In our fast paced, short handed parts department, we often need to create and place an order for an item while on the phone with the vendor, with 3 or 4 other tasks happening around us. By using the order list, we are always accidentally deleting items that need to be on the order list, which do not seem to return. It takes way too long to clear the checks from the order list and several more steps, just to get a blank PO. Creating a quote and ordering the item through the quote adds a step that does not create useful linking data, since the quote will be ignored once the items are ordered. We also have keep-full vendors for items where the vendor will come and prepare his sales order, for which we need to provide a PO number, to be completed after the product is delivered. There is no point in a multi-step process when all we need is a number, right away. It would be helpful (but not worth waiting for this feature), if a PO number is not allocated to the process until a button is pressed, like the "Order Now" or "Order Later" later buttons on the General PO.
