Boulevard can track items that have been invoiced but are not in your current inventory. After receiving an inventory order into your software program, Boulevard will then give you an alert to view your backordered product and allow you to mark them as delivered when ready.
Note: Tracking and delivering back-ordered products does not change your inventory in any way. It is simply a method for keeping track of the products owed to your customers.
- From the Edit menu, select Preferences (or from Business group on the main toolbar click Preferences, then My Business Info).
- Click on the Invoice tab, and check Track Backordered product.
- Click OK to save and close Preferences.
- When an item is added to an invoice that is not in stock, it will be tracked under Backordered Products automatically.
Mark as Delivered or Remove Item
