Backorder Hold Tag

The Back Order Hold Tag feature includes a set of System Configuration options to streamline filling of Backorders and creation of Ord-BOs. When an item on Backorder is marked to fill the User may be prompted to print a Backorder Hold Tag to attach to the filled units on the shelf. When the last Backordered item for a Sales Order has been filled, the user may be prompted to create an Ord-BO and to print the Sales Order.
