Purchase Control manages products your outlets can interact with for both ordering and stocktaking.
Purchase Control is automatically activated when your invoices for specific outlets have been processed. Suppose you have two outlets—Outlet A and Outlet —and you upload an invoice containing a product, "Apple" to Outlet A. When this invoice is processed, "Apple" will have its Purchase Control will be activated for Outlet A only, but not Outlet B:
Outlet A will now be able to order "Apple" in the New Order page, and "Apple" will also be available for stocktaking, appearing in Outlet A's Stocktake (Storage Area) page.
If you would like Outlet B to also be able to interact with "Apple", you can activate its Purchase Control setting. Here's how:
1. Go to My Product.
2. Click on Purchase Control on the top right corner.
3. Select your supplier that carries the product from the supplier dropdown list at the top.
4. Check the box under that corresponds to your outlet and product to active Purchase Control.
Similarly, if you would like to restrict an outlet from interacting with any product, you may uncheck the Purchase Control setting accordingly.
