Add Blanket Order type for Sales Orders module

Now Blanket Order functionality is implemented only for Purchase Order, but the same functionality is used for Sales Orders. It is should be implemented in SO module.

    Echoing everyone else's needs. This was available in our old character based ERP from 1987 and we're now manually performing the tasks. Extremely inefficient to say the least.

    Client coming from sage 100 has this feature out of the box. Giving the ability to track and perform blanket POs as well.

    Piling on.... we just went live with a customer who could really use this. Their prior system had this capability.

    I am actually amazed this is still in future consideration. This is a must in sales for annual contracts. The more annual contracts the more business continues. Seems like what the summit was preaching.

    This is a must-have for B2B fulfillment companies.

    Yes, please! This has been a common request in demos with prospects.

    I personally would like to see the following features from the Purchase Orders screen be available on the Sales Orders screen:

    1. Selecting a Type of Blanket to create a Blanket Sales Order.

    2. The ADD BLANKET PO and ADD BLANKET PO LINE buttons be available as ADD BLANKET SO and ADD BLANKET SO LINE so you can easily add a line from a Blanket Sales Order to a Regular Sales Order.

    3. The DOCUMENT DETAILS -> Qty. On Receipts field be added as DOCUMENT DETAILS -> Qty. On Receipts so you can easily see how much of a Blanket Sales Order line has already been "consumed" by a Regular Sales Order and so the line will automatically close once the Blanket Sales Order line has been fully "consumed".

    4. The DOCUMENT DETAILS -> Order Nbr. field be added and populated on a Regular Sales Order line so the link is maintained back to the Blanket Sales Order line that it came from.

    Please make this happen, this is starting to cause havoc in our company, is there any work around? We have been creating shipments off large quantity sales orders and it is just messy. Also replenishment wants me to purchase inventory I don't need because the system things we are about to ship all we have....just awful..

    This is a must have feature for anyone in a variety of distribution industries.

    No brainer.  If our vendors' software can't handle blanket PO's for "their customers".......why do we have blanket order functionality for "our vendors".......
