No more hassle with manually inputting addresses from the Create Sales Order or Create Estimate into the Purchase Order ship to field, required in earlier versions if materials were dropped shipped to the customer site. This new feature is included in the Premier, Accountant and Enterprise (including Enterprise Accountant) versions of QuickBooks 2016 desktop.
This new feature can be accessed from the Create Sales Order or Create Estimates window by clicking on the Create Purchase Order icon. The Create Purchase Order Based on the Sales Transaction window displays, place a check-mark in the Drop ship to customer box.
When placing a check-mark in the Drop Ship to Customer on the Create Purchase Order based on Sales Transaction window:
- Leave the check-box blank if the materials being purchased are to be delivered directly to the warehouse of the company purchasing the materials.
- Place a check-mark in the check-box when the materials being purchased are to be dropped shipped directly to the customer site.
Once selected, QuickBooks will remember your selection and will default the same choice the next time a Purchase Order is created from these transactions.
