We run a manufacturing business where specific tools are needed for parts. Sometimes, after a run, a tool might start to show signs of wear and need to be reworked for the next run. We have to send our tools to another company to get reworked. We don't send out tools to get reworked until another order comes in. It could be weeks or it could be months.
Is there any way to add something in QuickBooks that flags a part so we can get a pop up or some kind of notification that the part needs to be reworked when entering an order?
As a workaround you could enter the tool as an inventory part with no price but with a reorder trigger. Adding the tool to each job will reduce the tool "life" by one. At a certain point when entering job info you will get a small popup warning that it is time to reorder
Thanks for the suggestion. I think something like this may work. However, I am unfamiliar with the order triggers. Can you please explain in greater detail? Sorry for the ignorance and thank you in advance.
