Dynamic Reorder Points and Automated Replenishment
Note: This feature is available only to our High Growth and Premium plans. See Plans and Pricing.
Reorder Date = Stockout + Awaiting - Lead - Safety
|Stockout||Days of available inventory (available units ÷ sales velocity)||Auto-Calculated|
|Awaiting||Days of supply expected on open purchase orders (awaiting units ÷ sales velocity)||Auto-Calculated|
|Lead||Days expected between opening a PO, submitting to supplier, and receiving stock||User-Defined|
|Safety||The minimum number of days of inventory (safety stock) you wish to maintain||User-Defined|

If you already have a draft purchase order with this supplier, you can add the line item(s) to the draft:
