I have found myself, several times, while entering a Purchase Invoice needing to add a new inventory item. We don’t generally work with POs to suppliers so I haven’t had to enter the item well in advance of receipt.
Right now it appears that I have to leave the Purchase Invoice entirely, go add the inventory item and then start all over again with the Purchase Invoice. This makes things take longer than I’d like - especially if it happens several items into a Purchase Invoice. It also takes time to check every item in a Purchase Invoice against inventory before I even start entering it.
It would be great if there was a way to add a new inventory item directly while in a Purchase invoice - either to be able to have both an Inventory ‘window’ open at the same time as a Purchase Invoice or by some sort of ‘popup’ that would allow an inventory item to be entered to then add to the Purchase invoice.
