Creating Purchase Orders
On Trade Trak, you can create and keep track of purchase orders which are specific to your jobs.
Accessing Purchase Orders
When in any job on Trade Trak, from the left-hand side navigation bar, you can access Purchase Orders by clicking on the ‘PO’ button.
Here, you will be able to view, download, share, edit, delete and create tasks from all previous PO’s.
If there are a large number of purchase orders listed under the one job, you can type keywords into the search bar or add filters to narrow the results.
Create a Purchase Order
To add a new purchase order, click on ‘Create’ in the top right corner of the page.
Mandatory fields of the purchase order are marked with an asterisk.
1. Supplier *
Select a previously used supplier from the drop-down menu, or add a new one by clicking ‘+’.
Underneath this, you also have the option to tick whether or not you would like a copy to be sent directly to the supplier.
2. Job *
Select from the drop-down menu what job you would like to assign the purchase order to.
If you have accessed the PO page directly from the job’s page, this section will autofill.
3. Status *
Select from the drop-down menu which status you would like to apply to the purchase order.
4. Issue On *
