Article Summary


Joblogic provides the ability to create Supplier Purchase Orders for a job from within the back-office.

The function allows for Supplier PO’s to be raised against a job, and for the materials on that PO to appear within the Job Costing screen once they have been marked as delivered.

This user guide will detail how to raise and use a Supplier PO within Joblogic.

Raising a Supplier PO

Navigate to the Job the PO needs to be raised against, then click History > Supplier Purchase Orders.

Select the green Add Supplier Purchase Order button.
