  • If you would like to partially issue the request, select Yes in the Issue Inventory Now? field. This will change the status to Approved.
  • Change the number in the Qty Approved box to reflect the amount of items you are issuing now.
  • Check the box next to Create a back order request for the remaining quantity not issued? to create a back order for the remaining quantity.
