Managing Back Order

  • 1.  Managing Back Order

    Posted 6 days ago

    Hi there

    Firstly,  I am new to Nav so please excuse my ignorance and possible silly question.

    I wonder if anyone has any advice on what the best way is to manage back orders on Nav.  

    At present I have a number of back orders and was wondering what the best way to manage these is. 

    Ideally when I enter a GRN it would be very helpful if it would highlight or notify me in some way which back orders have these items on it rather than me manually going through each order to find out what I can and cant fulfil.

    Also in some instances I might only want to part full the back order in order to ensure I spread stock evenly through customers.

    Apologise if I haven't explained this clearly but feel free to ask me questions.

    Any help would be greatly appreicated.

    Hi Suzanne,

    For the base application, the primary route for this would be from the Item Card you can use the Qty. on Sales Order lookup to review Sales Lines with that item currently outstanding.

    I would say it does sound like you may best be served with a customized Backorder Fulfillment report to suit your business's needs. Something like this could be scoped and implemented either in the application or using an add-on reporting tool like Jet Reports by your NAV/Busness Central partner.
