Create a New Purchase (Advanced Features) option

started a topic over 6 years ago

We place orders with suppliers for a period (usually a month) and we then draw down on this order as we need it every few days. The supplier delivers the required part of the month's order as required. We can receive 10 or more deliveries on the same supplier invoice in a month.

The way this is processed currently on Dear is not easy.

Specifically, having to manually adjust and update the total number of any items received at that point and Saving rather than Authorising is open to errors. See the heading "To process multiple deliveries with a single invoice:" on this page:

Can you create an Advanced Features version of Purchases in the same way that you have for Sales, that allows easy part order receipts and generally a simpler and more efficient interface?

  • This would be an incredibly useful feature for us - please create an advanced feature version for purchases as you have in Sales

  • This needs to happen ASAP

    At the moment, when you receipt goods on a Purchase Order and authorise it, it closes off the Purchase Order and doesn't allow you to receipt a second shipment for the same PO.

    The only workaround at the moment is to Clone the PO and delete the items that have been receipted on the original shipment... which is quite cumbersome and inadequate in my opinion.

  • I also would like this feature asap. I cannot create more than 1 credit note for a purchase. We often have to send back items for replacement from an order at different times (because they are covered by warranty).

  • @Dear, great to see this feature is in Planning! Is it possible to provide some indication on when it might be deployed?

  • YES. we need to do "partial invoicing" which is invoice first, as opposed to the current method that is stock first and using clone.

    That latter method is useful for suppliers on Net credit terms , but most vendors will not ship or release any (partial) shipment from customs, without payment...

  • Oh yes! This would be great if the purchasing had some of the same features, ie. multiple receiving with the option to invoice them separately or together.

  • Dear Dear,

    Any insights as to when this might be deployed?


  • Will there be training video for the new features?
