Shipping Address

The shipping details are automatically populated into this tab from the warehouse that the purchase order is being raised against but can be manually overridden if required.

This is also the Deliver To address that appears on your purchase orders report.


Order Tab

Enter in the parts to be ordered in the Order tab by either keying in the part number in the Part No field or selecting the lookup icon next to the field to bring up your Inventory Search form.

If the item you have selected is already on another purchase order the following pop-up will appear.

If the item has not been ordered from the selected supplier before the following pop-up message will appear.

To continue select Yes

As this is a new supplier the selected part is being ordered from Jiwa will ask if you want to make this new supplier the Default supplier.

Selecting Yes will update the inventory item and set the new supplier as the default supplier when the purchase order is saved

Selecting No leaves the default supplier unchanged on the inventory record

The Replenish to Minimum pop-up will appear for each item selected.

This allows you to let Jiwa determine your order quantities based on the parameters you have selected.

If you do not want Jiwa to calculate a re-order quantity based on these settings simply select Cancel.

If you select OK the order quantities can still be change manually if required.

Set your order quantities and confirm the purchase price.


Order Totals

The total order value, cubic and weight measurements if applicable are displayed in the totals grid on the Orders tab.


Finalising your Purchase Order

Once you have completed your order press Save from the menu ribbon, at this point the order number will be applied.


At this stage the status of the purchase order is Not Sent when your order is finalised and ready to be sent to the supplier change the status of the purchase order to Sent

From the menu ribbon select Set Status To > Sent

The status of the purchase order will be changed to Sent

Even though the status of the purchase order is now Sent the order can still be changed/modified until such time as stock is received against the order
