if you are asking about the SKU showing on the printed PO

it will not show

there has been multiple requests over the past two years or more to enable the field for printing - no response that means anything

Purchase Orders - How do i get SKU to show up on my purchase orders?

Hello there, @jmcconnico

 

Welcome to the Community. To get the SKU show up in the purchase order, you'll need to turn on this feature in the Account and Settings page. Here's how: 

 

  1. In the Gear icon, click Account and Settings.
  2. Go to the Sales tab, then go to the Products and Services section.
  3. Mark the box to Show SKU column.
  4. Click Save, then Done.

Next, let's enable the SKU option on the Standard template. Here's how: 

 

  1. In the Gear icon, choose Custom Form Styles.
  2. Search the Standard or Master template, then click Edit.
  3. Go to the Content tab, then click the middle part of the template.
  4. Click the SKU option.
  5. Hit Done

This will now show the SKU column on your purchase order.

This doesn't solve the problem of showing the SKU on the printed PO. I don't understand why it's not in the printed PO. That's probably the most important part of the sending the PO to the vendor. W/o the sku, they cannot enter the order.

 

Please provide an option to displaying the SKU column w/o using a workaround like adding the sku to the "description".
