Using the "Order proposal e-mail" app, it is possible to define that e-mails with an order proposal are sent at regular intervals to the xentral user. If the stock quantity is lower than the minimum stock, the system checks which quantity is lacking compared to the minimum stock. In addition, the system checks whether scheduled articles from open orders are sufficiently in stock to process the orders.
Via App Center → Order proposal e-mail, the e-mail address to send the order proposals to can be stored.
- Activate module → Check to use the app
- Recipient for e-mail from cronjob → Enter e-mail address the order proposal will be sent to. To enter multiple addresses, use a semicolon
- Notifications only on working days → Check to receive emails only on working days
Sending e-mails automatically is done via the "Order proposal e-mail" process starter. To do this, a new process starter must be created, activated and have the correct parameter.
In the following example, a new process starter is created: It always runs on Mondays at 5 p.m. (17:00) and sends the e-mail with the order proposal, if there are positions in it.
- Description → Enter "Order proposal e-mail" here
- Type → Select the desired type from the drop-down menu
- Weekday → Set the appropriate day of the week
- Start time → Enter the start time and the start date
- Last Run → Enter the time as well as the date of the last execution
- Type → Select the type "Cronjob" from the drop-down menu
- Parameter → Enter "bestellvorschlagemail" as the parameter
- Active → Check the box to use the process starter
Each e-mail shows the same result as the "Order proposal" interface. The column on the far right shows how many units of each article are lacking in stock in comparison, so you can check whether open orders can be covered or the minimum stock can be maintained.
