How do I track orders?
Print each order as it is taken and pile them in stacks of TO ORDER, ORDERED, RECEIVED, and CALLED. You may also want to track orders in OD Link so that you can quickly see the status of the job. Recording order numbers in OD Link also helps find old jobs in the future.
Record the job as ordered
1. Click "Y" to put the item on the "To Order" List (you may set the default "Y" in ITEMS detail window on the left side)
2. Click "+" to mark as "Ordered" - "To order is unchecked and the order date and vendor are recorded.
3. Enter the order number the vendor gives you
4. Notice the "Arrived" date box becomes green showing the job has not yet arrived
When the job arrives
Click the green "Arrived" box which dates the arrival.
Optional:record actual lab bill
You may replace the estimated lab bill (from ITEM details) with the actual bill if you want to track accurate material costs
