How to send orders to subcontractors from Business Central?

In Business Central a Subcontracting Order is made as a Purchase Order with specific information on the Purchase Order Line.

This is what happens in the video

You can send it just like a normal Purchase Order.

On this supplier, I made an Order Line.

Let’s see it.

It is the line with the painting job, and it’s item number 1000, which is the number of my finished item, which the subcontractor doesn’t know, so, we must tell them, what the job is all about.

I will just print and send this, as I do normally with Purchase Orders, and I must make sure that my vendor understands, that this is an operation and not an item number, like the bike.

The Purchase Line looks like a normal Purchase Order.

In real life, it is a capacity I buy, but it’s handled like a normal Purchase Order.

In this step in the process, we just send the order.

Only when we receive it, we must be aware on how to handle it.
