Creating Sales Orders | Online Help - Zoho CRM

Creating Sales Orders

In Zoho CRM, you can store sales order details by entering data in the sales order details form.

  1. Some of the standard fields may not be visible or editable depending on your organization business process.
  2. In case you want to add or modify fields, please contact your System Administrator for more details on the usage of other fields.

Create Sales Orders Individually

To create sales orders

  1. In the Sales Orders module, click Create Sales Order.
  2. In the Create Sales Orders page, enter the sales order details.
  3. Under Ordered Items, enter the product details.
  4. Under Product Name, type in at least one character of the Product Name to search for the desired product and choose it from the drop-down. The only way to add products is by choosing them from the drop-down. You cannot add them otherwise. Also, the search results are affected by words separated by a space. For example, typing "P" will bring up "i pad", provided the product name is stored as "i pad" (as two words). If it is stored as "ipad", typing "p" will not bring up the product. To bring this up, you must type "i”.

    To know more about a product listed in the drop-down, point your mouse to the Info icon next to the product.

  5. Enter the desired quantity for the chosen product.
  6. Add more product lines as required by clicking the +Add Row button. Note that you can add up to 200 line items in a sales order.
  7. Once you have added all product lines, click + New Product to add them to the sales order. All the details required for the chosen line item (including taxes, price book discounts and product description for the chosen product) will be populated automatically.

    Simply drag and drop line items if you wish to reorder the product lines. To view the Product Quantity and Unit price, point your mouse to the Product Name. To view Total after Discount, point your mouse to Discount.

    If you wish to add the list price from an associated price book, click on the Price Book Look Up icon to browse and select the desired price book.

  8. To edit the details of a line item, click on the Edit icon that appears when you point your mouse to a value such as tax or discount. Editing a value changes any related values automatically.

    To view the Discount and Range details for the associated price book, point your mouse to the Discount value and click on the Info icon that appears.

  9. Click Save.
  1. The Product Details section is not customizable. If you wish to add any other details in the section such as Billing info, that is not possible.

To clone sales orders

  1. In the Sales Orders tab, click a particular sales order that you want to be cloned.
  2. In the Sale Order Details page, click  [More icon] and select Clone from the drop-down options

  3. In the Clone Sale Orders page, modify the required details.
  4. Click Save.

Associate Sales Order with Other Records

You can associate a sales order with other records such as, activities, attachments and notes.

  • Invoices: To create invoices from the sales order.
  • Open Activities: To add tasks related to sales order.
  • Closed Activities: To display the closed activities.
  • Attachments: To add files and notes to sales order.
  • Emails: To view e-mail messages.

  1. In case you have custom fields in your Sales Order, you must map it with the corresponding custom fields in the invoice. The mapping must be done before you convert the sales order.

Convert Sales Order in Bulk

Mass conversion of sales order is also possible in the Sales Order module by selecting multiple records from the list view to convert.

To convert sales order in bulk

  1. Click the Sales Orders tab.
  2. From the list of sales orders, select the ones that you want to convert.
  3. Click  Actions dropdown Mass Convert.
  4. In the  Mass Convert pop-up, do the following:
    For the  Convert Sales Order To  field, the  Invoice  checkbox is selected by default.

    • Click the Change link to select one user as the owner for the sales orders or invoices that the quotes are being converted to. By default, all the sales orders or invoices will be assigned to the users who own the respective quotes.
