Allocate stock to sales order before receipt

Gooday, Is there a way to allocate stock to a sales order prior to receipting the stock?

To provide an example: A customer gives me an order for some stock, I give him a Sales Order. I then order the stock from the supplier using a Purchase order, based on his order, and want to be able to reserve the stock from the point i place a purchase order with the supplier, so that it is not possible to sell the stock twice.

As far as i see it, i can only allocate stock to a sales order once i have receipted it.

Hello Lance, 

 

Products can be allocated to a Sales Order even when they are not in stock and have yet to be Received. In this instance, X amount will be allocated to your SO and this will bring the Available amount to negative(-) X amount while SOH remains at 0 (or whatever the current SOH is). Once you Receipt the products from your supplier, the available amount negative amount will be reversed to how much is available once the allocated amount has been met. 

 

Regards!

Kristina,

Can this be done if the purchase order was raised on the system before the sales order?
