This article describes the process of creating a Multiple Outlet Purchase Order from a Purchase Requisition.
Creating a Multiple Outlet Purchase Order
If there are multiple Purchase Requisitions outstanding for a single Vendor and multiple Outlets, these can be combined into one Purchase Order.
To do so, go to:
- Property > Vendors > Select Combine Outlet Orders > Save
Fig.1 – Combine Outlet Orders Setting within the Property Setup Vendors Page
Multiple Outlet Purchase Orders can now be created from Purchase Requisitions where there are products ordered from the same Vendor.
Please Note: This process will only work if the delivery dates do not vary. Otherwise, separate orders will have to be created.

All ordered products will now be displayed in a list.
- Check that all products are to be ordered from the correct Vendor and that the ‘Ship To’ column is populated correctly
Please Note: Products which are to be shipped to alternative locations will not be combined into the same order.
