Purchase Order

Postby atobias » Thu Mar 30, 2017 10:13 am

Riddle me this Batman: When receiving a PO to a repair order you put the vendor's invoice number on the record, go through the whole process of receiving the parts associating them with the repair order they were ordered for, and close the PO. Why, why, why does it not put the vendor's invoice number on the part record on the repair order?
PS. I've been asking for this for 15 years at least.

Andy - I'm in agreement 100%. It has been on the list for a very long time.

I can tell you that we put together a development story a couple months ago that would allow the single entry of the vendor invoice into Ref/Inf # field when receiving parts and have it copy down to the individual part lines. because we have users who put other information into that field, we devised a checkbox (in Receive All Parts - Options window) to toggle to the desired behavior.

Now all we need is development time and a release to squeeze this into. :shock: I'm pushing for this - stay tuned

Where, when receiving a PO, can you enter the supplier invoice number?

If there is I must be skipping right by it with hyper mouse clickage.

The behavior to copy it down to part lines is NOTdeveloped yet; this would be the field used:

Ah OK, we put the RO # and last name there so it shows up on the part invoice

Which is why I proposed a checkbox to preserve that option if desired.

I can see that, but I think if I can enter the part invoice number there and have it transfer to all of the parts i will:

Use as normal, enter RO number and last name, then when the parts get here I can change that information to the Part invoice number. Would save quite some time if it would work that way. Right now we add the RO/LN to make it easier when we get the parts. If we needed to search for the PO later we can always use the RO# that is automatically tag to PO at the top of it.
