Adagio Tip of the Month: OE Minimum Order Quantity

Oct 13, 2022

Question: We sell some items that require any customer to buy a minimum quantity – for example they must order 3 (or 4 or more) of an item.
Is there a way to prevent a data clerk from entering 1 or 2 of an item on an order?

Answer: There isn’t any way in Order Entry, except perhaps setting up an alternate Unit of Measure, but you could keep a “real time” GridView Workspace open that would highlight any order rows where the minimum order quantity is not met. This won’t prevent the order from happening, but will at least catch it as it happens.
