PURCHASING INBOX

The Purchasing Inbox sub-module is a listing of parts to be purchased. When purchase requests are made from within the Part Requests Listing sub-module, those requests are sent to the Purchasing Inbox sub-module where the Purchaser responds to them.

There are three key hyperlinks on the Purchasing Inbox listing: Last Vendor (view last closed PO), Req (view Part Request), and JC (view Job Card details).
