Supplier Integration item import in Purchase Order creation
You can now import items not in the local database as part of the Purchase Order creation process.
If you are creating a Purchase Order to receive stock as it arrives in store, you can scan items directly into the Purchase Order and if not in your local database and you are integrated with that supplier in SIM, the item will be found and give you the opportunity to import as part of the Purchase Order creation process.
When in the Purchase Order screen, select 'Quick Scan Items':

Once you have scanned all the items from the order, you can process the Purchase Order in the normal manner.
