Once a purchase order is sent in Galley, you have the ability to receive the items in the purchase order. After an item is marked as received, it will increase the theoretical inventory amount of that item. Note that the receiving workflow must be enabled in your account before this feature can be accessed. If you do not currently have access to the receiving workflow and would like to, please contact a Galley representative.
For an item to be received in Galley, a purchase order must first be generated. Purchase orders can either be generated manually from the Purchase Orders page or automatically is based on menu volumes. To create purchase orders from your menu volumes, select your menu(s) from the Menus Catalog. Then, click the "Purchase" icon in the toolbar at the bottom of the page.
Once you have made your desired edits on the Purchasing page, click Create Purchase Orders. You will then be taken to the Purchase Orders Catalog.
To be able to receive the items from a purchase order, the purchase order must be marked as sent and the delivery date must be equal to the current date. You can complete both of these actions on a purchase order's page. You can change the status of a purchase order to sent in the Actions dropdown and set the Deliver On date to by clicking Select Date. Note that if the available delivery days and lead-time are set for a vendor on its own page, the delivery date will be automatically set, however, it will remain editable.
After the purchase orders are all marked as sent and set to be received today, you will be able to find them in the receiving workflow. To navigate to the receiving workflow, go to the Inventory page and click Receive.
You will then be able to adjust the amount and cost of each item that you received to the expected amount and save it to your inventory.
