How do I create a new purchase order line when ordering a second copy of an e-book?
When ordering a second copy of an ebook, one option is to add a new invoice line connected to an existing PO line as described in the presentation How to order a second copy of an e-book (suggested method)
Alternately, sometimes libraries need to create a new PO line (e.g. when orders are created in external systems like GOBI) and these are the steps:
- Conduct an Electronic Portfolios search for the resource for which you want to order an additional copy
- Select Additional Order from the actions list
- Enter order information as you would for any other order you create manually
Additional orders do not create new portfolios.
The Order Type "Electronic Book - One Time" is not currently available when placing additional orders. If you are interested in this functionality please see the idea posted in the Ideas Exchange.
