Each item in the project Bill of Materials will have an item status associated with it. The default status will be unordered. Go through and mark items status or add to Purchase Orders to have the status automatically updated based on the order status in the PO.
Change an Item Status
To update the item status, go to the item status view and select an item by using a checkbox. Then in the actions dropdown, you can update the item status. You can do this for one or multiple products.
You can also change within the Bill of Materials (BOM) by clicking on a product and changing the item status.
Make sure you use the filters to select multiple products at once. This makes it easy to change the status for all items in a particular phase, brand, supplier, category, location, or system.
