Is there anyway to include the catergory/sub category in a purchase order if not this could be really usueful.
If this was a template that could be edited like a sale receipt then life would certainly be a little easier. We had to abandon using the Lightspeed Retail purchase order forms since they lacked the basics that would be required for vendors to actually fulfill orders. An example would be the canned PO form list the item description. Most vendors need their SKU, style number, UPC/EAN, etc. to identify what's being ordered.
Our solution was to export all daily activity to local SQL via the API. Then I build my own Crystal Reports to present the vendors with something along the lines of a standard PO form.
Lightspeed as alot of nice features but does miss some basics one that would make my job a little easier
It is possible to customize the Purchase Order template to show UPC/EAN, custom SKU, and Manufacturer SKU (Customizing print templates), however, is necessary to change the code of the template. To add the categories and subcategories is a little bit complicated. We have available on the PO the item category ID, but not the description.
Ensure you have the print template code in Settings - Advanced Settings - Advanced Setup
Insert the following code found in this gist
within a <script> </script> tag after line 1621 of the following template:
You should find it inserts the full Category path on each line for you.
