Our largest SPS client has over a hundred stores each of which require a separate ASN and EDI Invoice. The autocomplete function for invoices pulls the item list from PO's which honestly makes no sense as the ASN contains what actually shipped and therefore what will be invoiced.

As it works now if say one style was undershipped from the factory and half the stores will be short shipped one or two items, autocomplete becomes almost useless as the amount of time trying to find the one or two quantities that need to be changed takes almost as long as just entering the invoice manually, nevermind if a set of orders gets split into two shipments which makes autocomplete completely useless.

Would it not make sense to autofill the invoices from the ASN's and not the PO's?

Hi Robert,

Thank you for sharing your idea!  I see you recently spoke with an analyst regarding a similar issue with Golfsmith, is that the trading partner you are referencing above? Once I hear back from you, I will further investigate and take a look at the setup to see if this is a change that an be made.

Good Morning Robert,

I just wanted to reach out to you regarding the status of this post.  Currently, I've reached out to our representative that works closely with Golfsmith to look into seeing if this is something they are willing to do as we need confirmation from them before moving forward.

Determining where the Invoice from sources from (either the purchase order or advanced ship notice) is something that was decided during the setup with Golfsmith and would require us to build that functionality out.  I will keep you updated on the status of this via our email thread.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Can there not be an option for both? Just a checkbox to choose between pulling invoice data from either PO or ASN's?

Hi Robert,

Should Golfsmith allow us to do this, what might happen is the invoice would remain an option from the next steps fro the PO and they would add an invoice option from next steps from the ASN.  That would allow for both options to be available.  I'm still waiting to hear back about this.
