The reorder screen lists all the products that need to be reordered. Here, you can filter the reorder quantities by location (a) and/or by supplier (b). Each filter will remove any products that do not meet the criteria, narrowing down what will be added to the reorder purchase.
The "Create # purchase orders" button (c) automatically generates one purchase order for pair of supplier and locations (d). If more than one purchase order is created, then Finale will use the system generated order id. You will be redirected to the purchase order screen and each new purchase order will be listed in editable status. If only one purchase order is created (for example by selecting filters for a specific location and supplier), then the user is prompted to enter either an order ID or to use the system generated order ID.
The reorder list groups the products that need to be reordered for each by location and supplier, showing the total dollar value that needs to be reordered (d).
By default, Finale only looks at Supplier 1 when filtering. How do I use the reorder function with secondary suppliers?
The configuration of the suppliers for each product is described on the suppliers and products page.
The list of locations only includes locations that currently have at least one product that needs to be reorder. The list of suppliers only includes suppliers that currently have at least one product that needs to be reordered. If some locations or suppliers do not appear in the respective list then there are no reorders for those locations or suppliers.
Here is a general overview of Finale reordering.
