Automatic Purchase Order quantities to minimum levels

started a topic over 5 years ago

We should be able to automatically fill the Purchase Order quantities to the amount needed to bring the stock level up to the Minimum Stock level. This is a very basic feature and I was quite surprised it is not available.

  • 'Reorder Quantity' field on Product details screen does exactly what you expect. This option is available since inception as you correctly specified it as a very basic feature.  

  • I don't think you understand what Ron is saying.


    Ron would like to set a minimum to 5 and a reorder qty to 1.

    If Ron's inventory actually dips down to 4 before it is time to reorder, then he would like that reorder qty automatically changed from a 1 to a 2.


    This is more commonly referred to as a min/max inventory approach and it is not one that DEAR supports (although it absolutely should).


    We are handling this via data export, spreadsheet number crunch and data import back into a PO. It's cumbersome and ridiculous as it should be included in DEAR to begin with.

  • Exactly. I thought "automatically fill the Purchase Order quantities to the amount needed to bring the stock level up to the Minimum Stock level" was clear enough.

  • I see that this has been marked as "Implemented" but I don't see where this was addressed in any of the recent updates to DEAR. Can you point to where this was implemented?
