Stages
Stages are useful for filtering specific types of Purchase Orders.
The stages can either be represented in the list page as a Dropdown Box, or a Check Box List. To toggle between each type of appearance, select the appropriate option from the 'Display' dropdown.
Once stages have been created they will be shown as additional filter options on the Purchase order list page.

To add additional stages:

  1. Select Add Group.
  2. Enter a Group Name.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Save.
User Access

User Access controls who can view the Purchases Orders within the module.
