Accounting Ideas

Could you add a option to create purchase orders.

When i order stuff that's on a 30day credit account they ask for a purchase order with a order number then when item arrives it has the invoice which can then be but in as a purchase. Would also be good if you could convert a purchase order to a purchase. 

Just a idea, would help me and maybe lots others to.


Many thanks

    The ability to create purchase orders within Sage should come as a basic function - it would greatly reduce the amount of work / time involved in inputting supplier invoices. Purchase Orders currently have to be done from a different system, making double the work

    I've been actively looking at different account software as this is a basic feature on all of your other competitors, this would be a game changer if this could happen ASAP

    I also have asked this question and would agree that it would be an asset.

    This is a deal breaker for us - all your competitors have this basic function, will this ever be added to business cloud, no one at sage seems to want to answer this question?

    Agree with this idea - would help our business a lot. We're looking at alternative systems now, and actually considering moving to a Sage competitor. So get moving quickly on this one Sage!

    The PO is a crucial part of the process. When will this be added?

    It does not make sense to have an online system connecting the whole company with all the other features if you have to use another system to issue purchase orders. I use 2 versions now. SA and UK. SA has the feature. An upgrade to UK will be fantastic. Please add the PO's to UK.

    Its great that Sage now has a workable stock control system but to add a purchase order system would make it the complete package. At this moment in time we are having to look elsewhere for something that should really be a part of our Sage system. Please implement soon!!!!

    This definitely needs to be added as a service. To be able to have your orders and invoices in 1 place really would make life easier to track payments and goods purchased. Other softwares do already offer this. Sage seems a little outdated.

    Purchase order could be a simple stand alone document, require a Goods received note (GRN) to add to stock, potentially convert to purchase invoice or require autoentry to match lines with GRN.

    Yes this definitely needs to be added as more and more companies are using purchase orders and is something we would like to move forward with. as said other competitors already have it.

    Like the look of the product but it's unusable for us without Purchase Orders feature. Can't understand why it's been overlooked.

    I also can't believe this isn't an option - I can do everything else, send a quote, invoice the customer, enter the invoice from the supplier - but not actually send the supplier a purchase order?

    Would be very simple to create PO and switch it as provider invoice. Lot and lot of time will be saved.

    This would help when part orders of stock are delivered

    It would be brilliant if you could create purchase quotes rather than draft same way you have SQ and SI (PQ and PI). So you could could link a SQ with a PQ then convert them both if the order would go ahead.

    Hopefully you could create a PQ from a SQ which would be ideal the same as creating a PI off of a SI. One that you can do straight away and another for a future order. Obviously we need to create a PI from a SI but thinking of the next step as well. Thoughts?

    I still can't believe online accounting has no purchase order option. I requested this 2 years ago. It should be really simple - just like a quote that you convert to a Purchase invoice. This is one of the most frustrating things - it makes it difficult to track purchase orders sent to suppliers.

    Surely this is a basic function that should be included - Other software does!
