Welcome to ZapInventory. We will learn through this tutorial to delete "Purchase Orders."

You must know this function as you may require it in conditions, for example, order cancellation, order return, or any possible reason.

Purchase order

A purchase order, or PO, is an official document issued by a buyer committing to pay the seller for the sale of specific products or services to be delivered in the future. The advantage to the buyer is the ability to place an order without immediate payment.

Follow the steps below to delete a purchase order:

Step 1: Select "Manage Purchases" from the Navbar and click on "Purchase Orders."

Step 2: Navigate toward the actions column by clicking on the arrow button (as shown).

Step 3: Click on the dotted button (as shown) given in front of every purchase order within the column titled "Actions."

Step 4: Click on "delete" to remove the needed "Purchase Order" from the order list.


The purchase order will not delete if it is marked as "Received."

Purchase orders marked as paid will not delete.

By following these simple steps, you can remove unnecessary orders quickly and efficiently, ensuring that your inventory management process is optimized for your business needs.
