Purchase Orders are aimed to help companies forecast and keep track of external costs, such as jobs provided by freelancers, or machines provided by external suppliers. For more information see the 'Supplier Costs' section. Click on this button to create Custom Fields at Purchase Order level.
Use Counter For PO Numbers
If "Use Counter For PO Numbers"=No, when creating a PO and pressing Cancel on it, the second PO will get the same number as the first. If "Use Counter For PO Numbers"=Yes, the second PO will get a DIFFERENT number than the first. In this case the setting uses a global counter: There is a global counter that simply always increments when you pull a new number from it. it never decreases to reuse lower numbers. When it doesn't use the "Counter", it allocates new numbers by looking at the current highest PO number + 1. This means it might reuse the same number multiple times if you press Cancel before saving the PO. It also means that when you save the PO, someone might have created a PO in the meantime, causing the number of your PO to change.
Incoming Invoice Customs
When the supplier's invoice arrives, you can link an Incoming Invoice to an existing Purchase Order, or simply add an Incoming Invoice without connecting to any Purchase Order.

Use Buy As Sell Rate When Adding Incoming Invoice Lines To Projects
Applies when linking Incoming Invoice lines to a Project. If 'Yes', the line's sell rate will be the same as the buy. If No, the line's sell rate will be set to 0. In both cases, the sell rate can be later modified in the Project.
