The Inbound Logistics tab allows users to add the product to the inventory. We need to create a Logistic record for the Purchase Orders whose type should be ‘Inbound’.
1. Creation of Logistics record for a Purchase Order
If we check the ‘Ready the Receive’ checkbox while creating the Purchase Orders on the ‘Create Purchase Orders’ page and click on Save, the system will create the Purchase Order and its Logistic record.
If we create a Purchase Order from the Create Purchase Order tab without checking the ‘Ready to Receive’ checkbox, the system will create the Purchase Order, but we need to navigate to the Purchase Order record level and need to check the ‘Ready to Receive’ checkbox manually to create the Logistic record. Follow the below steps to create the Logistic record manually –
- Find the Purchase Orders tab from the App Launcher.
- Once in the Purchase Orders tab, you can view the Purchase Orders information already filled in.
- Find the Purchase Order and open it, check the ‘Ready to Receive’ checkbox, and ‘Save’ the Purchase Order record. The system will create the Logistic record.
