2) Creating Material Orders

After pressing ’Create a Material Order’, the creation screen should automatically pop up. If it doesn’t, you can press ‘Create’ in the top right corner of the Material Orders page.

On the creation page, there are a number of fields you need to fill out before you can send off your Material Order. All mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk.

Material Order Templates

If you're likely to need this exact or similar material order again in the future, you're able to save it by clicking 'Save as New Template'.
Once you click this box, you will need to enter a name for the template so that it's easier to find again in the future.

To load a previously saved material order, click on the 'Select a Template' box and select the right one from the drop-down menu.
