Reorder backordered report - suggested PO's to multiple suppliers for the same item
I have noticed that it is very easy to create duplicate purchase orders for the same SKU if you have more than one supplier tied to the SKU at the product level.
The system wants to order for every supplier tied to the SKU - this is a big issue.
My suggestion is at the product level/supplier tab/ create a box next to the supplier that should be the priority, so the users can click the priority vendor and that is what is suggested in the REorder Backorder report. The system will have other suppliers still tied to the SKU number, in case your number one priority supplier is out of stock - you can contact the other suppliers for material.
I hope others have experienced this issue and agree with me, it is very dangerous how the system logic is set up today. Very easily can duplicate PO's to multiple suppliers for the same product.
