Stocky and Receiving stock

I can't be the only one with this issue.  Apparently in stocky - you have to recreate a purchase order for the items that will come in another shipment and another invoice.  So if you get multiple shipments for the same Purchase order - you have to remove the items that were not on the invoice and create a new purchase order to put those items in.   IT is very rare that a supplier will ship you perfectly a purchase order.  Why is this not basic stocky???

We are currently using QB to build our Purchase Orders, mostly because the company/person we hired to set up our shop did a really terrible job of it, so none of our items in Shopify/Stocky have the manufacturers item numbers in. As soon as we get that part sorted out the issue then just comes down to the terrible design in Stocky.

I liked your idea of building the PO in Stocky and copying it then removing any items that didn't arrive, and merging them together after printing the receiving. Quite a shame it's taking the dev team this long to even add a basic filter option like this. Disappointing for sure.

 

Edited to add: on top of being forced to download the PO every time instead of just giving us a print button. Who are these devs?

We also use QB to print tags because the Shopify folks can't seem to figure out why Stocky won't print labels built with Dymo Connect v 1.4.3.131. They're still operating on 1.3.2.18.

Thanks @jimpandaz for posting this. I have been trying (without success) to get Lightspeed to give me a local referral to a merchant that has the volume we do and the number of skus we do, to ensure that if we jump ship away from the pain points in Shopify they won't be replicated at where we land. Right now it looks like there are no affordable options. We are saving up to be able to go back to using SmartVendor, but it's a painful three party system that is expensive (and I'm used to Shopify nickle and diming us to death so you can see how expensive it must really be!).  I'm sad to see that Lightspeed also hasn't fixed this. There seems to be NO actual omni channel merchant that actually understands retail AND online. The marriage of the two is still very rocky.
