FastBase can automatically generate purchase orders for all indent requests (unallocated back orders). FastBase can also generate purchase orders for stock based on current stock levels, sales history and other settings.

Daily Ordering

To order stock on indent request select the option "Purchasing - Suggested Order Generation".

Selected Parts:
Select the products to report on. The default is 'All Products'. See Selecting Accounts for Reports & Processing.

Purchasing Branch:
Select the branch that will be receiving the stock, defaults to your branch.

Order Indents:
This option is always "Yes" and cannot be changed. All items with indent requests will be ordered to fulfill the requirements, the current available stock will be taken into account.

Re-Order Stock:
For daily ordering this option would be left as "No", set to "Yes" for FastBase to suggest order quantities based on indent requests and sales history.

Order for Company:
Set this option to "Yes" to order for the entire company (all stock locations).

Show All Parts:
This option determines if all parts are displayed or only those that the computer suggests require ordering. Set this option to "Yes" when you want to review all items and maintain the re-order quantities manually.
