Purchase Orders

The Purchase Orders store detailed information about all purchase orders (POs) for new computers, hardware equipment, software licenses, or other assets. You can use these purchase orders for any miscellaneous items that you want to order, such as non-computer items that you may be tracking and managing in the Hardware component.

You create Purchase Order records manually. Typically, using workflow actions, you can update these Purchase Orders and automatically create records for the newly received Assets and optionally Configuration Items (Computers, Hardware items, Software Licenses, and Consumables), when the purchased items are actually received.

To access the Purchase Orders grid, select Purchasing > Purchase Orders from the navigation menu.

The top pane of the open Purchase Order window displays the number, date, title, ID, and status of the Purchase Order.

Below the top pane, the following tabs are available:
