If the supplier you are working on is a Fixed Cycle supplier, meaning that they need to order on a specific day of the week and at fixed frequencies every time they order, you can set its order cycle using the Fixed Cycle Feature in Supplier Settings.
Locate the Fixed cycle processing button in Supplier Settings; this is the area we will utilize to set up the proper fixed order cycle. (Not Fixed Cycle is the default)
For the Order frequency field you must determine how often you will order from this supplier by clicking on the drop down window and selecting one of the following:
· Every week
· Every 2 weeks
· Every 3 weeks
· Every 4 weeks
· Every 5 weeks
For the Day of the week field you must enter what day of the week you will place the order on by clicking on the drop down window and selecting the day of the week:
You must determine the Next order date you expect to approve the next order from this supplier. This helps the system to know when the fixed order cycle will start. Click on the date box and a date picker will appear for you to select the date.
For the change to take place immediately, you will have to recalculate the order.
