Allocate a pending order to a purchase order (Order planning)
For a pending order, stock is not reserved and delivered automatically. In case of a blanket order, you will always complete the pending order manually. In case of a pending order caused by a stock shortage, you usually will want to make sure that a reservation is made on a purchase order, so you will be able to deliver the pending order. In this case you can manually or automatically allocate a purchase order to the pending order (line).
To manually allocate a pending order to a purchase order:
- You manually allocate the pending order from the pending order itself. This works in the same way as the normal procedure for allocating sales lines to a purchase line.
Automatic allocation is only possible if you use the Order planning function. Using that function, you can also allocate manually.
