Creating a Purchase Order in Your Trial

To start communicating with the suppliers/vendors, you need to prepare the purchase orders, which indicate the items you need to buy. The purchase orders can be prepared directly from the purchase orders page or the jobsheet. Let’s look at the different methods.

Creating a purchase order from the jobsheet

To create a purchase order from the jobsheet:

  1. Select the item lines you want to order by ticking on the box in column Purchase(Special); this can be items that don’t exist in the system where you have added a placeholder item No. such as MISC or items that exist in the system but are currently not in stock. Ticking this column selects the items and marks them to be added to the purchase order.
  2. Fill in the Vendor No. column to the right by selecting a supplier of your choice.
  3. At the top of your jobsheet in the actions bar, click on Parts.
  4. Select Create Purchase Order(s) from the submenus. A purchase order is created.

Linking a purchase order with the jobsheet

To link a Purchase order with a jobsheet:

  1. Scroll up to the General FastTab.
  2. Fill in the Jobsheet No. field, or choose from the list.
  3. All the items in the purchase order will now be automatically added to the linked jobsheet.

Note:

Do this before adding any items to the purchase order.

Note:

You can only link a purchase order to a jobsheet once you receive the supplier invoice.

Creating a purchase order from the purchase orders page

  1. From the navigation menu on the role centre, click on Purchasing to access the submenus and select Purchase Orders.
  2. From the purchase orders page that opens, click on +New to create a new purchase order and enter the vendor details from the General FastTab.

After adding the vendor details:

  1. . Add the item(s) to the purchase order Lines, specifying the item No., Quantity and Description.
  2. .For the items that don’t exist in the system (for example, items that you’ve never used before), you can use a placeholder item No. for example, MISC as you wait for the correct No. from the supplier’s invoice.
