The Reorder Low Stock feature in Linnworks Desktop is very helpful for creating POs.
Can it be replicated in .Net?
I think I'm going blind, which post states that we will be charged more, or a new tiered payment system is coming into place?
...except that the new BETA version of Open Orders has 'right clicked' disabled, and I can't see it in actions once an order is selected. I know it's available in the inventory, but this still means you have to be constantly looking and checking - there are no 'auto' features, and I can only select 'supplier code' as a filter, not supplier. The columns view doesn't allow any supplier selection.
As we have 10000's of products bought from many multiple suppliers, this list sorting by low stock amount is too time consuming. It would be far more useful if I could select a supplier. That would at least enable a proper order to be assembled quickly.
Hello Adam, you make very valid points there. I'll get your feedback over to the team overlooking the BETA. Thank you very much for taking the time for letting us know.
Hi Adam, I just got word back from the developers working on the new Open Orders screen open BETA. The PO functionality is ready to be released on the next large update.
Regarding sorting of suppliers that many have mentioned in this thread, we are aware of this and are looking for better ways on how to achieve this in Linnworks.net. Thank you all for your patience and valuable feedback!
The beta Open orders is really awfull compared with the other, we have ours set up so its easy to print in the order we require where as the new one seems very cluncky and not user friendly also on PO's the old desktop version of auto order to min level was great , when will this function be brought back ? At the moment we simply do a work round by using the query to Vlook up on downloaded sheets
I would like to know a release date for the Reorder low stock .net feature? Its the only reason I still log into the desktop version now. I also must stress the importance of improving the PO search like you have done in other areas of .net
When searching by PO number or supplier reference number the date range should NOT be considered. It drives my staff crazy that Purchase orders don't show up unless they have the correct date. Im sure this will be sorted as you seem to improve the searches on each new feature you release.
how do I add inventory
There will be more detailed docs and videos on how to do this coming out soon, but in the meantime, here is how it works:
This is really useful. I know that many Linnworks users have been waiting for this functionality.
However, I can't see where a "supplier" choice is available within the filter. Most companies will want to run a low stock report by "Supplier" and I can't see how this can be achieved.
I can see that it is possible to create a view by category using the drop-down menu, but this would mean having to assign a "supplier" category for each supplier.
If a "Supplier" drop-down menu was available as well as a "Category" drop-down this would help and would avoid having a different view for each supplier.
I hope this feedback helps.
I have also checked the SKU/Title/Barcode drop-down option and there is no supplier option available to help either. It is important for us (and other Linnworks users) that we can see the information "by supplier". Thank you for the progress made with this ... it just needs to be tweaked a little so that we can make full use of the functionality that has been developed.
Filtering and viewing default supplier is indeed not available in My Inventory yet. I do however know its in the pipeline to implement. I have requested the team who works on the My Inventory screen to provide information as to when we can expect it in the system, will update you one I have heard from the team.
Good news, the functionality to filter and view supplier is currently in development. Its scheduled for the current sprint, ETA 1st July (if all goes well and QA passed it in time). I am watching the dev card and will update this forum thread, once its closer to release. If you want to be automatically notified raise support and ask to be tagged in card BRAVO-69.
As a user, I want to be able to filter stock items in My Inventory by Supplier, so I could create a PO for specific Supplier.
Add column "Supplier" to MyInventory with Filter
The name of column is default supplier.
Filtering will be done by default supplier.
I agree, a filter is definately needed for supplier.
Also I see errors on my test - the suggested reorder quantity is less than the suppliers minimum order quantity. It should default to order the suppliers minimum order quantity or its going to be a very long laborious process to manually change the numbers every time. This is going backwards compared to the desktop funtionality.
What happens after I press create purchase order - what format is the file in? CSV or PDF? Where does it go!
@Jacqui Connor, I will check the supplier min quantity out and let you know if I can quickly fix it.
Once you hit create PO, it will create Purchase Order in Linnworks as Pending. You can then change its state to Open. You can configure Email templates for Purchase Orders to include PDF print out of the PO and include CSV file in the attachment.
Here is a quick video showing how it works:
