Receive partial PO's

The ability to receive a partial Purchase order and the remaining balance on the PO remains open. The only way to receive partial now is to delete the back ordered items and create a new PO

        Yes I strongly agree. It is very important for us to be able to keep track of partially fulfilled PO. With the desktop version, the process is automated but now after switching to the online version, we ended up having to track the process manually.

        QuickBooks need to get on this ASAP. I don't know if this was simply an oversight or what but any basic accounting software office this feature.

        1. Facility of linking one Purchase Order against Two or more purchase bill should be given.

        e.g. If I had given PO for 25 items and I had received three different bills on three different date say 10 item on 1.8.14, 12 items on 5.8.14 and balance 3 item on 7.8.14.

        on 1.8.14 when I am entering purchase bill for 10 item PO of 25 item get closed. it should be open for 15 item, and give option there to Pre-close, that means if transaction for balance 15 itemif has to closed we should click on pre-close

        I really need to have the capability of adding more than one bill to the same purchase order. This is crucial to running my business. Thank you.

        How can you not have an option to partially receive a PO. Defiantly a necessity!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You should also be able to turn an estimate into a purchase order for ease of ordering like the desktop version

        Well I am new to QBO but I do not understand why the PO have Rate and Tax Column in it. Since this is a order for purchase of some products from supplier the prize may vary from time to time and dictated by the supplier . How can I we upfront put a purchase prize in the PO and have it linked to accounts

        More a necessity for us! We seldom get stock delivered exactly as purchase order, usually something on back order, works OK on desktop! why not online?

        This seems like this would be so logical and already in place. Many, Many purchase orders have back ordered items. It's silly that QBO doesn't do this. If I could vote 100 times for this, I would.

        I have only used full scale ERP systems and am new to QuickBooks at a smaller company I recently joined. I was quite impressed with QBO until I was assigned a project to migrate our PO's from excel into QBO and came across this showstopper. 90%+ of our PO's are partial billed, so I am stuck unless a solution is rolled out ASAP.

        It's shocking that this isn't implemented yet, I too have to manually track POs. I don't have any vendors that ship/bill me for the entire PO at once. This means only the first bill is received/linked to the PO, and the bills to follow are not linked to the PO which means they cannot be tracked properly when looking back.

        The ability to post partial bills to purchase orders and still have the remaining items showing as open

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We would like to add more than one bill to a purchase order.
        In our line of work not all items from a purchase order are billed at the same time due top stock levels with the supplier

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Create a invoice for a partial amount of a PO. When multiple payments are necessary for large projects we need to be able to print a invoice for a percentage of the issued purchase order. In desktop you can create the invoice for the entire PO, a percentage of the PO or a fixed amount. We use this feature a lot and not having access to it could be a show-stopper for us.

        There needs to be functionality for multiple bills to be applied to a purchase order. The fact that a purchase order closes once a bill is applied to it does not work in the real world. The purchase order should close when the total has been billed.

      • Julie LavoieJulie Lavoie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I really need this function so I can track partially open POs within QBO. This lack in functionality creates so much extra work for me because I have to track my PO's outside of QB on a spreadsheet.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        when the customer enters a purchase order s/he can only apply the entire purchase order to the bill.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Not only is this needed, I am stunned that the purchase orders were added without this very basic function. Vendors quite often send and bill for incomplete orders and QBO purchase orders have no way of properly dealing with this.
