4.01 How to Reorder an Item

← All Topics
Table of Contents

When a vendor-supplied inventory item is running low or is depleted, users can make a reorder request.  There are two ways to reorder items from LabArchives Inventory. 

From Inventory Page: 

First locate the item you want to reorder via search or scrolling. On the right-hand side of the item’s row, there is an option to reorder. Click on “Reorder” and the order request window opens with the amount in stock and date of last order.

Tip: Items that are out of stock are not automatically included in the inventory list.  Be sure to check the box under the Availability filter to include out of stock items in the list.  The item that needs to be re-ordered may be there. 

From Inventory Item: 

Locate the item you want to reorder (see tip above regarding out of stock items) and click on the Item name. At the top of the Item information page, an option to reorder is listed. Click on “Reorder” and the Order Request window will be displayed as shown above. Click “Request Item” and the request will be listed on the Orders tab and a notification will be sent to the Lab Manager(s). 

 

Order Request

The order request includes key fields needed to place the order.  Most of the required fields are likely to be populated already: 

Name
Inventory Type
Catalog #
Vendor 

To complete the Order request, click “Request Item” and the request will be listed on the Orders tab and a notification will be sent to the Lab Manager(s).
