Edit Process Path dialog

Orders

The Orders section is where the user can change the order of the process stages within [ Sales Invoice ] Manager. This can be done by dragging and dropping the stages into an order that fits the user's business process. This is only applicable to stages that are boxed.

Note: the following stages are NOT editable:

  • Issue
  • Any of the Future stages
  • Manual Hold
  • Terms Hold

The checkbox columns are as follows:

  • Enabled: controls whether the orders will proceed through the corresponding Sales Invoice manager stage using the Move Next button. Stages that have not been enabled are displayed italicised in the stages tree and may have sales orders manually dragged into them. For example, you may not want all sales orders to be packed and have therefore not enabled the Packing Stage; however, should you exceptionally wish to record packing details of a consignment, you can still drag its sales order back to this stage in order to pack it into boxes.
    • BtnTriStYesXP.jpg TICKED: the stage is enabled and is included in the process path.
    • BtnTriStNoXP.jpg UNTICKED: the stage is disabled and is not included in the process path although it will be displayed unless the hidden by the users Profile.
      Notes:
      1. the following stages are mandatory:
        • Released
        • Staging
        • Issue
        • Future - Awaiting Date
        • Future - Awaiting Stock
      2. Disabled stages can be identified by italic font style in the Staged Processing Pane.
      3. Orders can be manually placed in disabled stages.
        Note: users must have the Sales Invoice - Drag & Drop user permission to move orders around the stages.
  • Allow Edit: controls whether the sales orders can be edited whilst they occupy the corresponding stage (the relevant stages are displayed when running Health Check).
WARNING icon
WARNING: If you have disabled a stage, please ensure that 'Allow Edit' is unticked.

WARNING: Process Rules are applied each time the Sales Invoice manager is loaded. Careful consideration needs to be given to which of the Sales Invoice stages the rules will be applied.

Return Stages

The Return Stages section is where the user can change the order of the returns stages within [ Sales Invoice ] Manager. This can be done by dragging and dropping the stages into an order that fits the user's business process.
Note: this is only applicable to stages that are boxed; the Issue stage is NOT editable.

  • Move Stock on Issue
    • BtnTriStYesXP.jpg TICKED: the system will only move stock when the Return is Issued. When the user creates a Return Note the Move Stock on Process will be BtnTriStNoXP.jpg unticked.
    • BtnTriStNoXP.jpg UNTICKED: the system will move stock when the Return is processed. When the user creates a Return Note the Move Stock on Process will be BtnTriStYesXP.jpg ticked.
      Note: the Move Stock on Process button will always take precedence over the Move Stock on Issue.

Misc Options

  • Orders must be Shipped: also known as "Enforce Shipping". The system will not allow any orders to move the past the Shipping stage without being shipped.
  • Orders must be Packed: If ticked then all items on an order must be completely packed in at least one box. An order that is not fully packed cannot move beyond the Packing Stage.
  • Invoicing orders must be printed: also known as "Enforce Invoicing". The system will not allow any orders to move the past the Invoicing stage by use of the Move Next function without first printing the Invoice.
    Note: this option does not stop users from dragging and dropping an order past the Invoice stage.
  • Pick Sheet must be printed: the system will warn the user if they use the Move Next function without picking an order.
    Note: this option does not stop users from dragging and dropping an order past the Picking stage.
  • Pick Sheet Combined must be printed: the system will warn the user if they use the Move Next function without printing a combined pick sheet.
    Note: this option does not stop users from dragging and dropping an order past the Picking stage.
  • Manual releases stay released: orders that are manually released from a futures stage will not be moved back into the same stage by rules being automatically re-applied.
