Note: Even if your company is set up for auto-creation of purchase orders, Sage 50 will not automatically create POs for recurring customer invoices. Instead, you will have to manually generate POs for any inventory that you need to reorder as a result of recurring invoices.

To auto create purchase orders from work tickets in Sage 50, the following criteria must be met:

  • Each item must be set up in Maintain Inventory Items with a preferred vendor.
  • The user who is entering the transactions listed below must have access rights to add Purchase Orders.
  • The quantity ordered of one or more of the items must cause the quantity available as of the transaction date to fall below minimum stock levels.

If these conditions are met and your company is set up to auto create purchase orders in Sage 50. Sage 50 will automatically create a purchase order each time a work ticket is saved. In addition, to ensure that auto-creation works most effectively, each item in Maintain Inventory Items should be set up with a minimum stock level and minimum reorder quantity.

  • stock

Units of Measure (U/M) in Sage 50

How do you use units of measure in Sage 50? What are units of measure in Sage 50 used for?

The Maintain Units/Measures window allows you to set up new units/measures (U/M), other than the Stocking U/M, for purchasing or selling inventory items. In this window, you can set up new units/measures, change the ID for, and delete existing units/measures.

Note: You can access this window only if you have selected the option to Enable Multi-Packs and buying and selling items in different units/measures in the Inventory Item Defaults window.

If you purchase or sell items in bulk or in multi-pack units, create new units/measures to accommodate bulk sales or purchases. This saves you time because you won’t have to enter a new item for each unit/measure of an item that you buy or sell. By creating a new unit/measure based on the stocking unit, you can purchase and sell the multi-pack unit and the single units contained in the multi-pack.

You can set up as many units/measures as you need, but you can only assign two U/Ms to an inventory item: one for sales and one for purchases.

Item Multi-Packs in Sage 50

How do you use item multi-packs in Sage 50? What are item multi-packs in Sage 50 used for?

The Item Multi-Packs window allows you to assign additional units/measures to an inventory item, thereby creating a multi-pack. You can access this window by selecting the U/M button, which is located next to the Stocking U/M field in the Maintain Inventory Items window. In the Item Multi-Packs window, you can do the following:

  • change the Stocking U/M
  • allow items to be purchased or sold in a unit/measure other than the Stocking U/M, or multi-pack
  • assign a U/M, weight, and UPC/SCC code for multi-packs that you purchase
  • assign a U/M, weight, and UPC/SCC code for multi-packs that you sell

You can assign two units/measures in addition to the Stocking U/M to an inventory item: one for purchases and one for sales. When you purchase or sell items in units/measures that you have set up in Maintain Units/Measures, the subsequent item, when purchased or sold, is referred to as a multi-pack. Multi-Packs in Sage 50 are simply any inventory item that has been assigned a unit/measure other than the Stocking U/M. The resulting item, usually a box or a pack, contains more than one stocking unit of the inventory item.

Because you can only assign two units/measures to an inventory item, you should select the unit/measure in which you usually purchase or sell the item. For example if you buy in bulk but sell in single units, select the bulk unit in this window. After you have assigned purchasing and sales units/measures to an inventory item, you will be able to select the U/M for line items on the following windows: Quotes, Sales Orders, Sales/Invoicing, Receipts, Credit Memos, Select For Purchase Orders, Purchase Orders, Purchase/Receive Inventory, and Payments.
