Update Default Cost from Recent Purchase Order

It would be extremely helpful and eliminate a ton of manual entry time if there was an option to update the Default Cost of an Item based upon the current Purchase Order. I'm surprised this is not already an option?!

Optimally, it would be great to have a checkbox to the side of each item on a Purchase Order to indicate whether the Default Cost should be updated based upon the current price.

Our costs are continually changing/updating, but to have that option so we don't have to update the PO cost price manually and then have to manually update the Default Cost pricing at the Inventory Item level would be extremely helpful.

Surely I am not the only one

    We moved across from Lightspeed Onsite a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately the more we use Retail the more we find it pretty inadequet as an inventory managment system...

    This should be a very basic, essential feature!

    We would be interested in seeing this implemented as a checkbox option per PO or beside the "Add Received To Inventory" button, so that it only updates what is being received and not what has already been received or is still on the way. Some of our suppliers bill us in a different currency and we'd like the default cost to remain the same for those. For our Canadian suppliers though, this would save a lot of time, as we go into each product to manually update it. Thanks!

    I have to echo this sentiment of first comment "It would be extremely helpful and eliminate a ton of manual entry time if there was an option to update the Default Cost of an Item based upon the current Purchase Order. I'm surprised this is not already an option?!"

    Incredible that this doesn't exist. Makes the PO system minimally functional.Any way to expedite adding a feature?

    I have also posted about this in the past, in fact i suggested having a way to add basic rules to default costs: in my case it would be that if the new cost default cost, then change it, if the current PO cost is less, then leave it as is (as i most likely got this item on a promotion and will not necessarily have the same deal next order). But a simple check box by each item AND one for the entire PO would also suit.

    I definitely agree that, as is, the PO feature lacks key features to really be a time saver

    Fully agree.

    We often place POs from one of our suppliers that has hundreds of line items in it, and unfortunately the cost of many of those items change regularly depending on what our supplier paid for them and what the US/CAD exchange rate is currently.

    It takes a TON of time to adjust the cost of each item in the PO and it takes EVEN MORE time to then manually adjust the Default Cost of each item in each item's page.

    Having a checkboxes alongside each item in the PO that would let us adjust the Default Cost in each desired item's page without having to open each of those pages would be ideal.
