add menu selection that creates PO's for an order based on all backordered items on that order.
add menu selection on an order that creates PO's for an order based on all backordered items on that order, or after you hit Create new PO, have a "from order: _____" that pulls b/o items on the po for the vendor selected.
Adding to fulfillment mgr would be fine. It would be a huge time saver. To my knowledge there is no current way to automatically generate a PO for all backordered items for a vendor, is there? That would take cms a while to calculate whats currently on order vs. whats not with thousands of PO's in the system. This is more of a creation tool.
We do this now for dropship items but, since you mention doing this for back ordered items, I read that you're wanting a similar processing option for back ordered stocked items.
Like dropships, this process could result in multiple PO's generated for that order as the items could be from different vendors.
Can you elaborate on what differentiates when you'd want to generate PO's for a single order vs the current more general handling of creating PO's for resupplying your stock and/or multiple orders?
In part I'm trying to understand if there is a set of rules we should consider to trigger PO creation (like we do for dropships).
I also question if this should be an option from Fulfillment Manager>Back Orders to generate PO's for selected orders.
It would be helpful again to just understand when/why to create PO's just for a specific order.
