimes we do not need to order all items in from a purchase order all in one go

Issue here is 1 item can easily span multiple orders.

What we have internally discussed is a better way to create Purchase orders based on criteria..

Ie , when raising a po , only raise items that meet such criteria as

- from certain store
- overdue x days
- used x shipping method
- is rush order

( add whatever you guys think here).

Does that solve the same issue..?

Cheers,
Greg

Hi Greg

This wont work as we get free carriage on orders over a certain amount, so would be creating the PO blind to the total amount. When creating the full PO at leased you can physically see all the orders in the created purchase order for that supplier and then you can untick the non urgent line items and if necessary add a couple of line items on to make up the free carriage.

Perhaps only highlight half the line if there are multiple orders for that item, then you can use the drop down and untick the non urgent ones

I do like the idea of being able to see the rush orders though

Hope this makes sense, any thoughts ?

Wish list

1. filter / create PO by items required for actual orders only - not "allocated to stock"

2. Enough items to total a minimum order cost + based on the required delivery date.
Some suppliers offer free shipping if PO total value is a certain amount, we intentionally split POs across days to leverage this and improve our overall just-in-time flow. This allows us to have a steady flow of inbound production inventory, but more importantly: if we get a "rush order" we can slide it into a PO and get it delivered next day without worrying about shipping cost. We use to only process POs once a week but found this strategy better managed flow and with the rush order advantage.

3. Add to that - Shipping time per supplier field to allow forecasted delivery at the time of order. This could be calculated based on PO issue date versus the first item received date. If the order for a non-stock item is placed in our store we can advise the client of the possible extra time, but if the order is placed online it does not offer the warning for the extra time required. Some of our suppliers take up to 5 days to move product across the country so the production times are longer than normal.

Thanks for the wishes - consider we have tossed a coin into the "Deco fountain of development"  :-)

Here is a quick idea of adding coloring to PO's...

Expanding the item can show linked orders color coded...

This work.?

Perfect that would be extremely helpful, is there a way to add an expand all at the top, if the highlighted colours are in the drop down?
