Component Window - Special Instructions Tab
|Top Previous Next|
The second tab on the Component Window is the Special Instructions Tab. Here any shipping, handling, fabrication, or other instructions for Vendors can be entered to print on Purchase and Work Orders.
Special Instructions: Enter any instructions or necessary communication to the Vendor in this field which will be printed on the Purchase Order after all of the Components are listed. These instructions are used to make comments to the Vendor about the entire Purchase Order. For example, you might be ordering a table and a glass top. The Special Instructions for the glass top may be to install it onto the tabletop. Special Instructions generally relate to the Purchase Order in its entirety or to the Vendor themselves. If instructions are specific to a single Component, you may consider placing them into the Component Description instead of using Special Instructions. If you have instructions that you enter repeatedly on Purchase Orders, you can store the instructions in the Remarks / Notes Glossary and retrieve them by clicking on the Search button while in the Special Instructions memo field.
PO Sidemark: The information recorded here will print under the Component on the Purchase Order. A Sidemark is used to tell a Vendor how to properly tag merchandise for delivery. This field will default to the Sidemark as defined in the Project Window – Defaults Tab but, of course, can be changed as needed.
Ship On or Before: This date will print on the top of the Purchase Order and represents the date by which you would like to have the Vendor ship the Component. If more than one Component has a Ship On Date, the earliest date will be used on the Purchase Order.
CFA Required: Check this option if you need your Vendor to send you a "Cutting for Approval". This is a sample of the product, usually a fabric swatch, before they fill the order. "CFA Required" will appear under the Component on the Purchase Order.
Workroom Special Instructions: Enter any instructions or necessary communication to the Workroom Vendor in this field which will be printed on the Work Order directly beneath the Component itself. These instructions are used to relay any information regarding the specific Component in order for the Workroom Vendor to properly fabricate the finished product for the Client. For example, if the Component is one of the fabrics necessary for fabricating a custom pillow, the Workroom Special Instructions may indicate the fabric is intended for the front panel and the desired repeat. If you have instructions that you enter repeatedly on Work Orders, you can store the instructions in the Remarks / Notes Glossary and retrieve them by clicking on the Search button while in the Workroom Special Instructions memo field.
Part of Work Order Heading: Select the “Part of Work order Heading” option to indicate that the Component essentially represents the overall fabricated merchandise rather than a constituent piece of the assembly on the Work Order. Since each Item must have one Component, it would be redundant to display the Workroom Instructions from the Item Window - Workroom Tab in the header of the Work Order then repeat it in the body of the document when the Component is listed. The Part of Work Order Heading will prevent the Component from being displayed in the body thereby avoiding any confusion to the Workroom Vendor.
Bar Code Labels (only visible if the optional Remote Data Collection has been purchased): The Bar Code Labels selection indicates to Design Manager how many tagging or claim labels should be printed for the Component following the creation of a new Purchase Order for the Component. There are three options for the Bar Code Labels:
