The reorder screen lists all the products that need to be reordered. The reorder screen allows you to filter the list to a single location or supplier (or both) for which the reorder will be generated. The order groups the products that need to be reordered for each pair of location and supplier, showing the total dollar value that needs to be reordered.
The "Create N purchase orders" button automatically generated one purchase order for pair of location and supplier in the list. If more than one purchase order is created, then Finale always use the system generated order id and shows the newly generated purchase orders on the purchase order list screen. If exactly one purchase order is created (for example by selecting filters for a specific location and supplier), then the user is prompted to enter an order ID or accept the system generated order ID. After completing that step, the purchase order can be edited manually as necessary once created, just like any other purchase order.
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.
