Sales Order 'Required By Date' and 'Customer Reference' displayed on the 'Allocated Details' screen
When trying to prioritise stock on backorder items, in particular when there are many backorders with varying due dates for a stock item, it would be good to see the 'Required by date' and 'Customer Reference' on the Allocated Details screen so stock can be prioritised for ordering/dispatching based on due dates. Right now we have to open up every sales order to see the 'Required by date' and 'customer reference', which can be a very long cumbersome process. Some of our backorders may not require fulfilment for 1 month to 12 months in some cases , where our order frequency can be 1 week for some suppliers. So we would normally only order with enough lead time to meet the required by date not months in advance. Similarly, provision for the on hand stock to be allocated to orders that actually require the stock at any point in time.
