Use this screen to create a new outlet requisition or modify an existing one. An outlet requisition is a requisition that is used to move products or recipes from one outlet to another. In some properties, to calculate profitability, outlet requisitions are used to record raw materials that are delivered to a department and the prepared products that leave the department.
