New feature alert: Sage 50 back-to-back ordering


One of the great new features in Sage 50 v29.2 is back-to-back ordering, which enables you to create a purchase order from a sales order.

Using the Create Purchase Order(s) option from the sales order window removes the need to duplicate work and saves you time. You can quickly create one or more purchase orders from one or more of your sales orders.

In the Create purchase orders from a sales order window, the products from the sales order are shown and you can create a purchase order on a per supplier record basis.

How to create a purchase order from a sales order

1. Click Sales orders then click New and enter your details as required.

2. Click Generate PO.
