Receiving a complete purchase order

  2. Select the plus sign for each quantity of the item.
  3. Repeat until all items for an order appear under “Items Received”.
  4. Select Complete. 
  • If some items in an order have not been received, a message appears advising that a back-order will be created for the remaining items.

Options for receiving into locations

Location options can be selected in the “Receive Into” dropdown menu in “items received”. 

Last Location

An item is received into the last location used for that product. 

No Location

An item is received into No Location when receiving a product for the first time. 

  • It is recommended to use No Location when Racking is enabled in Settings.
