We refer to all movement of inventory as Shipments in MyBlackbird, which is why this term is now used in place of Purchase Orders. To access your shipments, you must first navigate to the Shipping & Delivery Management Block and then select the Inventory Shipments Block.
Inventory Shipments Dashboard
Here, you will be able to see your previous Shipments (as well as any that are outstanding). You will also be able to create a new standalone Shipment for when product arrives at your dispensary from a vendor that is not using MyBlackbird shipments.
One column that is important to note on this dashboard is the “Status” column. This column shows us how much of our purchase order has already been received and processed by our staff.
We can review each of these POs individually by clicking on them in the table.
In the above image, we’ve received 6 of our last 8 purchase orders. The 7th Purchase Order (Shipment) is one that we haven’t started processing at all (so the progress bar is empty), and the 8th PO (at the bottom) is in progress. Based on the bar it looks like we’ve received about 50% of the 8th purchase order at this time.
Creating New Shipments
To create a new inventory shipment, select the green + New Shipments button in the top right corner of your Inventory Shipments dashboard. From here, you will be able to name your new purchase order, edit its description, and select the vendor who you are receiving inventory from.
An example of the Create Inventory Shipment form
After clicking the Create Shipment button, you will be brought to a screen where we can then begin entering the new inventory you're receiving into the POS.
From this screen, you can also edit the name of your Inventory Shipment, delete it (if you haven’t received any inventory), and upload any files we have that might be relevant to it.
