When we create a purchase order based off of a work order (a very convenient feature in and of itself), we always have multiple instances of identical components from different products (in our case, flour, sugar, eggs, baking soda, etc.) We need to combine these lines into a single entry for each item before the order can be used. It would be great if the conversion to a purchase order would also consolidate identical items into one line. I think this would also be useful in other industries which use raw materials, such as furniture manufacturers, metal foundries, clothing manufacturers, and greenhouses.
If this is not implemented, it would be useful at least if the purchase order would be alphabetized.
Just wanted to let you know that the beta we've just released addresses the reorder suggestion that you had mentioned and should consolidate your items on the purchase order once created. Please check it out here: https://getsatisfaction.com/inflow_in... and let us know if you have any feedback!
