Reorder Inventory with Low Quantity
- Navigate Inventory > Product >Toolbox > Purchasing.
- In the Inventory Low Notice On field, set an inventory low level at which the product will be filtered for notice of reorder.
- Set the field to a value of 5, for example, and click Save.
- Navigate Inventory > Unfillable Products
- Select Below Inventory Low Level. As soon as this item's inventory level dips below 5, it will appear in this grid.
- When selecting Unfillable Orders, all unavailable items of back orders will list in the grid. Use the Order drop down to filter items that have been already ordered. Please be aware that for this to work the status of a Purchase Order must have been changed from Saved or Pending to Ordered.
- You can also filter items by vendor so that the purchase order will only contain items for a particular vendor.
- Select the items you want to order and click Add to Purchase Order on the action menu.
- Another option is to drag and drop an item from the main grid into the purchase order cart. Then click Edit Cart and set up the rest of the purchase order on the following page.
