Purchase orders are an essential part of any business that deals with vendors and suppliers. They formalize the procurement process, ensure that the right goods are being ordered, and provide a future reference point. Dynamics GP offers a robust purchase order module that allows you to create and manage purchase orders easily. Use Elastic Windows fields to add custom fields and categories to the purchase orders to keep them organized.
By using Elastic Windows fields, you can add custom fields to your purchase orders. These can allow you to classify them in different ways. For example, you could add fields for the department or product that the order is for. This feature can be particularly useful for larger organizations with multiple departments or for companies that work with multiple suppliers.
Using Elastic Windows fields for purchase orders lets you filter and sort your purchase orders based on the custom fields. This can help you to track your purchasing activity more efficiently and make informed decisions about your procurement process.
Example Case Study:
Let’s say, that you run a retail business that sells clothing, and you have multiple departments within your company. Using Elastic Windows fields, you add a field to your purchase orders to indicate which department is making the order. This allows you to filter and sort your purchase orders based on the department. This will help you in tracking budgets, inventory levels, and ensuring that each department is getting the goods they need.
In addition to categorizing your purchase orders, Elastic Windows fields can store additional information relevant to your procurement process. For example, you could add a field to track the contract information (which can be a file upload) and a space to add internal purchasing department comments.
Using Elastic Windows fields to categorize purchase orders in Dynamics GP can be a useful tool for managing your procurement process. Adding custom fields to your purchase orders can help you track your purchasing activity more efficiently, make informed decisions about your procurement process, and ensure that the right goods are being ordered.
