This Solution describes a feature for automatically completing a Purchase Order using the Qty Needed and Order At Least quantities for a Warehouse. (5910)
This feature is part of the Warehouses Add-On, which is an additional module for Big Business Server that tracks inventory at multiple Warehouses.
When you select a Vendor on a new Purchase Order, Big Business checks the Quantity Needed for all Items that specify this Vendor and offers to automatically create the Purchase Order if any needed Items are found.
If a Warehouse is specified for the Purchase Order, Big Business checks the Quantity Needed by Warehouse for all Items that specify this Vendor and offers to automatically create the Purchase Order if any needed Items are found for this Warehouse.
