IntroductionRequisitioning is a means to control the flow of stock, used when some sites cannot order specific stock items but are able to get them regularly from one or more sites.
This article outlines how to configure requisitioning for clients on the Inventory platform. This should be carried out by Fourth personnel.
Global SettingThe first step is to enable the global setting ‘Is Requisitioning Allowed’.

Enable Main Store SitesThe next step is to enable Main Store sites.
Note: Unlike the previous version of FnB Manager, Main Store sites can service sites that are not in the same Unit, this covered in the next section Managing Main Stores.
