This suggestion is intended for Adam Cole in reference to your Reorder Point video with Chris Gates.
First, thank you so much for working on analytics and forecasting for inventory and PO!
Improvements to the Purchase Order functionality on .net have been needed and this is definitely a great step in the right direction.
Thanks for the feedback, it was lovely to hear.
I have some good news regarding your suggestions. FBA consumption should be recorded by default. You should be able to view it in MyInventory, the same as any other location. In time we will look at other ways to visualise the data.
I really like the idea of having a default supplier column. I think that having that would make filtering the data for reordering much easier. I'll look into the best way of doing this as soon as I can, but I don't know if we can hit the same ETA as creating POs.
Your third suggestion is a little trickier. I know there's been a lot of work by other members of the team on POs recently, so I'll have to have a chat with them and see how feasible this is.
Thanks again for the suggestions,
"Suggestion 2 Make a "Supplier" column available. " Should be of high priority.
Stock reordering is the only thing I currently have to log into desktop for having migrated over to .net almost two years ago now.
Myself and I'm sure many others have waited patiently for purchase ordering etc to be migrated over to .net with the same feature as desktop but to not include at launch would be criminal as we would still have to log into desktop. The adding to purchase order can wait however the need to filter the data by supplier is the main way you generate Purchase orders.
You look at supplier A and say right i need abcd and e and you then create a puchase order for it.
You do not do - i need abcd an e and think right which supplier is A and which purchase order is it which supplier is B and so on.
Also having filter by supplier in inventory view would hopefully allow you to use the new copy and paste function in purchase orders until phase two is complete.
So it is a No Brainer!
I know I have already previously raised this issue so I 'm reiterating my point as I feel strongly that this needs to be pushed forward asap.
I am however very appreciative of all the work that has gone on behind the scenes to get the current feature to where they are now so well done guys.
@Adam I appreciate your reply. Yes, the FBA location consumption has been recorded in item stats, but advanced reordering strategies in Desktop relied on:
@Paul Sounds like you have similar growing pains as we do.
Sometimes two heads are better than one when it comes to various issues with Linnworks.
