I’d like to get some more information regarding your purchase orders and the auto order facility.
Please can you provide more detail about the workflow you would use in 8.3 for auto orders?
I.e which options you would take for auto ordering, s
To clarify we browse purchase orders, create, purchase orders. This takes us to a screen "Specify Create Purchase Orders" which we run without specifying any group, supplier or location and without ticking any boxes. This can also be reached by Purchase orders: routines : maintenance : Create purchase orders.
In version 8.3 and previous any new orders would have been added to old orders that had not been OK'd. The purchase order for that particular supplier would then include product from the old not OK'd order and the new order. We would then assess the order and release it if it reached the required value or other criteria for that particular supplier.
Since upgrading to version 8.5 the purchase orders have not been amalgamated which has meant that we need to cut and past from one order to another so as to generate a single order that satisfies the requirements of the supplier.
I hope you are able to help here as we deal with thousands of products for hundreds of suppliers and this missing functionality is creating a lot of manual work every day of the week.
