A function common to many multi-store operations is to create a purchase order for one store and copy or duplicate the PO into other store’s pending purchase orders. In Paladin, purchase order creation is unchanged; you just need to set the Enable Copy PO To Other Stores function.
If the feature has been enabled AND approved as an option when creating a PO, the Remote Update window is displayed allowing you to pick and choose which stores are to receive a copy of this PO. Check/uncheck the selection boxes for each distant store to your satisfaction. When run, a store by store message of “connecting” and either “successful” or “unsuccessful” is displayed for each location.
Note: Most distant updates require about ½ a second per store to perform.
Important: The original store’s PO will print/email/upload as it has always done. All copies of purchase orders do not automatically print/email or upload in the distant store. Should you need to perform any of these output functions, log into that store, find the PO, and select F6 Reprint or F5 Resend from the PO Receive – Confirm Receive screen.
You will find all store specific data was updated when the PO was copied. This shows items, such as store specific account numbers and shipping/billing address, are correct. Also, the distant store’s Quantity On Order and On Order History Viewer are correctly populated.
To enable this feature, Enterprise Remote Updates must have been configured and tested by Paladin Customer Service. If that requirement has been met:
- In Paladin, from the main menu, select File > Setup.
- Select the Company tab.
- In the Purchase Orders pane, check Enable Copy PO To Other Stores.
- Click Save, and then click Close.
