Purchase Order - Quick Start

Purchase Orders are how Inventory Pro allows you to fill your inventory by ordering items from suppliers. They can only be made on Inventory Pro desktop, although they can be completed on mobile as well as desktop. Purchase orders can be made automatically through the restocking feature, which is a topic for a different document.

Creating Purchase Orders

To create a purchase order manually:

  1. Go to Orders → Purchasing → Create Purchase Order or Orders → Purchasing → Purchase Orders → Create Purchase Order
    • You can also click on an existing purchase order on the Purchase Orders page to edit it.
  2. You will see a page like the one below:

  3. Select the supplier and where you are shipping to and sending the invoice to, then click Save. You can also fill out the optional fields on this page.
  4. Once you have clicked save, the option for the Line Items page will appear. Click on it.
  5. Here you can set what items you want as part of the order using the Item ID field and how many of them you want to order using the PO Units field. You can also fill in other information about the items being ordered. Click on the Add Line field to add a new line item.
  6. Click Save.

At this point, the order is saved and ready to be received. The receipt process is different on mobile and on desktop.
