How to create a purchase order
Updated over a week ago

Creating purchase orders in SKULabs is simple:

  1. Click Purchasing on the left side menu and click the + New PO button

  2. Optionally add a PO #, then select a store, supplier, and warehouse.

  3. Click on Add item or Add kit.

  4. When adding items to your PO, you can filter, search, sort, and show more items or columns on the table. If you already set up your account's reorder rule, you can enable the Use suggested quantity filter option to automatically fill in the quantity fields for items.

  5. We'll automatically suggest the rates for items based on your selected suppliers, but you can edit any supplier item rows with missing rates as needed.

  6. Click Save to add the items to the PO.

  7. Once you're finished adding items, click Save on the create purchase order window to create the PO.

Single Supplier Mode

When creating POs, you can select which specific supplier to order from before adding items.

When creating a purchase order using Single Supplier Mode, the following take effect:

  • The chosen supplier is selected as a filter under the Add-items table filters.

  • The Add-Items table is automatically filtered to show only the items linked to the selected suppliers catalog.

To add items not linked to the chosen supplier, simply apply the following to the Add-Items table filter:

  • Click Reset Filters near the bottom of the filters dropdown.

  • Unselect the supplier and click on Apply filters.

Multiple Supplier Mode

You can also start reordering inventory for multiple suppliers at a time. Items added with different suppliers will be created on separate POs. When you're finished adding items to the PO, you can select a supplier after the fact to assign those items to a supplier during PO creation.
