After an inventory order has been created in Boulevard (either manually or imported from online), it can then be marked as Placed, putting it into a pending state. The quantities ordered are then added to each item's On Order field.
- Placing an order in Boulevard does not transmit it to the company. The actual process of placing an order must be done through the company website or your director.
- Do not continue to place the order into your inventory if the totals do not match exactly. This may indicate that either a price, quantity, or the correct items are not included on the order. Proceeding will cause your inventory quantities, and in-turn your records to reflect inaccurately. (See Balance the Totals on a Product Order.)
Mark an Order as Placed:
- From the Shortcuts form, click Inventory Order (or from the Product menu, select Inventory Order).
- From the open orders listed (indicated by a ), ensure the correct order is selected then click Place.
Click Yes to confirm that all of the items contained in the order will be added to the On Order field for each product.
After the order has arrived, the final step in the ordering process is to take the order from thePlaced status to Received. This will add the quantities from the On Order field to On Hand for each item ordered. (See Receiving a Product Order into Inventory.)
