Area P/O Tracking

Each time you add an area to a job, you can record the client’s purchase orders to it. As you post receivable invoices to centres in that area, Abio will include that invoice’s amount in the area’s invoiced amount.

The Area P/O Tracking report monitors how close you are to maxing out the purchase order amounts on any given job and area. You can query this report from time to time. You can also set it to alert you each time you sign on to Abio.

Selection Criteria
  • by file type ‘C’urrent, ‘H’istoric or both
  • job number – specific to job number or range of job numbers entered
  • area – specific to area or area range entered
  • fixed price job?
    • ‘A’ – all jobs
    • ‘N’ – not fixed price
    • ‘Y’ – fixed price only
  • maximum days since last activity – days since last payroll timesheet or billing invoice. Use 0 to disable. Use this field to exclude jobs with little or no activity.
  • percent remaining – on client’s purchase order. Use 0 to disable.
Alerts

This report allows you to set an alert. You may want to know when active, fixed price jobs are close to going over the maximum amount indicated on the client’s original purchase order (you can review how to set a job as fixed price here). To set up an alert that displays each time you sign on to Abio, do this:

  1. Click the Alert check box at the top of the report criteria screen.
  2. Select the full range of jobs and areas.
  3. Set ‘fixed price job?’ to ‘Y’.
  4. Set ‘maximum days’ to 0 if you want to see all jobs, or to a high number, like 100, if you want to exclude dormant jobs.
  5. Set ‘percent remaining’ to 5, if you want to catch jobs within 5% of maxing out.
  6. Select ‘OK’.

Abio will confirm you have an alert set.

Abio will check this report each time you sign on. If the report would produce one or more rows, Abio will display it automatically.
