What is Quick Stock Entry

Quick Stock Entry dialog in a sales order allows users to quickly add stock items to sales orders with the quantity required.

Notes:

  1. The amount entered in the Quick Stock Entry will override the default amount to add to a sales order set up in [ System Data | Stock | Level 2: Type ].
  2. Quick Stock Entry uses stock codes and not catalogue codes.
  3. Up and Cross Sell items will need to be added manually once the parent item has been added by focusing on the parent item and double clicking on the yellow band of the Up/Cross box in the top right of the sales order to load the Up/Cross Sell dialog.
  4. Quick stock entry is also available in Purchase Orders, Delivery Notes, Stock Adjustments and Consignments.
  5. Quick stock entry does not work when adding the barcode in the barcode button, the Other Ref or Catalogue code.
    Notes:
    • Except in the Stock Adjustments screen where both the barcode button and the Other Ref work.
    • The system will accept the first value it finds, so multiple barcodes in the system will result in potentially unexpected/undesirable results.
  6. Stock codes, for example on an email, can be copied Ctrl+C and pasted Ctrl+V into the Quick Stock Entry dialog. Make sure that you update the quantity of the items before pasting in the stock codes. A default quantity will be asked for but can be updated in the sales order either manually or by copying and pasting the quantities into the relevant column.
