The merge PO functionality combines the lines from 2 or more separate Purchase Orders. This is done to match an upcoming invoice with an order that might have been made in multiple parts.

The Merge PO functionality must be turned on for your organisation

The option to Merge Purchase Orders on the PO page can be found in the Actions menu

Only Purchase Orders that

  • Are issued to the same supplier
  • Are raised by the same user
  • Have not been received yet

Can be merged.

The new merged PO contains the individual lines from the original Purchase Orders. The old constituent Purchase Orders will be automatically closed.
