Purchase order reporting

Started by Paul Wilcock -   in Accounting

If have recommended a client to Xero but see the need for a report or information which is not currently readily available. The client, a haulage contractor will subcontract work and use the purchase order function to process this. At the end of each calendar month the client will need to know the value of the outstanding purchase orders so that it can accrue for these in their management accounts.

There does not seem to be a report available which will be frustrating for them. I can only think they they will have to scroll down the page and add these up manually which seems silly in a computerised system.

Can anyone offer any advice and does anyone share my frustration with this ?

Hi team - sorry no updates to give here! A lot of work is being done around reports, with the current focus on new Contact Reports, Reporting Dashboard, Report Templates for US & UK, and custom columns for financial reports. Understand that's not what you need here - just wanted to give some background on why we're not doing what you've asked for here.

If plans are made, you'll be the first to know.
