- Use inventory on order to fulfil new orders lets you choose whether items ordered as inventory in a purchase order will be automatically allocated to sales orders that do not already have a purchase order associated with them.
When a manually created purchase order is saved, the system will check all SKUs in the purchase order against existing sales orders that do not have SKUs associated with them and assign the SKUs to the sales orders that are awaiting stock in order to fulfill those sales orders. Allocation will be in the order of oldest sales orders first.
When a new sales order is created, the system will check the SKUs being ordered against existing purchase orders and assign matching SKUs from the purchase orders to the SKUs in the sales order. Allocation will be in the order of oldest purchase orders first.
- When allocating items to stock turn inventory on if needed lets you choose whether to automatically turn inventory on when allocating stock that does not have inventory enabled. If the checkbox is ticked, inventory tracking will automatically be turned on if you allocate stock that does not have inventory enabled when receiving stock in a purchase order.
