Purchase orders are issued to vendors to place orders for supplies. Often times, a Purchase Order is modified to changes in demand and supply such as quantity, due dates and items. Further revision will occur. To track and manage the change, we use the PO Change process in Syteline.

In this quick tutorial, we will learn to manage PO order revisions in SyteLine ERP, and to print the revised Purchase Order.


Let’s start.

  • When a Purchase Order (PO) is first changed to “Ordered”, the change number is zero (0). This means that zero revisions have been made.
  • The state diagram below illustrates the change status of a PO.

  • Let’s assume that we need to revise some of the details in the PO lines, such as due date, ordered quantity, and cost.
  • After revising the PO lines, click save. Then open Purchase Orders form.
  • The Change Status field, and the Change number are highlighted below. Since we are doing revision for the first time, the Change number will be 1.

  • The Change Status is now “Opened”. As the name implies, it needs some kind of ‘closure’. The process is continued by another authority, usually a colleague or the team leader, who needs to approve the revision.
  • To do so, open PO Change Orders form to view the changes. If the revision is approved, update the Change Status to “Finalized”.

  • You can also print Change Order Detail Report to view the complete changes made by the user in the report. Change Order Detail Report in StyeLine ERP
  • Now, a revised Purchase Order needs to be sent to the vendor so as to let them know of the changes. To do so, open Change Order Report form to look at the revisions.
  • You can print the entire PO or just the revisions.

    • Please note that clicking on the “Preview” doesn’t update the Change Order Status. Click on “Print” to complete the change PO process.
    • When this is done, the Change Status in the PO will now be “Printed”.
