Purchase Orders FAQ

Why are my purchase orders not increasing my inventory?

In order for Purchase Orders to increase your inventory, you must add Purchase Invoices against them.

A Purchase Order is just a wish-list of items you want to purchase. You are requesting these items, but have not received them yet.  So creating a Purchase Order, and them finalizing it to be sent to the distributor, will not increase your inventory.

Once you receive the order from the distributor, you will have an invoice in that box you receive.  You need to enter that invoice against the purchase order, in order to increase your inventory.  Here is how you can do that.

  1. Go to your Purchase Order screen in the Dispensary, and then click on the “edit” button next to a finalized purchase order.
  2. Scroll down and click on “Add Invoice” to add an invoice against the purchase order.
  3. Fill out the date on the invoice, and enter the correct amounts of products received.
  4. If you have received everything from this purchase order, then you can complete it.  If not, then save the purchase order and come back to it later to add more invoices against it as you receive the rest of the order.
