The Reorder Report is one of the most powerful reports in Unleashed; it shows every product and its current quantity on hand, and whether there are any pending purchases, sales, assemblies or transfers. The available amount is calculated from these quantities and a reorder amount is then suggested. This report also enables you to view the availability of all of your products, along with their associated Supplier - and with the relevant stock level information. This report is ideal to see if your stock is running low and you need to replenish stock.
You can access the Reorder Report via the Reports | Purchases | Reorder Report.
You can select to:
(a) reorder all products with low stock by clicking the Reorder button, or,
(b) choose selected products at the line level before clicking on the Reorder button to create a purchase order.
You can still add extra lines to or remove lines from the created purchase orders, where necessary.
The action cog gives you the ability to bulk select products and create assemblies, purchase orders, or transfer stock between warehouses.
Additionally, you can:
- Review products on purchase (Parked, Placed and Costed Purchase Orders) and their next delivery date.
- Drill down into the product transactional details by status of Quantity on Hand, On Order, In Assembly, On Transfer, or On Purchase.
You can filter the report by Product, Product Type, Suppliers, Warehouse or Stock Level. The grid displays your current minimum or maximum stock levels as well as suggested replenishment quantities.
The value of the Reorder Report
Min Stock is used to specify how much available SOH should be kept in the warehouse.
Both the Min and Max Stock Level are used to work out how much to reorder to restore the warehouse to the minimum level or maximum level of stock.
If there is no Max Stock Level, the suggested reorder quantity will be the quantity to meet the Min Stock Level.
If a Max Stock Level is specified, then we suggest a reorder quantity to match the Max Stock Level instead.
Note: Calculations are only performed if a Min Stock Level is specified (no Minimum specified is like specifying a zero level)
If neither the Min or Max Stock Levels are specified, the reorder quantity will be calculated based on stock allocated (less any quantities on purchase orders plus the current SOH).
The report also has low (Under Min) and high (Over Max) stock alerts that can be set if required.
