Purchase orders can also be scheduled to send automatically to suppliers at intervals you require.
- Auto if no stock – Adds an item to a purchase at the point your stock runs out.
- Always – Adds an item to a purchase order each time you sell one.
- At Stock Quantity – Allows you to configure a level with CCP should re-order from your supplier and an amount to re-order.
- Dropshipped – The Drop Ship option will automatically email your supplier with detail of customer orders that you wish them to dispatch on your behalf. This option also requires a email template configuring. Speak to your project manager for further help on this option.
6. Select Options and Set Values
If you select the At Stock Quantity option you will need to select the option you require and set the quantity you wish to re-order at. Also set the amount you wish to add to an order when this stock level is reached. This will place an order to bring your stock to the desired level.
When using this mode, if further sales arrive against this item before you send the purchase order then the PO will be adjusted to bring the stock to the desired level. Once you have sent the purchase order a new PO will not be created automatically until the sent one is delivered into the system and marked as completed.
