I wish there was a feature that a PO could be tied to multiple jobs. For example, if a tech has 4 jobs on his schedule, he can go to the supply house and purchase all the parts he thinks he will need for those four jobs in one trip.

This happens frequently for us. If you enter the invoice from the supply house as a PO, you can only attached it to one job. There should be a way to allocate how much of the invoice pertains to each job.

We do this by adding a + after the vendor invoice number so it is under the same invoice but can be allotted to different jobs

Example: Job # 1 = invoice number 1234

Job #2 = invoice number 1234+

Job #3 = invoice number 1234+2

Job #4 = invoice number 1234+3

This is our work around

Right. Purchase things at the supply house all in one trip, but do it on 4 different PO's. That is how our guys do it. Separate purchase for each job so each job either has a receipt or a packing slip.

Each PO should pertain to ONLY ONE JOB - that's how POs are supposed to work; the PO is supposed to tie back to the JOB, not the purchase - how else can you tell which amounts are supposed to be billed to each of the jobs?
