Feature Request: Reorder Points vs Reorder Amounts

emacgeeemacgee Member Posts: 33 ✭

It is very very common for our suppliers to only sell items in case quantities or minimum order quantities. However, we have not been able to identify any way to account for this in LSR and it causes us issues with many of our POs. We end up having to go through item by item in order to determine the quantity that we must order in and it's incredibly time consuming and inconvenient. One potential solution would be implementing the Reorder options that existed in LS Onsite. Onsite allowed for products to reorder to max OR reorder a specific amount. Having this feature in LSR would be extremely helpful. Otherwise, a custom field that was actually usable could solve this as well.

Has anyone come up with any resolutions to this issue for their own shop?

    I can see where this could be an issue. Luckily, our suppliers have similar case quantities. It would be nice, however, to have a "Minimum Order Quantity" or "Case Quantity" field under vendors.

    Suppliers often have discounted rates for case quantities as well. Having a "Case Quantity" under the vendors with a separate "Case Cost" would be extra nice.

    @CCFS_Zach Agreed, a case or MOQ field would also be very helpful. We've attempted to create that using Custom Fields but those seem to be functionally useless in LSR. Onsite was much more dynamic in regards to the ability to create and then use Custom Fields. However, we've found that adding Custom Fields does not mean they generate on exports or anywhere really. Can't use them if you can't export them or have them populate in other areas of LSR.
