Purchase Order from Re-order points
erplain will help you create Purchase Orders automatically based on your Re-order points.
- Simply click on 'Re-order':

- Review your other options and click on 'Create Purchase Order(s)':
Once you have created the Purchase Order(s), you can edit it to change any of the other values.
Please note that erplain will add the first 50 products to the PO. If you need to add more products to the same PO, please create the first PO then add remaining products to the active PO:
