One of the projects we planned for this year is ‘Line splitting for sales orders’.
The goal here is to give better insight in what the original sales order looked like. In Exact Globe Next a number of processes can result in a ‘split order line’:
- Partial delivery
- Partial delivery due to insufficient stock
- Return without replacement
- Return with replacement
- Serial/batch number pre-assignment
- Exploded item
- Order cancellation via completion
The result is that in the sales order entry screen a line is split into several other sales order lines. It is hard to see what the original sales order looked like.
One of the things we will do it to store the original line number in the sales order line table as soon as a line is split. This will enable you to see the sales order in a ‘grouped by original line number’ view. For purchase orders a similar solution was developed already a while ago.
The question now is whether this solution meets your requirements. From various different sources we get the requirement to ‘group by default’ when opening a sales order. This would result in not seeing the details right away; you would have to push a button for that.
I would like to know what your requirements are for this project. Please let me know by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
