Is there a place to note Customer PO# in Sales Invoice? (aside from comment field)

I have a use case where Items are sold in a retail environment to both average retail customers and business customers. We need to enter customers PO# information in Sales Invoice, have it appear on their receipt and to be recorded as part of the Sales Invoice record.

Does this already exist in the Sales Invoice and I am just not finding it somehow?

This is a common request from our customers to have their PO information associated with their transaction.

Can anyone offer how they may have done this?

Is there a field that need to be un-hidden?


Customer PO Details is already a part of Sales Invoice

The section is just after accounting dimension section.

Or I may missing your actual request ?

Nope. You didn’t miss anything. On my new v13.3.1 system it is not there.

I will have to dig around in the “Sales Invoice” definition record and see if it has been somehow hidden.

Thanks for letting me know it is there. At least I know I am not chasing something that doesn’t exist. That means I just need to dig more. :slightly_frowning_face:

This is ERPNext v13.3.1

If it’s not visible I’d suggest checking via Customize Form to make sure it’s not hidden or a display condition is perhaps set.

For “Submitted” documents, ERPNext likes to hide empty data fields. So “Customer’s Purchase Order” will be visible on the web page during creation. But probably hidden afterwards unless you entered a value there.

Go to Sales Invoice customize form. Remove eval and tick allow on submit. This may work.
