When this option is on, a warning will be displayed when trying to quick fulfill an order before payment has been made.

If this option is on, an Invoice button will be added to the Icon.Sales Order.png Sales Order module toolbar. The Invoice button loads a Sales Order report that is marked as an invoice.
  • Check bill of material parts when checking inventory
If this option is on, the Sales Order Check Inventory button will check the inventory of the raw goods on an auto-create BOM, instead of checking the inventory of the finished good.

  • Highlight the difference in list price after saving the order

A user must have the Sales Order-Markup and Sales Order-Margin access rights to be able to adjust the markup and margin. Markup and Margin fields will also be added near the order total which shows the total margin percentage and markup amount for all items on the order. This is also helpful for wholesale pricing, where the price is determined by marking up the cost a small percentage. The markup can also be set by using pricing rules.

This data can continue to flow the the Shipping module if the Add custom fields option is enabled in the Icon.Picking.png Picking module options.
  • Days to expire
Specifies the number of days until the order is marked as expired. By entering a value of zero, orders will not expire, even if an expiration date is manually entered on the order. For more information, see the Date Expires field on the Details tab of the Icon.Sales Order.png Sales Order module.
