Receiving

The Receive Tool in the Administration module lets you confirm that items in one or more purchase orders have been received from their vendors.

Receive a purchase order to add its items to inventory. Receiving is organized by vendor. It might be done for a specific site or multiple sites, and for one or more purchase orders. Partial receipts are recorded. As Items are received, the On Order quantity is reduced and the On Hand quantity is incremented. When all items are received, the purchase order is closed. Voiding a purchase order does not adjust On Hand quantity for any items that have not been received.

Note: Dropship purchase orders don't go through the receiving process and don't affect inventory quantities. When a corresponding dropship shipping order is marked with a tracking number as fulfilled, the associated purchase order is automatically closed. Inventory isn't adjusted.

To access receiving, click Receiving on the Inventory accordion menu in the left navigation panel. The Receiving Inventory page appears. From here you can search for a purchase order, view all items associated with the purchase order, and click receive to indicate that an item was received. See Receiving Purchase Orders for steps to complete this operation.
