Lightning Purchase Orders - Receiving Inventory


Purchase orders help you have greater control of your inventory management & parts warehousing needs.  The most important step of the purchase order is receiving the ordered parts and instantly making those parts available for you or other users.  


To Receive parts on an open purchase order:

5. Confirm the receiving date is correct, and change if necessary. 

6. If desired, you may enter the Packing Slip # and the Invoice # in the appropriate field. 


7. Click the OK button.

 Stocked parts quantities are instantly updated upon receipt of the ordered parts on the purchase order.

 Non-Stock parts quantities will not be affected by a purchase order, but the cost will still be recorded as an expense.


If you need to undo or make a correction to a purchase order that already has some parts received, you may do so by removing the shipment.

8.  To delete a shipment, click on the Receiving tab. receiving tab.png
