Jiwa Sales Orders - Sales Order Grouping

In this article we will look at how sales orders can be consolidated into a single invoice using the Sales Order Grouping function in Jiwa 7.



Sales Order Grouping allows you to group sales orders for a specific customer into one or more parent sales orders.  This is useful if your customer has many deliveries during a week or month but only wants to receive a single consolidated invoice for all orders delivered.

Only sales orders with a billing type of Ship & Bill can be grouped.

All sales orders are grouped based on their status of either Open or Processed.


From the standard Jiwa menu select Sales | Utilities | Grouping


Select the customer you want to group orders for by clicking on the Debtor search icon next to the Debtor field.


Select the order status to be group


Press the Search icon to load the available orders grid


To view the parts within each order simply click on the required sales order this will then update the order grid detail.


Grouping Orders

There are a number of ways in which sales orders can be grouped for consolidation;

  • Group All,
  • Group Select, and
  • Manual Grouping


Group All

To group all the orders that have been returned in your selection simply click on the Group All icon.
