5. Understanding the Report
Once you are in the report whether that by viewing or exporting, you will see a breakdown of information.
Depending on what filters have been selected, it will show the Product details along with information on the sales and and stock.
The Cover is a suggestion the system makes based upon how many sales you have had during the time period and when the system thinks you will run out of stock.
It is worth noting that this may not be 100% as it goes off a time frame.
6. Raising a Purchase Order Through the Report
One of the useful things about this report is that you can place a PO (Purchase Order) based on the information such as when the system thinks you will run out of stock.
This is done by toggling the dropdown for the range, which will then show you the product SKU along with the option to order a QTY (Quantity).
Once this has been entered, a PO will automatically be created, however it will still need your authorisation prior to sending.
