I have been using your WooCommerce stock management plugin and am continually impressed by its features and functionality. I have a suggestion for a feature that I believe could greatly enhance the utility of your plugin, especially for businesses dealing with backorders.
Feature Suggestion: Creation of Purchase Orders from Backordered Items
I propose a feature that allows users to create a new Purchase Order (PO) directly from orders that are currently in a "backorder" status. This would streamline the process of restocking items that customers are actively waiting for. The process could be as follows:
When creating a new PO, there should be an option or a button labeled something like “Import from Backorders.”
Upon clicking this, the plugin would automatically compile a list of all items from orders that are currently on backorder.
These items would then be populated into the new PO, saving time and reducing the likelihood of errors in manually transferring this information.
This feature would be particularly beneficial for businesses that frequently have items on backorder, ensuring that restocking efforts are directly aligned with customer demand. It would not only expedite the restocking process but also improve customer satisfaction by potentially reducing wait times for backordered products.
I believe this addition would make an already excellent plugin even more valuable to your users. I hope you will consider this suggestion for a future update.
Thank you for your time and for providing a platform that continually adapts to the needs of its users.
