The Reorder Low Stock feature in Linnworks Desktop is very helpful for creating POs.
Can it be replicated in .Net?
I would reiterate some of the comments Jacqui has made, it needs to be Bish Bash Bosh Job Done.
I see minimum level as the point at which you reorder stock. If you have an item which has a quantity 30 in the inventory you set a minimum level of 5 when the level hits 5 you know it is time to re-order, the only way to set the amount in your purchase order automatically is to set the supplier minimum order to say as an example 25 which would then bring the 5 back up to 30.
This is why I would argue the case that there needs to be a Target Quantity as well as a Minimum Level, you could then set the Target quantity to 35 and the purchase order system could say order items to meet the Target Quantities set.
This approach would allow the supplier minimum order quantity to be used as it should be. If in the event your minimum supplier order was 50 the amount between your level and the target quantity would be overridden by the minimum supplier quantity.
Thank you Paul for a good suggestion. Target quantity makes perfect sense. I will bring this up with the team.
Great to see some useful updates on this over the past week or two. Is there any documentation on how JIT could be used and what benefits/differences it has over a product having a minimum level of 0?
Any update on filtering by supplier on the My Inventory screen?
Hi Fedor, there seemed to be some good progress being made with completing this and I just wondered if there were any updates to finalise this work.
The card is currently Awaiting Release, so it should be release in 5.170.x.x
You can check the current version, from the top panel > support icon > changelog. I believe the release is currently scheduled for beginning of next week (commencing 5th Aug)
Hi Fedor, many thanks for the update that I can see on the changelog. Being able to sort inventory by supplier has been a feature that many users have been waiting for. This is great news and will help us to manage our inventory more effectively.
Fabulous News,Would be helpful if it wasn't just the default supplier going forward and you could search via all suppliers like on the desktop.
We have many instances where we have more than one supplier for the same product.
The new Default Supplier filter is great, but it would be even better if it allowed "Not Equals" filters too. This way you can create tabs for major suppliers and another tab for all other suppliers (too many to have a tab each). Until that is available the Desktop version is still much easier to use.
For anyone still struggling with placing supplier orders via Linnworks.net, we've created a script that you can add to the Query Data tab.
The script allows you to filter by Supplier and Location and will tell you what SKUs and Quantities (along with other details such as cost price, etc) you need to order to meet your Min Level.
The key part is that it takes into account any stock you have Due, which Linnworks.net doesn't currently do.
The script with full installation instructions is available to order here if anyone is interested: https://gum.co/BfKpu
