Topic: Select(double click) item from shortage report

You can double click to open on some pages but not the shortage report. It would be nice to pull up the item and change the default vendor before issuing POs.

That 'Double Click' to open the item detail window is actually quite a new feature in MiniMRP. I'll see about having it added to the shortage reports.
But I do want to say that the shortage report always shows the default vendor but when you click that checkbox in the shortage report then that doesn't add the item to that vendor's shopping cart. It simply tells MiniMRP that you want to buy that item. If an item has multiple vendor's then starting a PO from any of those vendors and the item will appear in the PO. When the item is ordered it then no longer appears in any other vendor's PO.
What I've just explained is one thing that a couple of users have found confusing. Most people seem to like that ability to order from non-default vendor. While others say flagged/checked items should only appear in the default vendor's PO.

My experience is that it only adds the part if you open a PO for the default vendor. If I open one of the other vendors on the list it does not add the part from the shortage list.

I'm not seeing this.
If i have three suppliers for a component, when i select the "Buy" box, only the default supplier contains that part for order.
This i think would be correct, i would not wnat this part appearing in multiple supplier orders, as this would mean i could order it from the a non preferred (maybe more expensive)suppier.
I am hoping this is not a new feature that has been added?

I take back what I said.
v4 never used to show the vendor name in the shortage report and if you checked the buy box for an item in the report then that item would appear in any PO for any vendor capable of supplying that item.
That behaviour was dropped in v5. Now the item is only pre-populated into the default vendor's purchase order.
