Purchase order creation is a rather straightforward process in Fishbowl. Simply open the Purchase Order module in Fishbowl’s interface and click the New button. Then add a vendor and a PO number will automatically be attached to it and the status will be set to Bid Request. You can update the Fulfillment Date and even attach a sales order to a purchase order.
Then you just add parts to the order through a Wizard or a list of your inventory. Then you can save the order and issue it. You can even use a tool in the Purchase Order module to set up automatic reorder points on all of your parts. This helps you maintain a healthy equilibrium of inventory in stock.
