Business value

When shipping items from one of your vendors directly to your customer by using the Drop Shipment or Special Order features, your salespeople no longer need to remember which items can be sent this way but can have Business Central handle that for them.

Feature details

You can now define for an item that it can be sent from your vendor to your customer directly by filling in the Purchasing Code field on the item card. The Purchasing Code field on sales document lines for the item is then filled in with the selected method—for example, DROP SHIPMENT.

Entering Drop Shipment in the Purchasing Code field
