Review Existing Allocations

Auto Allocate Where Enough Stock

Once selected the system will only allocate stock to Sales Orders where the whole sales order can be filled. If the whole sales order can’t be filled, then nothing will happen,

Stock that has been allocated won't be overridden thus you have to use Reset All Allocations.

Auto Allocate Oldest First

Allocate the quantities available to the oldest orders first. Please note that if there is quantities filled in the On Order Allocated column then this will be taken into consideration

E.g the oldest orders Quantity Left To Invoice is 30  and in the On Order Allocated column there is 10 then SI+ will only allocate 20 (20+10=30) thus if you don't want this to happen use the Reset All Allocations menu option or the SI+ Set 0 buttons on the form.

You can use the Reset All Allocations option to reset all quantities allocated.

You can use the SET 0 button to reset individual items.

Reset All Allocations

This option will zero all stock already allocated as well as On Order Allocated

Combined allocation needed.

Stock quantities and On Order quantities added up together. In the example above SOH=231 and On Order =8 (239 in total). You have allocated only 0 items and 0 On Order items . Thus SOH + On order = 239 and you have allocated 0  Thus you can still allocate 239 (231+8)


Please make sure that there are no negative amounts in the Combined Allocation Needed column. You can filter for negative amounts. Change the Stock Allocated and/or On Order Allocated.
