Sage 200c – Sales Order Statuses

Sage 200 has often lacked in its detail of Sales Order status, previously only offering ‘Live’, ‘On Hold’ or ‘Completed’. The status of ‘Live’ never gave enough detail for a user to easily identify where the order was within the Sales Order Process (was it Entered, Allocated, Despatched, Invoiced etc.) or what else was requiredContinue reading “Sage 200c – Sales Order Statuses”
